Travel Solo On Norwegian Cruise Lines Studio Cabins
Solo travel on Norwegian Cruise Lines just got better! Norwegian Cruise Lines, in February will introduce the Norwegian Getaway with weekly sailings from Miami to the Eastern Caribbean. The Getaway will be the third Norwegian ship with “studio cabins” specifically designed for guests who are travelling solo.
It will join the Norwegian Breakaway, which sails out of New York year round to Bermuda or the Caribbean and the Norwegian Epic. The Epic will sail to the Western Caribbean from Miami. This innovative idea for solo travelers to get the best value for their travel budget with a smaller room adds to the vacation by bringing the solo travelers together.
Not only will solo travelers have a 100 square foot cabin especially designed for them, these very special guests will have a welcome gathering, their own lounge and other ways to meet fellow solo travelers on board. Notice that I am saying “solo travelers”, who will not necessarily be “single travelers”, but people who want to take a cruise and are traveling alone.
The three things I love most about this concept:
There is no single supplement! That means a great savings in comparison to several other ships that charge for two guests in a room, even when only one person is going.
There is a white board in the lounge that guests can use to set up dinner plans, land excursions, night club companions, poker pals, etc.
There are a lot of people who’d like to travel but don’t have a travel buddy. What a great way to meet a travel companion for future travel.
The Getaway will leave South Hampton England in a few days enroute to New York City, where it will do some introductions prior to sailing to its new home in Miami. Once it arrives in Miami, the new year round home of the Getaway, departures each Saturday will take guests on 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruises.
This new ship will also appeal to families because of the endless activities available for all ages. The Haven will appeal to adults and those seeking a luxurious vacation where they will be treated like royalty. For guests who enjoy entertainment, they can look forward to seeing Legally Blonde and kids will love being with Sponge Bob.
Norwegian still offers four and five day sailings from Miami for those who are limited on time or maybe for first time guests who want to understand why 34 million people a year take a cruise.
