New research has revealed that cruise is becoming a more popular choice of holiday for solo travellers.

The survey – organised by cruise specialist and completed by 800 people – found that more than two thirds of those questioned (70 per cent) would choose a cruise over a land-based holiday for a solo trip.

Meanwhile, 40 per cent of those of employment age would consider taking their job on board while remote working, providing a “unique and convenient way to combine work with solo travel”, according to a statement.

When it comes to destinations, sailing from the UK to Europe was the preferred choice for single cruisers, with more than half of respondents selecting this option.

The Caribbean came in second place, with 32 per cent.

Cruise ‘safe and convenient’ for solo travellers managing director Tony Andrews said: “It’s clear that cruising is becoming an increasingly popular option for solo travellers, offering a convenient and safe way to explore the world.

“Cruises provide so much on board through their entertainment, spa facilities and restaurant choices.

“When combined with the ability to see multiple destinations, in the safety and comfort of a cruise ship, it’s clear why a holiday at sea is the preferred choice for solo travel.

“The number of people considering remote working when on board clearly demonstrates the flexibility a cruise can offer.”
