Travel solo, but not alone

These days travelling solo is becoming more and more popular, whether guests are travelling with a larger group or with a friend and need their own space; or if they are simply just taking some time out for themselves, there are plenty of options to choose from when selecting a cruise.

Many cruise lines are responding to this growing market segment and are investing in ways to better cater to solo travellers. A number of cruise lines including Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Coral Expeditions and Riviera River Cruises have now added solo cabins to new and existing ships.

Other cruise lines such as Silversea, Azamara, Ponant, Paul Gauguin, Regent Seven Seas and Oceania Cruises offer either zero or low single supplement promotions. Quark Expeditions offers a Request-Share program matching solo travellers of the same gender who indicate they are willing to share cabin to save the single supplement.
