Cruise Tips for Singles

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Wednesday and we have almost made it through the middle of another work week. I hope you are having a beary safe and great week so far. It is another busy week for Dab the AIDS Bear and me.

The last several days I have been blogging about cruising since so many people take cruises during the winter. But for those that are single, there are also specials tips for singles.

Cruise lines are among the worst offenders when it comes to charging "single supplement fees" for those of us me included who travel alone. When a cabin for two is only occupied by one, the cruise line charges as if there are two people.

But cruise companies are learning that singles are a huge part of the travel market. If you want to meet people on board, don't worry singles' lounges and meal seatings are options to mingle. Cruises are also beginning to waive the supplement fees, though not widely yet. However, the Norwegian "Epic" now offers 128 studio cabins just for singles which sold out almost immediately. And other lines will likely soon follow.

Hope you have a beary safe and great Wednesday!

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,
