These days, everyone is looking for a GREAT “deal,” no matter how wealthy they are.
We believe strongly that our solo travelers should enjoy the same opportunity to enjoy great savings on many river and small ship cruises. Premier works closely with our "solo" travelers, always paying special attention to their needs, desires, and budget. For that — and many other reasons — we've been commended for our service and great solo deals by Janice Waugh of the Solo Traveler Blog, Elizabeth Avery of a solo blog called Solo Trekker 4U, the New York Times, Condé Nast, and many other influential travel publications.

'Solo' Traveler SPECIAL DEALS.
In our "Solo" Traveler Special Deals Section (updated weekly), we feature a number of Premier’s exclusive, “negotiated” deals and other special solo offers from award-winning river and small ship cruise lines such as AmaWaterwaysAvalon Waterways, Tauck, Scenic, Uniworld, and Emerald Waterways. On most of the ‘Hot Deal’ cruises, we can offer "solo" travelers either a NO single supplement rate or a significantly lower rate than the usual 150%-200% solo rates featured on lines such as Viking.

The most 'Solo'-friendly cruise lines.
With that in mind, we can say with certainty that the following river cruise lines are the most SOLO friendly... Uniworld Boutique Collection River Cruises, Emerald Waterways, Avalon Waterways, and Tauck. Of these brands, Tauck, Uniworld and Emerald are all-inclusive river cruise lines. That means once on board, you pay for almost nothing! And, on Tauck river cruises you never have to pay a single supplement, never! They have a guaranteed solo rate on each and every European itinerary they offer. Now keep in mind that these guaranteed solo rates are in their standard riverview cabins which comes with a nice large window, but they are the same size as all of their other staterooms and with all the same cabin amenities enjoyed in the suites. This really is a great opportunity for "solo" travelers to enjoy Tauck at affordable rates.

One more thing for you to consider as a solo traveler.
Viking River Cruises is the most well-known brand, but the LEAST solo friendly of all river cruise lines. By that we mean that Viking very rarely offers solo travelers a break on the price. In most cases, Viking charges a surcharge for solo travelers, so please save us both a bit of time and don't request a quote/price for Viking. You are best served by requesting one of the solo-friendly lines noted above.

Space is limited for 'Solo' travelers so you absolutely MUST book early!
Because river cruising is so popular, most departures sell out a full year before the departure date — solo or not! That means booking early for solo travel is ABSOLUTELY even more critical. Why? Because there are ONLY one or two solo cabins on a ship and they sell out quickly. Plus, as it gets later in the year, solo traveler deals become impossible to get. Booking early is easy and not really too painful to your wallet as the deposit is only $200-$400 with the balance due 90 days before you travel — you don't pay for it all upfront — at Premier, we'll even take scheduled payments if that helps — take a look at our FREE Easy Pay Lay Away plan.

If you have questions — the best and fastest way to get answers is to call and speak with one of our Solo Travel Cruise Experts at 1-855-255-1200. By chatting with an expert, they may be able to find ways for you to enjoy the cruise of your choice at a very special rate. That, along with ensuring that solo travelers are on the BEST cruise line — ones that make you feel at home — is what we do better than any other travel agency.

River and small ship cruising as a 'Solo' traveler is a very affordable, rewarding, and safe vacation.
