Single sailors

AS THE demand for cruising holidays continues, the adventure-cruise line, Ocean Village, has announced that it is to cater for single parents on its liners from next year.

Ocean Village 2 will begin service next April, with 100 three-berth cabins reserved for one parent and two children. Ocean Village says that single parents apart, research by Mintel indicates that work pressures are increasingly forcing one parent to take children on holiday, while the other stays in the office, so their three-bed cabins and activity packed cruises are an ideal solution.
