In response to growing demand from solo cruisers, Norwegian Cruise Line is more than doubling the capacity of solo accommodations across its fleet, starting Jan. 2, 2024. That's the addition of nearly 1,000 dedicated solo staterooms across 19 ships in three new room categories.
Beginning this week, NCL will open for sale three new solo stateroom categories – Solo Inside, Solo Oceanview, and Solo Balcony – for sailings starting Jan. 2, 2024. Though pricing is dependent on availability, destination, and demand, the line said solo travelers can expect to pay less than a traditional double occupancy room.
"Since we first launched our solo staterooms in 2010 with Norwegian Epic, they have been quite popular with single travelers," said David J. Herrera. "After realizing the growing of individuals looking to travel on their own, we have now expanded single occupancy staterooms across our fleet."
Guests who stay in the any of the solo stateroom categories also have access to the key-card entry only Studio Lounge, available on select ships. The Studio Lounge features a dedicated space for solo travelers to socialize and is equipped with a bar offering beer and wine and a variety of snacks served daily.
