SinglesCruise.com Invites Singles to "Get to Know" their 40-Plus Cruisers
Upcoming April Sailing Will Be Geared Toward 40-Plus Age Group
March 5, 2014 -- SinglesCruise.com, the United States' largest organizer of hosted singles cruises, is announcing details of its popular cruise aimed at travelers who are 40 and over, departing from Miami, FL, on April 5, 2014. Taking place aboard Celebrity Cruises' newest ship, Celebrity Reflection, the cruise will offer an opportunity for this growing segment of travelers to sail aboard one of the industry's most sophisticated ships. In addition, SinglesCruise.com is also revealing details about the "average" 40-plus singles cruiser.
"Last year we had approximately 130 guests on each of our two sailings specifically for travelers age 40 and above. Because they were so popular with our clients, we knew we would be adding more opportunities in 2014," stated Jody Ryland, Vice President, SinglesCruise.com. "As we prepare for our upcoming cruise aboard Celebrity Reflection, we know this cruise will have a nice variety of cruisers ranging in age from 40-70, with the greatest concentration being those in their 50s, followed by those in their 60s."
Ryland added that while the vast majority of the SinglesCruise.com guests are from the United States, this April's sailing geared toward singles 40-plus also includes travelers from countries such as Australia, Canada and Colombia. The top five states represented by guests on the upcoming SinglesCruise.com sailing include: (1) Florida, (2) New York, (3) Texas, (4) Illinois, and (5) Ohio. It should be noted that space is still available for those interested in the upcoming age-specific sailing.
David Brasington is a frequent SinglesCruise.com guest and explained why the 40-plus cruise is especially appealing to him: "I'm 56, and I like being with people my own age. I'm going on the upcoming Celebrity Reflection cruise, because I really like that ship. I have a great time every time I've gone on 40-plus or all-ages cruises."
As Brasington noted, another facet of this cruise that sets it apart from other SinglesCruise.com sailings is the ship itself. Celebrity Cruises, as a "premium" cruise line, offers guests a "step above" in terms of cuisine, furnishings and overall service. Celebrity Reflection will sail an Eastern Caribbean itinerary that includes San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. Cruisers will also enjoy three full days at sea to indulge in ship amenities such as the ship's craft beer lounge, its open-air "Lawn Club Grill," or the spa innovations at the enhanced AquaSpa® by Elemis®.
SinglesCruise.com sailings are not charters, meaning there will be other paying passengers aboard. However, SinglesCruise.com provides its guests with a significant number of exclusive "members only" events throughout the 7-day sailing. Perks and events for SinglesCruise.com guests include:
- Friendly, experienced cruise hosts who lead special onboard events and ensure that all SinglesCruise.com guests feel welcome.
- A complete schedule of exclusive activities including: cocktail parties, group dining, theme nights, dance lessons, speed meeting, karaoke parties and more.
- Specially-chosen shore excursions that interest the single traveler. These are available at an additional cost at competitive rates.
- Complimentary roommate matching. Upon request, SinglesCruise.com will assign guests a same-gender roommate to avoid the single supplement that solo cruisers typically have to pay.
- Private online message boards and social media groups for singles to connect before their cruise and to keep friendships blooming after they return home.
"What this means for our guests is that from the moment they step aboard, they will be ensconced by a feeling that they belong. They will truly feel like part of the group as they enter our members-only events, which take place from morning until night," added Ryland. "Plus, throughout their daily activities aboard the ship, they will see that Celebrity Reflection appeals to a mature, yet modern and hip traveler who wants a taste of fine cuisine, unique amenities and best of all, who wants to be with like-minded travelers who are excited to explore the world."
SinglesCruise.com has 11 sailings scheduled for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015 with more to come. Its most popular voyage each year is the Halloween cruise, which often welcomes more than 500 guests. While most SinglesCruise.com trips are designated as for all adults regardless of age, certain cruises are aimed at specific age groups. SinglesCruise.com is also hosting its first land-based vacation later this year – a 4-night getaway to Club Med Turkoise, Turks and Caicos.<< Back To List
