Post CRUISE LINE Single Supplement/Solo Bargains HERE

Recommended Posts

Decent for those needing 8 weeks to plan ahead is Getaway

12/8-13 NOLA , Studio with drinks $66/day.  $329/5 days.

Don't forget the $20/day drink tips are added.

I'm considering B2B with Getaway 9 day 12/13-22. I like long

cruises, would only do a 5 day with a B2B.

Also, no CruiseNext with 5 day. But, if you are already paying

to be at the cruise terminal for one cruise, there is significant 

time and $ savings to combine for a B2B.

NCL has a solo balcony special for the 5 day December 8th sailing out of New Orleans.  You are also allowed to use a Cruise Next Certificate for this 5 day sailing.  Balcony solo rate with taxes approximately $585 less $250 certificate makes it a great deal.

 I am in driving distance so this is a terrific deal for me!

Awesome.   I am looking for something out of Miami or FLL (I know NCL doesnt do FLL)

 

I am really hesitant to do non studio ships traveling solo because of the less single events and having to do freestyle dinners solo

I've booked a 5-day Mexican Riviera cruise on the Joy next January (solo discount made the balconies cheaper than inside). This ship lacks Studios but according to the dailies that have been posted for other sailings, there's a dedicated Solo director who hosts a daily meet-up before dinner. This seems to be standard for NCL.

 

The personality assessment I took at work described me as "selectively social," which may be why I don't mind Freestyle dining on my own... I've already reserved my table-for-one for Q, La Cucina, and Cagney's! Oddly enough, being on my own is only a pain at the Garden Cafe since it would be so helpful to have one person grab a table while the others rummage through the buffet selections.

If you can swing the airfare and the time off, NCL Jewel Nov 1 - 14 2019 Hawaii to Tahiti inside cabin $735 Cdn pre tax.  Then just stay on board for Tahiti to Sydney Australia Nov 14 - Dec 1 Inside $802 pre tax, Ocean view $1003, Balcony $1672. Covers some of the same islands, but air fare to Hawai may be cheaper than air fare to Papeete, Tahiti.

RCL Explorer of the Seas 9 night sailing on November 29th out of Miami - for an inside cabin, it was $1,300 CDN so I can only imagine what it is in USD.

 

Stops at Labadee, Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire.

 

I'm on this sailing and upgraded from an interior to a balcony since the huge price drops.

NCL is showing $99 for 5 days Bahamas out of Miami for next week in search results, crazy if its real

 

Looking in December though so Sail Aways are still good $200-300 on Pearl (Mia) or Sun (Orl) (or Sky to Bahamas)

 

Problem is they get you with not including any promos, you want the promos, a few hundred more

 

I feel they are also misleading, even on more expensive cruise , where it shows the green bar for take two free offers on studios, once you click its only one free offer

You can use regular CruiseNext certificates for 3-5 night cruises thru the end of the year.

Sorry see the solo $1550  price is for 2021.  Great deal.

I am on the Celebrity and would really like to know why I can’t find it.  I searched for 4/21 on the Reflection to Europe and it doesn’t come up.  I appreciate any help.  Thanks.

Using their "Find a Cruise" section, just put in April 2021 departing from Ft Lauderdale then scroll down.  It's the last (9th) cruise listed (Azores & Spain Transatlantic).  An inside is coming up at $1418 for a solo booking.
Have fun!

I think they were doing something with the website yesterday. I couldnt find it either for awhile. This is the link if you are still having issues. It appears the 11 inside category is sold out and the 10 inside category is now $80 higher. All in total $1630

Costa Fascinosa (the Ryanair of cruising🤣)

 

SAVONA - RIO de JENEIRO

19 days, 18 nights. 16th November - 4th December 2020. €886,00 

savona - marsella - barcelona - malaga - funchal - tenerife - recife - maceio - salvador bahia - iiheus - rio de jeneiro

 

SAVONA - SANTOS 

20 days, 19 nights. 16th November - 5th December 2020.€925,00

 

BARCELONA - SANTOS

18 days, 17nights. 18th November - 5th December 2020. €847,00

 

Just got back from a week in Rio after this cruise. Costa to me are the Ryanair of cruising, cheap tickets to get you on board then the hard sell begins once you board the ship. Don’t expect Ritz standards on board, but then again you are not paying for the Ritz. I have done this cruise in the last 2 years and will be booking this cruise again. The vast majority of the passengers are Brazilian and Italians with a sprinkling of Brits, very few children. The PAs are done in multiple languages including British. The cruise i have just done included 6 straight days at sea from the Canary Islands to Brazil (we also had, not 1 but 2 unscheduled stops in Cape Verdi on the same day for medical emergency’s), this cruise has 5 days at sea over the Atlantic. Entertainment was good (although i have seen it all before), the food in the buffet was hit and miss, if your potatoes and meat were warm and not stone cold, you were lucky. I have to say that boarding the ship in Barcelona and alighting the ship in Rio was painless and very quick. 

If you are used to luxury cruising then i would say that Costa is probably not for you, however if you are looking for a cheap no frills longish cruise then go for it, you can’t argue with the price.

The prices are for inside cabins and from Costa Spain...

Just booked solo inside, Savona to Rio, 19 nights (16th November - 4th December 2020) for just £584,00 on Costa UK site.

I have also booked solo return, Rio to Savona 19 nights (14th April - 2nd May 2021)for just £571,00 on Costa UK site.

Both are on Costa Fascinosa, and as I will be traveling solo both legs, I really wont be complaining about the price. 

As I live in Spain I have paid the deposit for both cruises using my Spanish bank card, I can now only hope that the pound sterling tanks against the euro over the next couple of months before I pay the balance.😍

Valiant Lady cruises went on sale last night and there's no single supplement.  This is the second ship from Virgin Voyages.  There's three different 7 night Med itineraries available starting May 2021.

 

Single occupancy in a standard cabin is cheaper than the smaller solo cabins on all the dates I've checked.  I put the September 26th, 2021 French Daze & Ibiza Nights 7 night cruise below as an example (one of the cheapest dates).  Double checked by going to checkout and the fare is still listed as "1 sailor in 1 cabin".

 

Valiant Lady 9/26/2021
7 nights from Barcelona


Solo Insider: $1575
The Insider: $1325


Solo Sea View: $1925
The Sea View: $1450


LTD View Sea Terrace: $1550
The Sea Terrace: $1650
Central Sea Terrace: $1700
XL Sea Terrace: $1900

 

Taxes/Fees $90
