While not everyone ventures onboard a singles cruise with the intention of meeting their soul mate, it does happen more frequently than you might think. SinglesCruise.com’s lead cruise host Shelby Bergeron coordinates approximately 20 singles cruises a year and estimates that in addition to the typical four or five marriages that result from a singles cruise pairing each year, at least another 40 to 50 couples start a long-term relationship after the cruise.
While this number may seem slightly insignificant compared to statistics from some popular online dating sites, Bergeron believes meeting someone special in a fun, laid back setting like a singles cruise is better and more authentic than meeting them online because you meet and get to know them face-to-face. She says you can tell right away if you have a spark with another single and focus on getting to know them better throughout the cruise.
“I met my husband Dustin at the pre-cruise party on the 2010 After Thanksgiving singles cruise,” described Victoria. “We were instantly attracted to each other and hit it off right away – even though our first conversation was about politics of all things. We have been inseparable ever since the cruise even though I lived in Chicago and he lived in Indiana. We just got married in December 2011 – on our one year anniversary of meeting each other. The only bad thing about our wedding was that we couldn’t convince some of our cruise friends to come to our wedding because they were all out cruising!”
Another unique benefit to taking a singles cruise is that singles have the opportunity to meet potential love interests from all over the country and even all over the world that they would never have met otherwise. Instead of the tired dinner and movie date, you can get to know your catch while you snorkel, kayak, play beach volleyball or attend a karaoke party.
