2014 Halloween Singles Cruise

Halloween 2014 on Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas certainly delivered! It was one of the best Halloween cruises we have ever had on arguably the most magnificent ship in the world!

Nearly 400 singles came out to play this year, and had fantastic activities planned throughout the week. Crowd favorites were Battle of the Sexes and our NEW Singles Search Late Night Game Show! We had so many laughs while teams battled one another in an adult scavenger hunt like no other! It was truly the best event we’ve ever had…absolutely hilarious! Thank you to all who participated – you know who you are!

Our Hawaiian Pool Party was an absolute blast and I LOVED all the grass skirts; it truly was a luau that would be difficult to top, with tropical drinks enjoyed ocean-side in the open air. The weather was great and we had delightful days touring in Nassau (Bahama) on the catamaran, going to Magens Bay in St. Thomas and enjoying the liquid sunshine in St. Maarten! Of course what made it best of all was the wonderful camaraderie shared by all of our single travelers. It was a fantastic cruise.

Everyone was SO excited to hear about our Halloween 2015 itinerary, so for those who haven’t heard, I think we’re going to take over the Carnival Conquest for Halloween 2015! I can’t wait to do it again…thank you for joining us on the largest cruise ship in the world for the best singles cruise on the planet!

Your Lead Cruise Director,


4-Night Club Med Singles Caribbean Resort

This was a historic trip as brought more than 100 guests to a stunning Caribbean resort!

By the time I reached Club Med Turkoise in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, our party had already begun with several of our guests having already arrived a day or two prior. But once Thursday hit – the official start of our 4-night getaway – Club Med really knew we had “arrived.” Case in point? Suddenly the pool and beach became a lot livelier!

Club Med greets all guests on arrival and gives each one a quick tour on the way to their room, although it was hard to take my eyes off the brilliant blue ocean water the area is famous for.

Once settled in, it was time for our welcome party at Sharkie’s Bar, right on the beach. Most of our 100+ guests came by to pick up our special ID beads, dance, reconnect, and make new friends. From there, we enjoyed the hospitality of the Pool Bar and our own section of the dining room buffet area where kept the conversations going. The night ended in one of Club Med’s nightly themed shows and then a tiki beach party right back at Sharkie’s where most of us kicked off our shoes and danced in the sand.

On Friday, many of us met back for breakfast buffet and got our day going, whether that meant tennis, snorkeling, beach or pool volleyball (the latter of which we pretty much took over for most of the week…well at least Dan did, with his patented look-away serve!). Some of our group even braved the trapeze. That afternoon, 50 of us left Club Med to take in an amazing sunset tour on a large sailboat, on which our hosts treated us to Caribbean hospitality, tunes, and rum punch. Many of us were back out after dinner for our White Night, dancing and taking in the Club Med show by the Blue Reef Bar, where even a quick tropical downpour couldn’t dampen spirits.

Saturday, most of us spent the day on the beach, in the ocean, or in the swimming pool, and even though we got some Caribbean liquid sunshine, we were soon back out enjoying all the watersports Club Med had to offer. After live music at Sharkie’s, many of us dressed up for Resort Elegant night, and I heard some people even dressed down again at an impromptu beach/pool party well into the evening.

Sunday was perhaps our most casual day at Club Med as many of us wanted to enjoy more beach and pool time. About 30 people in our group ended up spending some time at the Conch Shack Sunday afternoon, before heading back for our farewell party at Sharkie’s. We danced, some kept playing beach volleyball, and others chatted, reminiscing on a great Labor Day trip to Club Med.

While most of us left Monday, many stayed to enjoy more sun and sand. Regardless, everyone left with great memories of their time along the turquoise blue ocean.

We thank everyone who took the time to be a part of this momentous trip!

Your Host,
