  1. Suggestion….can you please also add text so that we can read it without having to listen to the video.
    We are on our boat and internet is iffy and the sound keeps breaking up.
    Too hard to listen to, and I just end up being frustrated and hit Delete. Thanks.
    Would love to read this Solo travel article, but I guess not.

  2. I agree! Text too please!

    1. I will be posting an article about single supplements in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled!

  3. Enjoyed the cruising solo talk. I’m 70 and have been cruising solo for several years now. Like most people my age, price is a big deal cause you are living on a declining income. I’ve sailed on NCL in their studio cabins which are well thought out and cozy. The dedicated lounge is very nice also with magazines and snacks/drinks. But, these studio cabins are very expensive on NCL. This past August I did a Baltic Sea cruise out of Copenhagen on RCI Serenade of the Seas in one of 3 studio cabins on the ship. My fare was $500.00 less than on NCL Getaway studio cabin also out of Copenhagen same ports of call / number of days. I did a 5 day Caribbean out of Tampa on RCI Brilliance of the Seas in studio for only $330.00, a pretty good deal. The most important thing I’ve learned about booking studio cabins is you have to book way, way in advance – at least a year! Example: this past January I booked a 12 day Mediterranean cruise out of Barcelona aboard RCI Jewel of the Seas studio cabin for just under $1600.00 dollars. The cruise departs on September 29, 2020!!! Sometimes I will pay the single sup if it is a ship/cruise I really want to do. I’m booked on Celebrity Constellation out of Tampa – 11 day Eastern Caribbean February 5, 2021. The solo traveler in a regular 2 person cabin was $400.00 less than paying double fare. Any savings like this is welcome! Hope this information helps you and other solo travelers. Eric
