August 18, 2014--From the exotic sights and flavorful tastes, to a relaxed atmosphere and the satisfaction of attaining bucket list dreams, today is highlighting what single travelers can experience on one of the company's signature Mediterranean singles cruises.'s next Mediterranean cruise departs from Southampton, England, September 20, 2014, on a 12-day cruise aboard Royal Caribbean International's Independence of the Seas. The itinerary will focus on destinations throughout the United Kingdom (including Gibraltar), Spain and Portugal. is the United States' largest organizer of singles cruises.

"We've hosted more than 15,000 singles aboard cruise ships over the past two decades and our European cruises definitely have their own distinct 'feel' when compared to our Caribbean sailings. Typically, they attract smaller groups with an age range from 40s to 60s, although it's certainly not limited to that age," said Jody Ryland, Vice President, "Many of them are past guests from one of our Caribbean cruises who loved the camaraderie generated within our group. Those who are new to the idea of singles cruises and who enjoy meeting like-minded travelers, are welcome to join us as we explore Europe."

"The atmosphere within our groups on a Mediterranean cruise is also more relaxed. It's a longer cruise - in this case 12 days - which gives our guests more time to get to know one another. The group bonds over dinner and shares stories about their shore excursions each day. Tours tend to be longer and more expansive than a typical Caribbean beach excursion, which means our clients are up and out early so they can fully explore and enjoy what each unique port of call has to offer," added Ryland.

During this September's Mediterranean cruise, guests of will receive special invitations to exclusive singles activities taking place onboard. They include complimentary cocktail parties and theme nights. Plus, they can participate in shore excursions with other singles (subject to availability). The cruise, plus all of the exclusive activities, is still available for booking by contacting or 800-383-5000.

"One of the highlights of a Mediterranean cruise is definitely the food," said Suzanne Sneddon, the Voyage Host for this sailing, who has been visiting Europe regularly for the past 30 years. "I love the allure and romance of the Mediterranean, and especially the tastes of Iberia. Who wouldn't love a stop at a tapas bar to sample the local delicacies and libations? Or to stroll by restaurants and take in the aromas as chefs are preparing their own special style of Paella that brings such great pride? Try some turrón or flan to satisfy your sweet tooth."

Sneddon also recommended that any traveler to the Mediterranean try to learn a few words in the local languages, thus opening doors and bringing smiles to many faces for the effort. She also noted that a Mediterranean cruise is the perfect way to understand more about the destinations and sites that most people have only read about. "In Barcelona, there is a moment of awe when the Sagrada Familia - Gaudi's iconic Gothic masterpiece - comes into view right in front of you. You see details and colors that you never noticed before. From classic architecture to modern cities and beautiful seaside locations, there is something for everyone. Another stop on this itinerary, Mallorca, is a jet-setter's island paradise."
