Cruises for solo travellers

For those who travel solo, few holidays offer as much choice as a cruise. If you are outgoing, there’s always someone to talk to; if you want privacy, you can be as sociable as you wish. And there will always be somewhere to see or something to do. If you'd like to receive the latest news and solo offers from the world's best cruise lines, as well as access to exclusive Mundy solo traveller events, then make sure you sign up to our Independent Travellers Club:

Our insight

Cruising for single travellers

Solo travel is a cause we champion at Mundy, lobbying for the best deals and a great onboard experience. We also carried out extensive research into the needs and preferences of our solo travellers and this resulted in a package of Mundy benefits, tailored to the needs of those who travel alone.

We have special events at our offices in Central London, a dedicated mailing list for offers and opportunities, and in-depth information about the best facilities to help you choose the perfect cruise line. (Whilst a cruise holiday may be perfect for solos, the right choice of ship can make a big difference). And because one of the pains of travelling alone is getting to your destination, we can provide all sorts of add-ons to make your travel experience easier, such as airport assistance, luggage forwarding, and private transfers and guides.

Some solo travellers prefer the flexibility of all-inclusive ships, taking away the embarrassment of returning the generosity of others over drinks, and that fuss about who will pick up the tab for wine at dinner. Open seating can be the perfect way to meet people, or you may prefer the opportunity to build relationships with fellow guests at fixed tables. You can also pick themed cruises for joint activities with like-minded individuals, to get to know others more easily.

So if you want the very best solo experience, call us and we can let you know which cruise lines currently give the best welcome to single guests: special cocktail parties, hosted tables and attractive fares are all indicators!

Cruise Lines

The best cruise lines for single travellers

Crystal Cruises

Crystal's recent expansion has proceeded at a dizzying pace, with the launch of four brand new river yachts and a polar-class expedition yacht. Also on the horizon are a trio of Crystal Diamond Class ocean vessels, joining the recently reimagined medium-size ships, Symphony and Serenity.


Silversea brings a personal touch and Italian style to the hospitality on board, with a truly cosmopolitan and sophisticated passenger mix which provides a stimulating onboard experience.


Choose from a range of engaging and immersive sailings, on board luxurious vessels that accommodate between 28 and 196 guests. Itineraries include all of Europe’s most popular rivers, as well as Asian voyages in Vietnam and Cambodia, and a particularly special cruise in Africa on the Chobe River.

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

The four small to medium sized Fred. Olsen ships have the quirky style of classic vessels, with an intimate British atmosphere that is cosy and inviting. For great itineraries, local departures, good value and an unpretentious style, Fred.’s your man.

Tauck River Cruising

Whilst Tauck operate a worldwide programme of tours and trips for people of all tastes and ages, both ashore and afloat, our focus at Mundy is on their very special European river programme, which offers luxury river cruise holidays for discerning passengers.

Hebridean Island Cruises

This is a truly unique way to experience Scotland. The unpretentious little Hebridean Princess, inextricably linked to the Western Isles, is loved by all who sail on her - even Her Majesty is a fan! - while the recently acquired Lord of the Highlands brings the same intimacy and charm to the inland waters of the Caledonian Canal.

Saga Cruises

Specialising in travel for the over 50s, Saga's small ships operate appealing itineraries, many of them departing from UK ports. Totally focused on the needs of their predominantly British clients, they include a host of extras such as a chauffeur service to the port and even travel insurance at no extra cost.

What our clients say

“I have been cruising since 1980 and find Mundy the best cruise specialists, they know the vessels they are recommending and listen to what you want.”
