How do I find someone to travel with me to avoid single supplement?

Recommended Posts

Is there a website where solo travelers can meet to pair up to share a room so we do not have to pay double the per person rate? I am sure there are many people that would be interested in going on a cruise, but most people do not want to pay double (especially when the additional amount is in the thousands).

Subscribing as my DMIL has this same issue.  However, I suspect she would be hesitant to be roomies with a stranger. I’ve been trying to convince her to go solo on a local bus tour or something so perhaps she would meet others in the same situation. Of course it would just be easier if her boytoy liked to travel! 😂

You might want to post this on the 55+ board too.

Ask your friends and co-workers.

That way, you could meet the person before the cruise. 

Not many people want to share a cabin with a stranger.

Why not look around in here?

 

 

Welcome to Cruise Critic Karina007!  It is against Cruise Critic Community Guidelines to post ads looking for roommates. (See below) The other website suggestions might work, but I am one of many who would never consider rooming with a stranger.  I love cruising solo!  Good luck and happy cruising!

While soliciting for a roommate may be against CC guidelines, I don't read the OP post as an ad looking for a roommate.  I read it as asking where or how to look for a roommate.  Just my opinion.

Maybe so but it was kind of oakridge to let a newbie know of the policy, before they run afoul of it.

I would ask leaders of any religious or social groups you are affiliated with. Clergy are periodically asked for help matching roommates for travel.
