According to Shelby Bergeron,’s lead onboard director, the most popular group events tend to be the speed meeting sessions and the dance classes. “These activities offer each of our singles a nice, brief encounter with someone new for a few minutes to break the ice,” said Bergeron. “All of our gatherings both on and off the ship from wine tasting parties to beach volleyball games provide a comfortable setting for all of our guests to be themselves and get to know the others.”

“The singles cruise I vacationed on last year provided me a safe haven where I was able to meet and interact with other people like myself,” said Mauri Share, a past guest. “This was especially great because there was a wonderful variety of personalities in the group which allowed me to find people who I had a lot in common with. The cruise opened up a world of opportunity for me when it came to putting myself out there.”

Bergeron’s number one pointer to the adventurous adults is to be authentic when mingling with the other single guests. “The great part about joining a singles group on vacation is that you are meeting others who typically share your passion for traveling and enjoying new experiences so you already have something in common to talk about!”
