Single traveller river cruises offer a fantastic way for single people to see the world. Whether you want to meet like-minded people or enjoy peaceful time alone, a river cruise is one of the safest and easiest ways to travel solo. The river cruises on this page all show the prices for one person.
The term ‘singles river cruises’ is not to be misconstrued. The singles river cruises listed on this page are not matchmaking or romantic events, they are normal river cruise holidays which have been hand-picked because they are excellent for solo travellers.
Some river cruises have get-togethers for single travellers such as welcome dinners and cocktail parties where people can get together and make new friends. Tables in the on-board restaurants are shared, so you’ll always have someone to chat to over dinner should you want to.
Whilst river cruise lines don’t tend to have single cabins, double cabins are always available for single occupancy.
One of the best ways to get a great deal as a single traveller is to book a river cruise without a single supplement. The standard single supplement can be anything up to 100% of the cruise fare, so looking out for river cruises where the single supplement is waived or reduced can be a great way to make a saving.
Exotic and European river cruises without single supplements are available with a variety of cruise lines. Riviera Travel offers a collection of river cruises which are exclusively for solo travellers. Tauck is another favourite cruise line of solo travellers since they eliminated the single supplement on all Category 1 cabins on European river cruises.
On a river cruise, everything is taken care of for you, which makes it a great option for older travellers who want to avoid the hassle of planning a holiday. At each port of call you’ll have a choice of guided excursions to suit various levels of activity. Most river cruises also have a dedicated river cruise director on the ship to make sure that everything runs smoothly and that everyone is well catered-for.
The river cruises on this page all show the prices for one person. These prices are inclusive of any single supplements which may have been applied.
