Solo travel is one of 2020’s buzz phrases, and that includes cruising. It’s a great way to see the world and make new friends along the way. As more and more travelers hit the cruise ships alone, safety is an ever-present concern. The following tips can help make sure your high seas adventure doesn’t end up a nightmare.
When planning shore activities, be sure to only book excursions sponsored through your cruise line. That way you will know your experience is arranged with a trusted tour organizer and it is likely there will be other passengers from your ship on the excursion with you.
Make sure someone back home is familiar with your itinerary. While you may not be able to check in daily, do so when you can.
Remember the cruise ship is full of crewmembers there to help you. If you ever find yourself feeling uncomfortable, don’t hesitate to ask a crewmember to walk you back to your cabin. Trust your instincts and listen to your gut. If a situation or another passenger is making you feel uncomfortable, remove yourself from the situation as soon as possible.
With a few basic safety measures, there is no reason solo travelers shouldn’t get to enjoy all the fun cruise ships have to offer.
