Solo travel: treat yourself to a cruise


Treating yourself to a cruise is no longer reserved for couples or families. The sense of freedom, the comforting and friendly setting for memorable encounters, including with yourself… The advantages are endless for those who travel alone.

1. Set off with peace of mind

Travelling alone requires a certain sense of organisation, and a generous dose of energy! Booking for each stopover hotel, internal transport, local visits and more. So many steps that rest solely on your shoulders. Why not save some time while keeping your spirits light ? By choosing the cruise, you only have one booking to make to enjoy numerous destinations. And rest assured that if something goes awry, you will not be alone. For women who set sail unaccompanied, it can be comforting to be a part of a group trip and to have rewarding encounters. The Canary Islands, Indonesia or Fiji are safe approved destinations. So, put your suitcases down just one time and enjoy the trip wholeheartedly!

2. A trip without add-ons

Today, price is no longer an obstacle standing in the way of a solo cruise. If you book in advance, you will find several offers with favourable rates: single cabins, shared cabins or personal double cabins without surcharge – luxury! Explore the Caribbean, Polynesia or the Mexican peninsula of Yucatan while enjoying the same comfort and services as other cruisers.

3. The luxury of choosing to be alone

Partir pour une croisière en solo ne veut pas dire souffrir des affres de la solitude ou de l’ennui. Entre la beauté des paysages qui défilent sous vos yeux, la contemplation de la mer et les animations et conférences proposées, vous aurez mille expériences à vivre ! Et en plus de votre liberté d’aller et venir à votre guise, vous avez la possibilité de vous isoler, quand vous en ressentez le besoin, sans risquer de froisser ou d’être incompris. Un luxe qu’il est plus difficile de s’autoriser quand on voyage en famille ou entre amis.

4. The chance to socialise

If you are looking for company, you will not stay alone for very long. Some people prefer this type of travel precisely because it allows you to easily form new friendships. At dinner, by getting to know the people sitting on your table, at the buffet by approaching other lone travellers, during themed get-togethers and the group excursions by forging links based on your affinities. Furthermore, not having any obligations or programmes to keep to creates a certain serenity perfect for memorable encounters and the unexpected.

5. (Re)find yourself

Rien de tel pour vous relaxer que le roulis des vagues et l’infini à l’horizon ! Prendre la mer, c’est opter pour un mode de transport doux, choisir d’aller lentement et ré-apprendre à contempler. L’idéal pour s’extraire de l’accélération du temps qui asphyxie notre quotidien. Partir seul en croisière peut également être l’occasion de faire le point, de revenir à soi et à l’essentiel. Dans le silence et face à l’immensité des océans, l’imaginaire peut vagabonder, des pensées inattendues surgir et des émotions lointaines se libérer. Un cadre propice à l’exploration de facettes de soi insoupçonnées.
