As more and more individuals choose to take a cruise by themselves, Norwegian Cruise Line is making it easier – and cheaper to take a solo vacay.
According to Travel+Leisure, Norwegian Cruise Line will add 1,000 solo cabins to its fleet of 19 ships, meaning solo travelers don’t have to pay for double occupancy rooms. “We strive to provide our guests with diverse offerings to create their dream vacation. Since we first launched our solo staterooms in 2010 with Norwegian Epic, they have been quite popular with single travelers,” David J. Herrera, president of Norwegian Cruise Line, said in a statement released to Travel + Leisure. “We are continuously listening to our guests to deliver the experience they want. After realizing the growing demand of individuals looking to travel on their own, we have now expanded single occupancy staterooms across our fleet.”
In a report from Travel+Leisure, the solo staterooms will consist of three categories: Solo Balcony, Solo Oceanview, and Solo Inside. As an additional perk, cruisers traveling in a solo stateroom will have access to a private studio lounge on certain ships. The private lounge will be a place for solo travelers gather and will be stocked with coffee, beer, wine and snacks.
According to Cruise Critic, the implementation of the new solo staterooms is set to begin in January 2024, but the cabins will go on sale starting this week. According to the cruise line, pricing will depend on availability and demand, but solo cruisers can expect to pay less than a traditional double occupancy cabin.
