'No single supplement' cruises: 5 of the best in 2024 and 2025

Cruise Advice

At Mundy Cruising we've always tried to understand more about the issues and concerns of our solo travellers, and we regularly campaign for lower or no single supplements with our cruise line partners.

Solo cruising is a wonderful way to travel, allowing you to meet like-minded people with the likes of group sightseeing tours and getting involved on board with activities like wine tasting, quizzes and much more. Here are five of the most interesting itineraries coming up in 2024 and 2025 on our top solo-friendly cruise lines, all with no single supplement to pay:

5 of the best cruises with no single supplement

1. Uniworld River Cruises - Milan, Venice & the Jewels of Veneto

Uniworld's itineraries are excellent for solo travellers with perfectly planned voyages, a welcoming atmosphere and an all-inclusive offering that ranges from outstanding food to onboard entertainment and wellness classes. We love Uniworld's 10-night Milan, Venice & the Jewels of Veneto river cruise sailing from Milan to Venice which takes place on board the beautiful S.S. La Venezia, the perfect way to experience this iconic city.

Uniworld are currently waiving the single supplement on a number of select departures, with the 21 June sailing offering a particularly appealing lead-in fare as you experience the cultural treasures of Venice and its surrounds, from Saint Mark's Basilica to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

2. AmaWaterways - Impressions of the Seine & Paris

Why not travel among France's treasures on a river cruise on board AmaWaterways' luxurious AmaDante on their Impressions of the Seine & Paris voyage? 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.

You'll enjoy fine dining on board as well as a daily Sip & Sail cocktail hour to chat to your fellow guests, alongside small group excursions and a highly attentive crew. With a waived single supplement on select ships in Europe 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 Musical Magic Along The Blue Danube voyage departing in May, June and October this year and next 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 discovering the beautiful city of Prague, all explored with Tauck's excellent included tours to connect solo river cruisers with other like-minded travellers.


4. Ponant - Croatia & the Adriatic Coast

French cruise line Ponant has waived the single supplement on a number of cruises on board their stylish yachts, including an Adriatic voyage from Dubrovnik to Venice departing in August 2025 aboard L'Austral. With a relaxed, informal atmosphere on board perfect for carving out new friendships, highlights on this cruise include an overnight in the enchanting walled city of Dubrovnik, the sandy beaches of Croatia's forest-encircled Rab and Bol islands, the lesser-explored national parks of the Brijuni archipelago and UNESCO-listed Stari Grad, as well as calls at several other chic Croatian harbours and remote islands, ending in the cultural melting pot that is Venice.


5. Cunard - The Norwegian Fjords

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. And, where better to experience it all than the magnificent Norwegian Fjords?

We think they 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. Highlights on this sailing include the picturesque village of Olden and pretty Stavanger, the gateway to the spectacular Lysefjord.
