Going solo

One of the phrases solo travelers hate but frequently endure is “Single supplement applies!” 

This means you’d better be prepared to pay a substantial additional fee! Yes you’re(me too)  being penalized for traveling alone. 

There are countless many of us who travel unaccompanied and a few suppliers are starting to get it. We are a good sized market!

New build NCL ships have cabins specifically designed for the solo cruiser. Other companies are waiving the single supplement on specific cruises and tour departures.

Solo travelers should check with their travel agent for these special deals for the "I am going alone" customer.
