NEW for 2022! ZERO Supplement Solo Suites on Crystal River Cruises

Calling all solo travelers! Crystal Mozart, Europe’s most spacious river ship invites you to cruise the Danube in 2022 in one of 38 newly dedicated Solo Suites with zero single supplements on all voyages – an industry first. Beginning in Spring 2022, the all-suite, butler-serviced ship will cruise weekly from Vienna roundtrip on a 7-night Danube Dreams & Discoveries itinerary featuring overnights in the Austrian capital and Budapest trip to Salzburg from Linz, daytime cruising through the Wachau Valley and more.

From Michelin-inspired cuisine to unparalleled enrichment both aboard and     ashore, the Crystal River Experience is unrivaled among European river lines as shown here. Crystal Mozart will cruise at a reduced capacity with the highest crew-to-guest ratio of any ship on Europe’s waterways, further elevating Crystal’s genuine hospitality. At 219 square feet, Crystal Mozart’s Solo Suites are up to 56% larger than comparable guest rooms on the rivers of Europe, a tempting opportunity for you to relax and discover the joys of cruising with Crystal.

Tips on Thursday - Solo Travelers

Singles Want Terrific Cruises Too

Cruising is the most enjoyable and convenient way to see the world, and every year, yet most cruise lines are not in the single traveler business.   Cruise lines generally charge a "single supplement" to passengers traveling solo. From the cruise line's perspective, what they are selling is space on the ship. If there are two or more people in a cabin, they split the cost of that space.  People traveling alone pay for all the space by themselves. 

Typically, the cruise line starts with the per-person rate based on double occupancy and adds 50-100% to the price for a single. That means that a cabin that sells for $1,000 per person based on double occupancy would be sold to a single for $1,500 to $2,000.

Norwegian Cruise Line has developed a terrific program for single travelers, offering single space (and rates without the single supplement) in single rooms with a shared common area “living room” where single travelers can mix and mingle when not in their individual sleeping quarters.  Be sure to check it out on the Norwegian Epic and Breakaway.

Featured Foto Friday - Single Soarin'

Single Rider Pass for Soarin' Over California at Disney California Adventure...
definitely something they ought to have at Soarin' at Epcot.
Soarin' - whether it's Soarin' Over California as at Disney California Adventure - or just plain Soarin' as at Epcot... is one of my all-time favorite attractions.  I have loved it since it first opened up at DCA in 2001.  I loved it when I first heard that news that it would open at Epcot in 2005, and I always want to ride it when in those parks.  

But there's one huge difference between the two parks... I can ride it as a Single Rider at DCA, but not at Epcot.  That is such a wonderful thing, especially when on my various solo treks to the parks.  Epcot did, for a short time, have a Single Rider line, but quickly did away with it.  I sure wish they would bring it back.
