Dash around the world: with South Florida singles


By: Joel Dash Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers
Dash Travel has been a gathering point for singles since it was established in New York in 1959 and has continued its singles involvement since relocation to Delray Beach.
Just stroll down Atlantic Avenue any evening and you will see bars and restaurants full of singles. Is it any wonder that our hotels and beach are filled with visitors who are here to experience why Delray was voted No. 1 Most Fun Small Town in the United States?
Singles travel is unique in that it involves groups of every age: singles to meet their first love, singles show are parents without partners and mature singles who have lost their partners, adventure and sightseeing tours and resort vacations.
Singles have one disadvantage when they travel. They are usually paying 200 percent of the cost of a cabin on a ship or a room in a hotel. Some destinations cater to singles and it becomes our job to match you with hotels that cater to singles.
Cruise companies are becoming more aware of singles needs and the new builds have smaller cabins just for singles. NCL has a singles area with 128 single cabins with their own singles lounge and singles rates, so you don’t have to pay for a double cabin. Luxury cruise line Silver Seas has a singles rate reduced to 110 percent. Cruise lines often offer cruise hosts to dance with the singles during events.
Dash Travel has “matched ip” with Steve Fox Social to create singles trips. Steve has been promoting monthly single events in South Florida and New York for 27 years. A recent event in Boca Raton drew 500 singles.
Steve Fox Social And Dash Travel Are combining on Oct. 15, for a 2-night Singles Cruise to Freeport, Bahamas on The Grand Celebration, which is sailing from the Port of Palm Beach .
It costs $169 per person based on double occupancy for an inside cabin and $189 per person for an ocean view. An additional $61.78 will be added on.
An optional two night stay is available at The Grand Lucayan Hotel.
