Plus, the next big thing about to hit the shipping world.
More and more travellers are embarking on voyages around the world on their own. Don't take our word for it. Just have a look at the latest news from Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), which is about to introduce nearly 1000 staterooms across its 19-ship fleet dedicated solely to solo travellers.
"Since we first launched our solo staterooms in 2010 with Norwegian Epic, they have been quite popular with single travellers," say NCL president David Herrera. "After realising the growing demand of individuals looking to travel on their own, we have now expanded single occupancy staterooms across our fleet." So if you've been thinking of exploring the power of one at sea, now's your chance.
Meanwhile, if you like to stick with the brood, we have some good news for you, too. Royal Caribbean has just announced the name of its next big thing. Launching in 2025, the new megaship will be called Star of the Seas and will no doubt take family-friendly adventures to a whole new level. Stay tuned.
