One of the most popular lines for solo river cruisers, Riviera Travel has doubled its offerings for its single travellers.
The line announced that all cabins, on certain cruises, are for sole occupancy with no single supplement, so guests looking for a holiday on their own can save thousands.
Riviera Travel’s International Sales Manager, Thomas Morgan, said the line has seen an increase in people looking for solo holidays.
“We know solo travellers enjoy our river cruises and to meet growing demand, we have upped the number of cruise itineraries exclusively for solo travellers to four in 2019,” said Mr Morgan.
“Our five-star ships provide the perfect base and our itineraries offer opportunities to share wonderful experiences with like-minded travellers.
“The cruises have been planned for spring and autumn, 2019, when the destinations visited will be more relaxed so customers don’t have to jostle with the summer crowds.
“They can choose any cabin or suite on each ship and there will be no additional single supplement to pay whatsoever.”
Four European river cruise itineraries have newly added departures reserved exclusively for solo travellers:
- Seven-night, round-trip cruise from Porto along the Douro River in Portugal on March 31, 2019;
- Two seven-night, round-trip cruises from Budapest on the Danube River on April 1 and October 28, 2019;
- Seven-night cruise on the Rhone and Saone Rivers from Lyon to Avignon in France on October 31, 2019.
Fares start at $2769 and are subject to availability. The price includes daily visits and guided excursions, all onboard meals, WiFi and the services of a Riviera Travel cruise director and tour manager.
Offering inclusive, five-star cruises at fares up to 50 per cent lower than river companies more established in Australia, Riviera Travel’s 12 luxury river cruise ships will carry a record 47,000 passengers on 327 departures across Europe in 2019.
Riviera Travel’s spacious, five-star ships offer fine dining restaurants, marble lobbies, sumptuous lounges, sun decks, splash pools, gyms and suites boasting French or full balconies.
