Fun Singles Cruises
Whether you're single and traveling alone, or with a group of other single friends, cruising is the 'single' the most popular vacation choice. Why? Well for starters, cruising is a very social vacation. You meet friendly new people at every turn – whether it's in the casino, by the pool, in the disco, at dinner, or at a formal singles gathering - so you're bound to make new friends while having the time of your life.

The Cruise Hound has partnered with Singles Cruise (a division of Minneapolis-based Carlson Travel Group, Inc.), who is the largest singles cruise operator in the United States. We selected them because of their long history of success in providing fun, affordable, and professionally-managed singles cruise groups since 1991. Below you will find a complete list of 2014 Singles Cruise sailings. What are you waiting for? Join in the fun!

May - June 2014

May - Aug 2014

What does a SinglesCruise® vacation entail?
As part of the private SinglesCruise® group, singles will take part in lively cocktail mixers, lectures, theme parties, poolside get-togethers, games, and a separate dining area just for your group. All of your onboard social activities are organized by professional cruise directors. They also coordinate optional singles shore excursions, pre/post-cruise hotel, pre-cruise dinner and a private chat site for you to join.

Is the entire ship single travelers?
No, the entire ship is not all single travelers. Although these groups typically have quite a large presence onboard the ships, there are still other "non-single" travelers onboard.

How many singles are on each cruise?
Singles can choose from a variety of cruises and itineraries planned throughout the year. Each group size varies based on the destination and season and may include anywhere from 100-400 singles onboard.

What types of Singles Cruise with SinglesCruise®?
Singles in your group will come from all over the world. Some of the guests are looking to make a romantic connection, and others are interested in meeting new friends to travel with. Most of the singles that sail with SinglesCruise® are working professionals that range in age from mid-20’s to mid-60’s. There are also several age-specific cruises offered each year.

Are the SinglesCruise® activities open to any singles onboard the ship?
No.  The SinglesCruise® programs are exclusive, and singles must book with us into the SinglesCruise® group in order to take advantage of these activities.

Do you match singles with roommates? What if I prefer my own room?
SinglesCruise® matches singles with roommates of the same gender and similar age at no additional charge. This FREE matching service saves our guests money by allowing them to take advantage of the shared (double) occupancy cabin rate. If a single prefers to room alone, we can provide rates on single occupancy cabins.

Are the prices quoted based on sharing a cabin?
Yes, all prices quoted are based on double occupancy (unless otherwise noted), and are not guaranteed until a deposit has been made, the credit card has been charged and an invoice has been physically mailed or emailed to you. Cabin prices are subject to availability and do sell out quickly, so reserve your cabin space early for the best rates.

How much is my deposit and when is my final payment due?
SinglesCruise® requires a deposit of $250 per person plus a $15 processing fee to reserve your cabin space (unless otherwise stated). Full payment is generally due 75 days prior to the sailing date (but may vary by cruise line). For your convenience, charges will automatically be processed at time of final payment. Payments can be made by personal check, Visa, Mastercard, or American Express. For those guests who book within 75 days of sailing, full payment is required at the time of reservation.

Can I book shore excursions through SinglesCruise®?
Yes, SinglesCruise® offers optional shore excursions exclusively for your group. Shore excursions are guided tours or adventures in a cruise ship’s port of call. We will provide information and booking instructions on these excursions approximately 60 days prior to each cruise. You may also purchase shore excursions directly with the cruise lines through their own Shore Excursion Desk.

Where do I sit in the dining room?
One of the benefits of cruising on a SinglesCruise® is that you have a separate area of the dining room just for your group. With the exception of the first night, you do not have an assigned seat in the dining room and we encourage you to sit with different dinner partners each night (open-seating) within your reserved tables.  Generally late dining (8:00 p.m.) is reserved for your entire singles group.

How do I find the onboard singles events?
You will be invited to a welcome reception on the first day of the cruise to receive your SinglesCruise® ID necklace and schedule of events for the week. SinglesCruise® directors also post each day’s events at the onboard hospitality desk.

Does SinglesCruise® always cruise to the same locations?
No, SinglesCruise® selects a variety of itineraries each year from three nights to twelve nights sailing to popular cruise destinations like the Eastern and Western Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, and New England. All of their upcoming cruises are featured above.

Can we meet any of the singles on our cruise before we depart?
Yes, about six weeks prior to each sailing, SinglesCruise® opens up an online chat site where you can log in and get to know other singles on your SinglesCruise®. They also typically hold an optional pre-cruise dinner and arrange a pre-cruise hotel in the port city the night before the cruise departs to welcome all of their singles and begin the fun!

Will a cruise ever be modified or cancelled?
The safety and satisfaction of our guests is always the #1 concern of the cruise line, SinglesCruise®, and The Cruise Hound. The cruise line or SinglesCruise® can cancel, modify, change or cancel a cruise at any time and for any reason whatsoever. A hosted group departure may also be modified or cancelled and may go un-hosted should there not be a sufficient number of guests.

What about last minute reservations?
Due to SinglesCruise®’s long history with the cruise lines, they are often able to accommodate last minute guests, so please contact us even if a sailing is noted as “sold-out”. We may likely still have cabins available even if the cruise line is sold-out as last minute cancellations are a regular occurrence. Please note that reservations made within 30 days of departure may be assessed a small fee.

Does a SinglesCruise® cost more then a regular cruise?
As the leading SinglesCruise® operator in the U.S., SinglesCruise® is able to negotiate favorable pricing with the cruise lines. SinglesCruise® provides an exclusive onboard program including private activities, events, cocktail parties, open seating dining, private message boards for pre cruise communication and much more! They also offer optional pre cruise dinner parties, hotel, shore excursions and transfers. Their cruises are also fully hosted by a team of professional group cruise directors who sail with you to ensure that you have a great time and fully enjoy your singles cruise experience. All of this is in addition to the standard cruise line offerings so there may be a slight premium over the cruise line.
