1. Uniworld River Cruises - Venice & the Jewels of Veneto
The city of Venice is like no other, and Uniworld's 7-night Venice & the Jewels of Veneto river cruise sailing round-trip from Venice on 6 August 2023 on board the beautiful S.S. La Venezia is the perfect way to experience this iconic city. Uniworld are currently waiving the single supplement on a number of select departures, with the 6 August sailing offering a particularly appealing lead-in fare. You'll experience the cultural treasures of the city, from St Marks to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, as well as visit the 'miniature Venice' island of Chioggia.
Travel among France's treasures on this river cruise on board 144-guest AmaDante that will delight culture vultures, departing Paris on 14 October 2023. Highlights include the chance to visit Monet's gardens in Giverny, the atmospheric Medieval quarter in Rouen, and UNESCO-listed Le Havre, where your 7-night cruise ends. With a waived single supplement on select ships in Europe - such as AmaDante - with specially-designed single occupancy staterooms with French balconies, this is a great opportunity for solo travellers to experience one of the best river cruise lines in the business.
3. Tauck River Cruises - The Blue Danube
Tauck don't charge a single supplement for category 1 cabins on any of their European river cruises, and we think that the 31 May 2024 voyage along the Danube on board the ms Joy looks particularly appealing. Enjoy a two-night stay in vibrant Budapest before heading west through Germany, Austria and Slovakia, with highlights including the imperial grandeur of Vienna and Salzburg's beautiful Altstadt, ending with a two-night stay exploring the beautiful city of Prague.
French cruise line Ponant has waived the single supplement on a number of cruises on board their stylish yachts, and this 24 July 2023 round-trip voyage from Istanbul has caught our eye. The intimate Le Lyrial carries just 244 guests, with all meals and drinks included in your fare. Highlights include the spectacular archaeological site of Ephesus, the upmarket, yacht-lined harbour of Bodrum, and calls at several sleepy Greek islands including the pretty beaches and charming villages of Milos, bookended with exploring the cultural melting pot that is Istanbul.
The magnificent Norwegian Fjords should be on every cruiser's bucket list, and this no-fly, Southampton round-trip voyage departing on 14 July 2024 is a great option for solo travellers. Cunard's Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth all offer spacious single staterooms for solo travellers, with opportunities to be as sociable as you wish, from coffee meetups and cocktail receptions to group activities. Highlights on this sailing include the picturesque village of Olden and pretty Stavanger, the gateway to the spectacular Lysefjord.
