The company will offer new events and activities for their single guests onboard the luxury sailing.

Fort Lauderdale, FL, March 23, 2007 --( is responding to the increasing demand of travelers desiring an upscale sea adventure by hosting a singles group onboard a sailing to the Baltic this summer on sister company Regent Seven Seas Cruise. The program will feature a variety of new events and activities for the single adults setting sail on the seven night Northern European cruise on July 28, 2007.

“Many singles have requested that we add more luxury offerings to our annual lineup of hosted cruises,” said Steven Hattem, Director of Carlson-owned According to a March 2006 Mintel report on Singles and Travel (Attitudes and Behavior), many singles between the ages of 35-65 maintain active lifestyles and enjoy greater than average financial resources. The report also states that as more Baby Boomers (currently aged between 43 and 61) become empty nesters, they will likely spend more on travel and do so with greater freedom. “These unmarried travelers want to enjoy a premium vacation while having the opportunity to meet new friends to share it with,” added Hattem.

Along with having instant companions to explore the European cities with, the SinglesCruise guests will participate in private meet and greet gatherings on and off the ship aimed at getting to know one another better. These social events will be hosted by SinglesCruise program directors and will include cocktail parties, food and wine tastings, dance lessons, lectures, games and tours.

“In addition to selecting our program’s free roommate matching option on this voyage, singles can also choose to occupy a single cabin at an affordable rate that is only 25% higher than sharing a cabin,” said Hattem. “This special single supplement price is truly a great bargain for having a cabin to yourself on such a deluxe ship as the all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager.” is hosting their program on a variety of other adventuresome cruises this summer ranging from a seven-night jaunt to Alaska to a 12-night journey through the Mediterranean and Greek Isles.
