CRUISE CIRCLE FOR SOLOS 

Singles Cruising Reinvented

Love the idea of cruising, but not the idea of cruising alone? We've got a new spin on singles cruising. It's so simple, and easy to join. Just pick your cruise, make your holiday plans, then join your group. There's an instant group of dinner buddies and ship meet ups with our other Cruise Circle for Solo members while at sea.

Whether you’re a seasoned independent traveller, you’ve always wanted to try going alone, or you just can't find a travel partner, there’s a lot to love about solo cruising.

With our exclusive Cruise Circle for Solos you:

*  won't ave to rely on anyone else   
can still enjoy your ‘me’ time   
* can set your own pace


And most of all, you can do whatever you want — whenever you want! 
But for all the great things about cruising solo… there are some downfalls that seem unavoidable. Now, this is where we step in! When it's time for dinner, a show or a drink, it's nice to know there's a group waiting, of other solos just like you

CRUISE SOLO, NOT ALONE

Cruise Circle for Solos is a unique concept for cruising solo:  it's cruise groups for solo travellers who want to enjoy the benefits of solo cruising without the drawbacks of travelling alone. 

The idea is simple: we’ve partnered with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to create exclusive travel groups — just for solo travellers like you, to join. 

That means you can enjoy the luxury of a beautiful cruise vacation — without the usual problems of a solo trip, like being stuck alone when you are yearning for some company , or having nobody to split the room fees with. In short, it’s the best of both worlds!

And with a wide range of destinations including the South Pacific, New Zealand, Transpacific, around Australia, and more to come, Cruise Circle for Solos is the first offering on this scale in Australia’s history — and solo cruise fans are excited!

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

 

It’s great having freedom to cruise solo… but then I get to dinner and I’m embarrassed to sit alone.

I enjoy solo cruises, but having a drink at the bar or dancing is no fun by yourself.

If so, you’re not alone. And what's more, until now, your options for cruising solo and finding cruise buddies have been pretty limited.  But we live for the solo travel experience. And in 2011 we decided to reinvent singles cruising, with our groups for solos.

And who else wants to avoid feeling like this?  "I hate having to answer everyone's questions about why I'm travelling alone."

WHY JOIN A CRUISE CIRCLE FOR SOLOS GROUP?

Designed with the independent solo traveller like you in mind. So when you book, you’ll get stuff that actually matters to you, like being able to:

 

  • Dine the way you want, every night. Every single night, there’s a table set just for our group. Feeling social? Enjoy a meal with the group. Want some time to yourself? Dine solo tonight -  freedom to choose how you want to dine.

  • Travel with friends, not strangers. Before every cruise, we’ll give you the chance to get in touch with the others cruising with you, before you even set foot on the ship.  

  • Enjoy pre-arranged drink meeting times. There's pre-arranged meeting times and venues on board - no more solo drinks (unless you want to drink alone).

  • (If you like) Save money by sharing a room.  If you don't mind sharing, we’ll match you with a same-sex group member, and you’ll both save. It’s completely up to you - of course, if you want your own room, that's your choice also. There's both options with our groups.

  • We take the risk, so you don’t have to. If you tried to find a cruise partner on your own, and they cancelled on you, you’d could be left with hefty cancellation fees or paying for their cost. But with Cruise Circle for Solos, we offer financial protection on your booking — so you don't lose out if your cabin mate cancels.

The ‘Not-So-Fine’ Print

We truly believe this is going to be an AWESOME opportunity for singles cruising. But before you rush to book, there are a few things we do want you to know: 

  • This is an unescorted cruise! We’ll provide the bookings, the meal reservations, the bar times, and the friends — but the rest is up to you. Yes, we know this freedom is exactly why you want to do this. But we’ve got to be clear!

  • We’re keeping it friendly. We know some people hear ‘singles cruising’ and think ‘dating’… but that’s not what we’re about. If you share, you’ll be partnered with a same-gender roommate, for obvious reasons. That’s not to say you won’t meet your match on board… but if that’s your main goal, Cruise Circle for Solos probably isn’t the right place to find it!

  • Specialty restaurants are not included. We want you to be able to choose whether you want to dine at specialty
    restaurants — so with Cruise Circle for Solos, you're not charged upfront. You’re always free to choose to book yourself — or even go with others you meet in the group!

  • No inside rooms for room sharers. As experienced cruisers know, if you’re in an inside cabin, there’s two light settings: on, and pitch dark! And even if you and your roommate are the best of friends, a night owl and a sleepyhead might not get along well at 5am when the light suddenly starts blazing overhead… so to keep the peace, we keep shared rooms to outside cabins.

  • Help your roommate sleep! We want to make sure that when you cruise, you get a great night’s sleep — so when you book, we ask for honesty about your sleep habits: snoring, CPAP machines for sleep apnoea, insomnia, or other things that might disturb a roommate. If everyone’s honest, we can make sure everyone gets a good night’s sleep!
