New research by cruise.co.uk has revealed that solo travellers prefer a sea escape.
The survey, completed by 800 people, found that over two-thirds of those questioned (70%) would choose a cruise over a land-based holiday for a solo trip.
Meanwhile, 40% of those of employment age would consider taking their job onboard whilst remote working.
Sailing from the UK to Europe was the preferred choice for single cruisers, with over half of respondents selecting this option. The Caribbean came in second place, with 32% opting for sunnier sailings.
Tony Andrews, cruise.co.uk Managing Director, 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 onboard 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.
“And the number of people considering remote working when onboard, clearly demonstrates the flexibility a cruise can offer.”
