I’ve been in the ships and see the same regulars that book together and continue to cruise together after meeting on the ship. You never have to eat or go to shows or in excursions alone. I was actually surprised at the demographics that book those cabins. I thought it would all be people in their 20’s- not so. Most are 40’s abs older. NCL is often the first line that tries something and others follow. Remember they started the “anytime dining” program and I still remember at a travel agent class asking an Executive from Royal Caribbean why they didn’t offer it and back then (at least 15 years ago) was told “We’ll never offer that. Our consumers want fixed dining times”.

So much for never.
Back from my cruise and met up with a great group of people in the Studio Lounge. And since I'm already booked in another studio on the Breakaway next year, mentioned it to the group and will likely get several of them to join up! The awesome thing about the Epic Studio Lounge is they have a bartender from 5-7 pm to help facilitate the gathering and loosen people up!

What a great response - and you are absolutely correct in how you described this.

Totally agree, @dgyland and @Neil Maley . This is a terrific way to think about double cabins being sold to a single. I am, however, pleased that some of the newer ships have dedicated single cabins at affordable rates ...

We also recently learned of an English river cruise line, Riviera, that has dedicated dates for waiving the single supplements.
