9 tips for cruising alone
Walking onto a ship alone for an Alaskan cruise may seem like stepping into solitary confinement for seven days, but sailing solo provides us with the opportunity to choose to kayak all the time and never take a single hike, or to skip all the tours and finally read that stack of digital novels all day in our cabin. Here are some tips for how to make the most of a lone voyage.

cruise buddy , is a good place to look .i found a nice person to travel with on here . we talked 10 days before we went ,we were both from the same city and we hit it off . and the good thing about it was we are still friends today .and only had to pay half the bill
Unfortunately, cruising solo is not that easy, you have to agree to room with a virtual stranger, for example if the berth is $1499 per person double occupancy and you don't want to room with a stranger, you pay $2998 for your cruise. The only break you may get is a good room mate, or they can't find anyone and then you can cruise for $1499 without a room mate. One would think that with so many "solo" people these days, they would start offering single rooms on the new ships.
