Solo Travel News - September 3, 2016

With so many solo travellers looking for affordable ways to travel, without the dreaded single supplement, I am always watching for specials. Periodically, when I have time, I summarize a few into an email to send to those who may be interested.


Solo Balcony Stateroom (category SB)
This week I have been assisting a solo cruiser book some lovely new solo occupancy cabins on the Ovation of the Seas, with no single supplement. This lovely new Royal Caribbean ship (4 months old) has 2 categories of single occupancy cabins onboard. Check these out:

Super Studio Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (category SB) - available on the Anthem of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas

Studio Interior Virtual View Stateroom (category SI) - available on the Anthem of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas, and the Quantum of the Seas

Studio "Virtual View" Stateroom (category SI)
As a rule, solo cabins sell out quickly, so it's worth booking early. Add to that a solo special right now, and these Asia sailings on the Ovation of the Seas are worth a closer look if you are planning a trip to the region:

March 29, 2017: 5 nights, roundtrip Singapore: $896 CAD solo balcony

April 10, 2017: 4 nights, roundtrip Singapore: $812 solo balcony

February 18, 2018 - 8 nights, roundtrip Sydney: $1347 CAD solo inside / $2137 CAD solo

April 14, 2018: 12 nights, Singapore to Beijing: $1810 CAD solo inside / $2403 CAD solo balcony

Plus taxes/fees


Maui rainbow with Palm Tree (461764690) I've yet to meet anyone who hasn't liked Hawaii, and I have to agree, so it's often on the top of my solo travel destinations.

Here are a few Hawaii sailings within reach of the solo traveller's budget:

September 24, 2016: 15 nights, Vancouver roundtrip to Hawaii, on the Star Princess - $2836 CAD solo inside

September 25, 2016: 10 nights, Vancouver to Honolulu on the Noordam - $1195 CAD solo inside

September 13, 2018: 11 nights, Vancouver to Honolulu on the Carnival Legend - $2615 CAD solo inside

Plus taxes/fees

If you are interested in a Danube River cruise from Prague to Budapest, a colleague of mine is organizing an Avalon Waterways sailing on April 15, 2017, and is willing to match up solo travellers who want a cabin mate. There are also a few solo cabins available.

That's it for this time around. I hope you find the information valuable!
Remember that prices and availability are subject to change. If you see something you like, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Looking for something else? While reduced or waived single supplements are hard to find, they do exist, and I can help you find them. A few ships also offer solo staterooms, with no single supplement. I can also assist with tours and land vacations for solos.
