Why a Cruise is a Great Vacation You get a lot for your MONEY – Superb Dining with a wide variety of included choices – Day and Night Entertainment and Activities – Lodging and transportation to multiple destinations
You get a lot for your TIME – No time wasted packing and unpacking – No “boring” road trips when you should be having fun – No figuring out how to meet others—it’s all there for you Why a Cruise is a Great Vacation
But Singles are often Left Out! Cruises aren’t “built” for Singles... Pricing is based on two people per stateroom—singles pay more but don’t get anything “extra” Activities are centered around couples and families Few other singles onboard, so you’re “on your own” We didn’t think that was fair! Singles deserve to enjoy a cruise vacation too!
What’s a SinglesCruise? An organized event for a group of singles— choose from 12 departures a year A full range of activities to encourage mixing, mingling and socializing Dine together every night as a group—no awkward “third wheel” dinners Your choice of cruising solo, cruising with a friend, or roommate matching
What Makes it Different? Not just a Cruise—an Event: – You’ll feel like you “belong” – Our Hosts and Veterans welcome you With People Just Like You: – Interact with others before and after the cruise – It’s not what you think—it’s even better!
It’s a Terrific Value! Bring a single friend: – No “risk” of the unknown – Lower cost of sharing Roommate matching: – We’ll find a cabin mate if you’re ‘adventurous’ Solo Travel that Makes Sense: – 30% of our guests sail solo! – Even at a higher cost, cruises are still a great deal if you’re not “left out” of the fun

What You’ll Want to Know! How many people in the group? – Ranges from 30 to over 600—140 is average How old are these people? – The majority are 35 to 55, but singles cruisers range from 21 to 70+ What’s the Male to Female mix? – Typically it’s pretty close to 50/50 The cruise line’s price is less... why? That’s a cruise where you’ll be paying a single supplement and feel “left out.” SinglesCruise events include mixers, parties, games and group dining all designed so you feel like you “belong onboard!”
What You’ll Want to Know! How does Roommate Matching work? – ONLY by gender, and SinglesCruise tries to match close to age – Must be non-smoker – Must be in age range for “age designated” events If you don’t find a roommate for me, will I be charged more? – No—your price is guaranteed When will I learn who my roommate is? – Roughly 30 days prior to sailing – We do not give out any personal info (security reasons) So...is a SinglesCruise about “hooking up?” – Our goal is to bring people in the single lifestyle together to enjoy what a cruise has to offer and feel included.
