Holland America caters to solo cruisers with its Single Partners Program. The program pairs single guests with another nonsmoking guest of the same sex in a stateroom and each pays only the per-person, double-occupancy rate. And if the program can't match you with a partner, you cruise solo at the agreed-upon double-occupancy fare. Plus, you can request to sit with singles at dinner or hang with other solo cruisers in cooking and dance classes.
To be clear, many of the family-oriented cruise ship lines differentiate between a solo cruiser who is traveling alone and a single who comes aboard ready to mingle and get lucky. If you fall into the latter category, that's a whole different type of cruise entirely.
