As a solo traveler, do you prefer a single room or ask to be paired with a roommate? Why?
In reply to CT_PBW:
CT_PBW I am curious how the solo supplement is calculated. If I book a hotel room for myself or if I book for two people the cost is the same. When I travel with friends we divide the cost of the room in half. So how is sharing a room making a difference? It can't be food, I am not eating twice as much. It can't be transportation, I am only sitting in one seat. So what else is used to calculate the cost difference?
You have the answer there: "When I travel with friends we divide the cost of the room in half." The room has a price. Two people each pay half the price.

i'M LOOKING FOR A FEMALE ROOMMATE FOR TRIP #16429TTC TO MAINE IN OCTOBER. I USUALLY DON'T SPEND MUCH TIME IN THE ROOM OTHER THAN SLEEPING AND SHOWERING. IT'S MUCH NICER BEING OUT OF THE ROOM DOING THINGS.

A single room for all the reasons previously mentioned. I've been on at least 15 RS programs and have always enjoyed them. However, I've recently traveled with another nonprofit organization offering excellent educational tours that never charges a single supplement (and the rooms were the same as those given to "doubles). Therefore, if the itineraries and the prices are comparable, my preference will be to travel with the other company.
