If you are not interested in sharing a cabin, then yes, you will have to pay a little more to have the whole cabin to yourself.

The last time I checked, its 50% more at least. Might be different from operator to operator. Solo cruising is never economically sound.

Solo cruise sounds incredibly boring. What do you intend to do? Eat all day and lie by the pool? I feel a cruise is only fun if you go with a group of friends/family to play games and chat with.

I went for a cruise with a group of good friends. Though I enjoyed their company, the cruise itself was pretty meh. It's just like a big floating hotel. I'll rather check into a real hotel. At least you have the option of going elsewhere if bored.

Just my 2 cents.

Exactly, it's a floating hotel. It's great for visiting locations in around the area without having to lug your luggage around moving from hotel to hotel. Good for certain trips, not that great for others.

I would never go for a cruise to nowhere or anywhere around this region... The other area which I think may work well is Greece. Alaska is definitely a good way to travel which is where I had my first cruise.

One day I just might set out on a trip to a cruise myself. Don't have anybody, my whole family is dead.

Solo cruising is good if you want to find a hook-up for a few days.

some cruise lines have solo cabins (single bed), sometimes especially when nearing the sail date, there will be offers for single cruisers.

RC has meetups for single's, and GLBT groups for normal cruises.

in US/Australia, there are even whole cruise for single people. these are mainly older folkes who are looking for companionship.

The thing is, most of the time on board of a ship, u can find people from various countries, and its a "safer" environment than trying to do the same in a different country.

Might as well save the money and travel solo to other country eg. Japan, taiwan when all is clear. Yes it going to take a long time but cruise obviously has its risks too.
