Why You Should Cruise Norwegian as a Solo Traveller

Once upon a time, it used to cost a small fortune if you wanted to cruise solo, as you were basically paying for the double occupancy cost of a stateroom by yourself. But no more, as Norwegian Cruise Line has come to the rescue with their award-winning Studio Staterooms where no single supplement applies!

And there's so much more to cruising solo with Norwegian that just the cabin. In fact, for the fifth year in a row, Norwegian Cruise Line has been voted the Best Cruise Line for Solo Travelers by readers of Porthole Cruise Magazine. Why? Let's take a look!

Studio Staterooms

Decorated in vibrant colors, the hip Studio Staterooms on select Norwegian Cruise Line ships are sleek and modern. At an average of 100-square-feet, they’re surprisingly spacious while offering all the necessities: a full-size bed, separate sink and shower areas, as well as a flat-screen TV, a hair dryer (so convenient!), and a safe. Cool features of the Studio Staterooms include chic, white-tufted accent walls and a large one-way porthole window to the corridor.

Studio Lounge

Along with stylish Studio Staterooms, sailing solo with Norwegian Cruise Line also gives you private key card access to the Studio Lounge, that's exclusively available to Studio guests. Here you can enjoy complimentary refreshments throughout the day, relax with a book, watch the big-screen TV, or simply hang out while having a drink with your fellow Studio cruisers. You can also order room service from the Studio Lounge!

Solo Cruising Fun

If you’d like to mingle with other single travelers, Norwegian Cruise Line offers meet-ups for solo cruisers. Some ships even host a pub crawl, and there’s always a Friends of Dorothy happy hour. You can sip an umbrella drink as you lounge poolside, chill out at the Ice Bar or take a margarita tasting class. There will be plenty of time to pamper yourself at the spa, followed by enjoying broadway-style entertainment in the evening. Shore excursions will offer another fun way to meet up with fellow cruisers, as will participating in on board activities such as the ropes course and climbing walls.

Mojito Sampler

And it doesn't matter if you’re traveling solo by choice, happen to be the extra person in your group, or just because it’s a better option for you and your friend, Norwegian Cruise Line makes single cruising so easy and enjoyable. Their award-winning Studio Staterooms are available on the Norwegian Bliss , Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway and Pride of America.
