Norwegian Cruise Line To Introduce 1,000 Solo Staterooms

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled plans to introduce nearly 1,000 dedicated solo staterooms across its expansive 19-ship fleet.

Commencing this week, the company will unveil three distinct solo stateroom categories for the very first time: Solo Inside, Solo Oceanview, and Solo Balcony. These options will be available for future sailings starting January 2, 2024. The pricing and availability will vary based on the destination and demand, offering solo travellers a cost-effective alternative to the traditional double occupancy rooms.

David J. Herrera, President, Norwegian Cruise Line, expressed the company’s commitment to providing diverse options for their guests to craft their ideal vacation experience. He noted, “Since the initial launch of our solo staterooms in 2010 aboard the Norwegian Epic, they have been immensely popular among solo travellers. We are constantly attuned to our guests’ preferences to deliver the experiences they desire. Recognising the increasing demand from individuals seeking to travel solo, we have now expanded single occupancy staterooms across our entire fleet.”

Furthermore, guests opting for these new solo stateroom categories will have exclusive access to the Studio Lounge, accessible with their key card, available on select ships. This lounge offers a dedicated space to unwind, a bar stocked with beer and wine, and a variety of daily snacks.

In addition to the dedicated lounge, solo cruisers can engage in specially planned activities designed for single travellers to connect and socialise. With the expansion of solo stateroom categories from nine ships to the entire 19-ship fleet, single cruisers now have more opportunities to visit dream destinations like Asia, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand—destinations not historically associated with this unique offering.

Norwegian Cruise Line made this significant announcement in response to the recent surge in solo travel’s popularity within the tourism industry. The company acknowledged the increasing number of individuals opting for solo journeys, eschewing traditional group travel with friends, family, or partners.
