Whether it’s a break from the mundane routine that is the 9-5 or simply to discover somewhere new, solo travel can be an extremely beneficial form of holidaying. While many may begin their solo travel adventure at airport security, cruising has many distinct benefits for a solo traveller; that’s why we’ve teamed up with Supercruises to discover why cruising is an enviable option for any solo adventure.
Tailor your holiday to you
There is huge variety when it comes to the type of cruise ship available to set sail on for your solo adventure. If you’re looking to socialise and meet likeminded people while away, then a large 5,000 passenger vessel where parties and entertainment are a plenty may be more suited. However, if you’re looking to use a solo getaway to reduce your pace and invest in some much-needed rest and relaxion then a more intimate ship would be best. However, larger cruise ships are more likely to offer spa and restoration facilities such as saunas, massage treatments and swimming pools so researching the best cruise line for your holiday before setting sail is recommended.
If you’re unsure on which country or destination you would like to embark on during your solo getaway then a cruise is the perfect way to see multiple locations all within one holiday. There are thousands of cruise itineraries available to book on to meaning that destinations in each corner of the world can be explored from your base accommodation onboard. Discovering new destinations on a cruise also comes with the added benefit of shore excursions; activities and tours that take place in each docked destination enabling travellers to discover a new location under the guidance of a knowledgeable guide.
Solo travelling can often be tainted with the discussion of safety when travelling alone or in smaller groups. However, a cruise offers travellers the opportunity to discover the world from a safe, secure and reliable base; while also removing the stress of having to book multiple accommodation and transport options. Travellers can settle in their own cabins, which can be booked to have a private balcony for those looking for a quieter trip or a centrally located cabin for those looking for a fast-paced trip, while assured that friendly staff are on hand throughout their getaway.
