In a world full of baecations, #couplegoals, and memes about traveling the world with the person you love, being a single traveler can be, well, quite daunting. If you desire a solo-dolo vacation sans the pressures of society, going on a cruise is ideal. You may even meet your future bae!

Colleen McDaniel, the editor-in-chief of Cruise Critic tells Travel + Leisure: “One of the benefits to sailing as a single is cruises are generally social. That’s how they’re designed. If you are somebody who is comfortable traveling by yourself and looks to make new friends on vacation, there is no shortage of people who you are going to meet.”

There are cruises that host parties for its single passengers and have single cabins, making it an all-around positive travel experience.

Here are the best cruises for singles:
