SinglesCruise.com Unveils New Online Community for Single Travelers
It’s Not Just About the Cruise…It’s About the People
November 7, 2014-- Today, SinglesCruise.com officially announced the launch of a new online community for single travelers, including both guests who have already booked cruises and individuals who want to learn more about group cruising with other singles. The site, called “SinglesCruise Community,” found at social.singlescruise.com, is a multi-faceted online community with live chat capabilities; discussion groups focused on specific, upcoming SinglesCruise.com sailings; informational resources and more. SinglesCruise.com launched the community in October and is inviting all single travelers to join. SinglesCruise.com is America’s largest provider of hosted singles cruises.
“SinglesCruise Community was created to enable our guests to make connections and build friendships before they even step foot aboard their cruise ship,” said Jody Ryland, Vice President, SinglesCruise.com. “When you’re on a SinglesCruise.com voyage, you quickly learn that it’s not just about the cruise…it’s about the people – from our dedicated hosts who travel with the group, to our many returning guests who enjoy welcoming new single cruisers. SinglesCruise Community is the place where it all begins.”
Some of the most notable features of SinglesCruise Community include:
- Groups: Clients for each upcoming SinglesCruise.com voyage receive an exclusive invitation to join the private group for their sailing. Here, they can upload a profile photo, post questions or start discussions regarding that sailing and begin getting to know the other SinglesCruise.com guests. While these groups are private, there is also a public group open to all single travelers called, “All Single Cruisers, Past, Present and Future,” in which anyone interested in a singles cruise may participate in discussions or ask questions of the group.
- Chat: The live chat function is also open to all single travelers, regardless of whether they are currently booked on a SinglesCruise.com voyage. Any member of the community can launch a live chat. “During a recent live chat discussing our upcoming New Year’s singles cruise, participants were so excited to talk about how they plan to ring in the New Year aboard our cruise that the chat lasted for two and a half hours,” added Ryland.
- Blog: This section highlights many popular questions and topics among single travelers. Recent blog posts include, “Top Misconceptions of a SinglesCruise.com Sailing,” “Top Three Questions New Cruisers Have,” and “Shelby’s Fabulous Packing List,” all written by Shelby Bergeron, SinglesCruise.com’s acclaimed Lead Cruise Director, who personally hosts SinglesCruise.com voyages throughout the year.
“The primary difference between our site and other online single communities is that this is exclusively devoted to those who want to discuss their passion for travel with other solo travelers,” said Ryland. “It is not a dating site – this is first and foremost a singles travel site.”
“Our SinglesCruise Community replaces a longtime SinglesCruise.com private message board. The previous online forum was very popular, but there are so many more opportunities for our cruisers to interact on this site – the feedback is already overwhelmingly positive,” explained Ryland. “Because we are so invested in our clients and their experiences, as well as in any individual interested in learning more about solo travel, we want to make sure they are completely comfortable in their decision to join our singles on a SinglesCruise.com sailing – so much so that we invite them to interact with past and present clients before they even decide to book.”
SinglesCruise.com also maintains an active presence on Facebook. Its Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/singlescruise, and it also has a Facebook group open to the public called “SinglesCruise.com Friends.”
