    Great Edwin – a charming little ship! (See my review).

    Already booked on Greatest Fjords of Norway, from Rosyth, and we are very much looking forward to it.

    Hi Gillian, there has been an a recognition by cruise lines that single cabins are popular and should be on offer. However I hear that the prices can be quite outrageous.

    Norwegian Epic (a mega-ship) has 130 ‘studio’ single cabins, a record. However they are effectively small ‘inside’ cabins. I believe they have sold them at half the double cabin fare, but not always. Unfair if true!

    NCL’s Breakaway and Breakaway+ plus ships also have more single cabins that most. However, do you want to cruise with 3,000+ people?

    I would recommend Fred 5 night fjords as a brilliant short cruise for wonderful scenery and two contrasting ports in Norway.
    Did it 2016 from Newcastle, great port for northern departures so Rosyth will be a boon to passengers north of the border.
    But! May I raise the thorny question of single supplements? Why is a single cabin, one berth, £400 more than a twin cabin per person? Admittedly, I was lucky last year with a huge cabin but when traveling alone I find the extra expense brochure price outrageous.
