St. Thomas is known as an idyllic vacation spot today, but its history is not so peaceful. In the 18th century, the island was at the center of a bustling pirate culture, as swashbuckling pirates such as Blackbeard and Drake traded stolen wares in the port of Charlotte Amalie. This world-renowned Caribbean island is home to amazing beaches, gorgeous sea and landscapes and unbelievable duty-free shopping.

Thursday October 30, 2014 >> 8am - 5pm Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The island offers endless stretches of beach, beautiful landscapes and great shopping.

Food, food and more food! All of your meals and snacks throughout the day in the main dining areas are included with your singles cruise.

Some ships offer optional gourmet specialty restaurants that charge a nominal fee.

Drinks - There is complimentary fountain water, ice tea, coffee and a small choice of juices available in the buffet area 24 hours/day. Any beverage ordered at the bar such as soda, bottled water, alcohol drinks, juice and specialty coffees are an additional fee. Most cruise lines now offer inclusive bar packages that will include beer, wine and soda for an upfront fee of approximately $45 per day. Please inquire with our team for details whether this option is available on your singles cruise. One small caveat: everyone in your stateroom must order the beverage package in order for you to be eligible to purchase it.

Taxes/Port Fees - SinglesCruise.com includes all of these excess fees in our final pricing so there are no surprises. Taxes and port fees are a large percentage of the cruise cost and many travel agencies will charge them separately.

Not Included: Gratuities for the ships staff. Most cruise lines add approximately $12/day per person to your onboard cruise bill which is split up between your room attendant, dining room servers and those hard-working behind-the-scenes employees who making sure the buffet is full at all times. It is customary, but voluntary, to tip your state room steward and waiter extra in cash if you feel their service was exceptional.

What are the ages of the other singles onboard?

Most of our singles cruises are open to singles of all ages 21 years and above with the majority of people in any group usually falling somewhere between 35 to 55 years old. Of course, there will be singles younger than 35 as well as over 55, so don’t let those statistics stop you!

What are the average men to women ratios on the singles cruises?

Most of our typical singles cruises are very close to a 50/50 ratio which is what we strive for and again will ultimately depend on who signs up for any particular cruise. We will do our best to get equal numbers of the opposite sex to join all cruises, however this cannot be guaranteed. No matter who ends up in your group, you are sure to make new friends and have the time of your life!

Is the entire ship single travelers?

No, the entire ship is not all single travelers. Although our groups typically have quite a large presence onboard the ships, there are still other "non-single" travelers onboard.

What types of singles cruise with SinglesCruise.com?

Singles who travel with SinglesCruise come from all over the US and even around the world. Some of our guests are looking to make a romantic connection, others are interested in having fun and meeting new friends and many don't like traveling alone and enjoy being part of our large groups.

Are the SinglesCruise.com activities open to any singles onboard the ship?

No, singles must book with SinglesCruise to take advantage of our exclusive onboard program.

Do you match singles with roommates? What if I prefer my own room?

We do match singles with roommates of the same gender and similar age (whenever possible) at no additional charge. Booking early will help ensure that you are matched with someone close to your age but this cannot be guaranteed. This complimentary matching service saves our guests money by allowing them to take advantage of the shared (double) occupancy cabin rate. This service is available in most standard cabin categories but not available for suites. If a single prefers to room alone, we can provide rates on single occupancy cabins.

Our goal with our complimentary roommate matching program is to help foster the development of new friendships during your singles cruise and offer you the opportunity to save money by avoiding any single supplement charges imposed by the cruise lines for single cabins.

Please note that SinglesCruise.com accepts no responsibility for roommate matching incompatibility such as sleep patterns, snoring, noise, or age differences. If you are concerned that any of these disparities may be an issue affecting the enjoyment of your vacation, we recommend you purchase a single cabin or better yet - bring a friend along who may also enjoy a singles cruise!

SinglesCruise will match clients of the same gender to share a cabin, and it will try to match roommates based on age similarity, although this is not a guarantee. SinglesCruise does not conduct any type of background checks on it clients in general, and specifically does not conduct background checks on matching a client with another in a roommate situation.

SinglesCruise makes no representations or warranties regarding compatibility between roommates. Our roommate matching is strictly for non-smokers - this is for the comfort of all our roommate matches, and it relies on the honor system at booking and common courtesy while onboard. Even if you don’t consider yourself a regular smoker, if you do choose to smoke during the cruise, then you will not have the option of using our roommate matching on any future cruises.

Under no circumstances will SinglesCruise be liable for any damages whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, general, special, compensatory, consequential, and/or incidental arising out of or relating to the conduct of any client or guest action or interaction between clients or guests, including without limitation bodily injury, emotional distress, harassment, and defamation.

Can I book shore excursions through SinglesCruise.com?

Yes, SinglesCruise.com offers optional shore excursions for our group. Shore excursions are guided tours or adventures in a cruise ship's port of call. We will provide information and booking instructions on these excursions approximately 60 days prior to each cruise. You may also purchase shore excursions directly with the cruise lines through their own Shore Excursion Desk.

Can we meet any of the singles on our cruise before we depart?

Yes, you will be given access to a private Facebook page to communicate with and get to know other singles on your single cruises. We typically hold an optional pre-cruise meet and greet and arrange a pre-cruise hotel in the port city the night before the cruise departs to welcome all of our singles and begin the fun! Ask our cruise specialists for the pre-cruise details after your booking is completed.

Do I need a passport?

Yes

How do I obtain a passport?

United States citizens can visit the State Department's travel website www.travel.state.gov, or call the U.S. National Passport Information Center: 1-877-4USA-PPT; TDD/TTY: 1-888-874-7793.

What should I pack?

Daytime calls for casual clothing, and the dress code for the evenings includes anything from casual resort wear to a sport coat and tie. Remember, jeans, shorts and t-shirts are never permitted in the dining room during dinner. Each cruise generally has one or two formal nights onboard the ship where passengers get decked out in party dresses, evening gowns, suits or tuxedos. Don't forget to pack your special outfits for the SinglesCruise.com theme nights (you will receive a description of your cruise theme nights prior to departure).

When can we board the ship?

Embarkation normally begins three to four hours before the cruise departure time (see your cruise documents for details).

Many cruise lines allow you to bring a bottle of wine/champagne on board on embarkation day as long as it is in your carry-on luggage, we suggest researching their website for more information. Any alcohol purchased on board or in port will be held until you disembark the vessel. Most cruise lines allow you to bring a small amount (approximately 12 small bottles) of non-alcoholic beverages such as water or soda.
