Tired of paying solo cruise supplements? At last, a solution.

Solo travellers often get asked to share rooms or a cabins with complete strangers, or are forced to pay hefty single supplements. 

Riviera Travel has come to the rescue of solo voyagers by increasing its solo-river cruise offering for 2019. All cabins covered the by deal are for sole occupancy with no single supplement – potentially saving saving customers thousands of dollars. 


The British-based river cruise company has added four European river cruise itineraries reserved exclusively for solo travellers.

* A seven-night, round-trip cruise from Porto along the Douro River in Portugal from March 31, 2019
* Two seven-night, round-trip cruises from Budapest on the Danube River departing April 1 and October 28, 2019
* A seven-night cruise on the Rhone and Saone Rivers from Lyon to Avignon in France on October 31, 2019.


The two spring sailings next March and April will coincide with the start of the summer cruise season.

Riviera Travel’s International Sales Manager, Thomas Morgan, said solo cruises address a gap in the market for people who wish to enjoy a river cruise but are travelling on their own or simply prefer to have a cabin to themselves.

“We know solo travellers enjoy our river cruises and to meet growing demand, we have upped the number of cruise itineraries exclusively for solo travellers to four in 2019,” Morgan said. “Our five-star ships provide the perfect base and our itineraries offer opportunities to share wonderful experiences with like-minded travellers. 

"The cruises have been planned for spring and autumn, 2019, when the destinations visited will be more relaxed so customers don’t have to jostle with the summer crowds They can choose any cabin or suite on each ship and there will be no additional single supplement to pay whatsoever.”

Fares start at $2769, are subject to availability and include daily visits and guided excursions, all on-board meals, wifi and the services of a Riviera Travel cruise director and tour manager.
