Solo cruisers have long suffered the pain of the dreaded “single supplement” — a fee that the cruise lines charge to passengers who sail without a cabin mate. For the most part, solo cruisers have ended up paying almost what they would if there were two people in the cabin….but that is all about to change.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new NCL Epic (launching this summer) features a brand-new concept in cabins — “studio cabins” — which are being aimed specifically at solo cruisers. These 100 square foot cabins have windows that look out into interior corridors, and they are clustered around a central (communal) living space called the Living Room. This social hub is available to all passengers in the studio cabins, and features a lounge, private bar, and two large-screen TVs. Best of all, NCL is offering these cabins at a special single-occupancy price that starts at just $799!
The ship will be sailing alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, and is sure to be a very popular new addition to the cruise line’s portfolio. Give me a call and reserve your cabin today!
