As a single occupant, are there any travel agencies or a cruise liners that offers quotes based upon a single occupancy rate?

Most all Travel Agencies can give a single rate quote if the space is available.

I know that Carnival does. You will still have to pay above what you would pay with a cabin mate though.

If you are going alone the inside cabins are usually the cheapest.

Most cruises are based on double occupancy...but some do book singles for 1.5 of the fare....a Travel Agent might be able to help you......Happy Cruising...

I had one experience with Carnival and the price was the full price for 2 but I did not pay any taxes on the non existant person. This amounted to about $150 less than full fare for a 7 day cruise with 4 ports. There was no 2nd $10/day gratuity either of course

Agencies have no control over the per person rules of the cruiselines. The pricing regulations are set by the lines. Carnival has the most consistantly reduced fare, at least for Cat 1A cabins. Typically 1.5 times double occ rate and sometimes lower. But on some sailings even the reduced rate is not available.

There is no agency or cruiseline that charges the double rate for a single passenger except on rare occasions and sailings. These are limited to sailings where they cannot for one reason or another fill the ship. Sailing to Galapagos islands (they have limits on the # of people allowed to visit) for instance. So on these sailings there is no difference in single or double rates.

Cheers, Neil
