The Epic, Norwegian's biggest and newest ship—which made its inaugural sail last week—has staterooms specially designed for single occupancy. The 100-square-foot Epic Studios come with a full-size bed, windows looking into the corridor (but not the other way around, so peeping pervs won't bother you) and a shared lounge for single seafarers only. The best part is that you won't have to pay a single supplement.
· Silversea Cruises
Silversea is warming up to the singles by offering limited solo traveler fares. It's offering a 10 percent single supplement on four voyages and 25 percent on nine other trips, which go everywhere from Barbados to Dubai. The fares aren't great, but it's a start.
· Holland America
If you don't mind bunking with a stranger, try Holland America's Single Partners Program. It pairs you with a fellow lady or fella. Each of you only pays only the per-person, double-occupancy rate. And you won't have to dine alone; you can ask to be seated with other solo cruisers.
