Love to cruise solo and hate paying double occupancy cruise fares? One cruise line has now eliminated all single supplement fees on ocean view staterooms on their cruise ships.
According to a May 2018 study released by Booking.com, the number of Google searches for solo travel has risen 40 percent since 2015 Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has now waived all single supplement fees on ocean view staterooms for cruises to the Bahamas.
Solo travel has become more common for all travelers, regardless of age, income or gender. According to the same Booking.com study, 40 percent of baby boomers have taken a solo trip in the last year and 21 percent plan on taking one this year. With 34 percent of respondents agreeing that solo travel is among the “top five trips that they have already been on and would like to go on again,” the demand is not slowing down for destinations to accommodate this demographic of travelers.
While other cruise lines often charge double occupancy rates for a single person to cruise alone in a stateroom, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s solo traveler rates with no single supplement fees are innovative for the industry. Oceanview staterooms with no single supplement are available on all cruises, every day of the week, with rates beginning at $149 per person. With a welcome reception exclusively for all solo travelers, there is also the opportunity to meet similar cruisers and even make plans to experience some of the cruise together.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s Grand Classica and Grand Celebration offer daily departures from the Port of Palm Beach, making it easy for travelers to schedule an island retreat any time with an itinerary all their own. Whether seeking to relax and rejuvenate or experience some fun and adventure, a two-night cruise is the perfect length of time for a mid-week escape or weekend getaway.
