Who Chooses an Adults-Only Cruise?

As the kids get ready to go back to school, the team at Iglu Cruise reveals:

  1. There has been a significant increase in demand comparing 2023 vs 2019 (+45%) for adults-only cruises, due to the growth in availability of such options with cruise lines such as Virgin Voyages and Marella Cruises.

  2. Most adults-only cruisers travel as couples rather than solo or in groups

  3. The majority of our cruisers still travel without kids, despite the huge growth in family cruises

According to customer feedback, the top 10 benefits of an adults-only cruise are cited as:

  1. A sense of calm 

  2. Enjoying adult company

  3. More suitable entertainment

  4. Amenities on board are more adult appropriate – no kids clubs or mini discos

  5. Luxury culinary experiences

  6. Romantic vibes

  7. No dive-bombing in the pool 

  8. No queues for the ice-cream

  9. No wear and tear  

  10. Better access to pools and activities
