Best Cruises for Singles

Whether you’re newly single or a seasoned veteran in singledom, sometimes the best vacations are the ones you take alone. Imagine having no pressure to do anything except for what you want to do. Eat, drink, explore museums, or nap on the beach. You’re completely open to mixing and mingling with other solo cruisers at singles meet-ups and bar crawls around the ship. You'll quickly find that singles cruises don't have to be any different than traveling with others—it’s all about your attitude and openness to breaking out of your comfort zone.

You can take the time to rest, relax, and soak in the sun or party into the wee hours of the morning! Either way, your Freestyle Vacation® will be a memorable one.

Greek Island Cruises

One thing to love about a cruise to Greece to Greece is that the locals make you feel like family wherever you go.

The islands are chock full of other travelers looking to unwind and party. No matter where you go, you'll be embraced with open arms — just be careful about overindulging on too much ouzo!

If you've always dreamed of having a classic European vacation, this cruise is your jam. Knock Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece, and Turkey off your bucket list and get ready for some epic dining and culture. You'll feel like a character in a movie, classily sipping wine and tasting local delicacies, and running around and exploring the ins and outs of the cities with nothing (and nobody) holding you behind! Talk about the stuff of dreams, people.

South America Cruises

Cruise to Buenos Aires
Explore South America on a cruise from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

If you had dreams since you were little about being a world explorer, you must take advantage of a South American cruise at some point in your life. Flip your world upside down (almost literally) as you witness the southern tip of South America and all of the wonders that it has to offer to solo cruisers like you. Magellan has nothing on you! When you make it to Argentina, you'll quickly find a dancing partner; it is the birthplace of the most passionate of dances … the tango. You won't be single for long!

The most important point to remember when traveling solo is that your vacation is what you make it! Some of the most incredible people and places are waiting out there — go find them. Norwegian makes it easy by taking the stress out of traveling and giving you plenty of well-deserved "me" time as well as introducing you to people you normally would not have met.
