Raffles,
I must agree with Beers. Trust me, you'll be much better off enjoying the room by yourself. Peace of mind is priceless! You don't want somebody yappin their head off or annoying the crap outta ya with their weird habits/ways. Why do you think I'm traveling alone?!

Raffles: pick a last-minute deal, Carnival and RCCL have them from 199-249 for 4-5 day, 399 on 7. The single-supplement isn't always double the price. On one cruise, I was charged $105 more for solo. It doesn't cost anything to call and ask. Some cruises are better than others, but in reality a cruise is a cruise and you'll have a blast if you want to. If you choose a port within driving distance, then you are really saving some money!

I have read most of the reviews for this posting; however I still have some questions.

I am single,22 and male. Myself and 3 guys the same age are looking for a cruise that has the crowd from 22-mid 30's. We live in San Diego and are looking for a cruise like San Diego, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, San Diego. We could also leave from Long Beach or LA, doesn't matter. Something like 7 days or so.

We are looking to spend less than $800.00 per person. We are looking to leave late April.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

Try www.vacationstogo.com click hosted singles cruise. I just booked my 3rd singles cruise with them. They are a great company!

We had 170 singles on Vacations to Go singles cruise last Halloween. Booking a cruise through a singles agency is the best way to go, trying to find them on a normal cruise is like finding needles in haystacks, mostly couples and familys with kids.

IMHO, a single, ambulatory straight male who books with a single cruise will be like a chicken in a den of foxes -- literally. Many of the people (women?) on these single cruises are looking to meet "someone". You may get latched onto and not be able to enjoy your "me time". It may be a bit overwhelming if you book with a single group. I have never done a single cruise but have been told that many of the activities are designed to match people up. If that is what you want -- go for it. But if you want some solo time and the ability to do as you please, I would pass on the singles groups.

I would suggest booking a 3 or 4 night Bahamas cruise. Those tend to have a younger crowd and are definite party ships (not drunken but party).

Raffles - this is not a good idea and as tncruiseman says - you'll look back and agree the extra money was worth it.
Yeah, I could not imagine going on a week long cruise with someone I did not know.

LOL this just cracked me up. I agree I would never share a room with anyone I didn't know....I'm a single dad and unless my kids go with me...I go solo. And I don't do those mixers either as they are just stupid..I find friends on my own and have a good time. And if your gay and its not a bad thing...forget the gay cruises....too expensive and who wants to be on a ship with 3000 queens....OMG!!! Just let me find one hottie on board and I'm fine for the week. Any comments?
