What do ship charge if you don't have "double occupancy"?

I.e. you're travelling by yourself? Do they charge double? Do they usually have a limited selection of single-occupancy rooms that are more expensive but not twice as expensive?

I ask because if I ever run into money and retire comfortably, seeing Europe by going in an ocean liner would be how I would do it. At double occupancy rates it's competitive with first-class airfare. Paying double the going rate, not so much. (As it stands, it's not so much the money issue as the time issue. 7 days is a pretty long time to be stuck in any one place, even if it's a luxurious place with lots to do. But if I had the time it would beat spending slightly more than a day in airports/airplaces and the hassle of limited baggage!)
