Premier is a very unique travel agency that works closely with the Solo Traveler Blog team. We’ve been selling cruises for more than 35 years, and specialize in river and small ship cruise vacations with a strong emphasis on providing invaluable information and money-saving river and small ship cruise offers to solo travelers. We look forward to working with you to plan and provide an enriching, money-saving, and hassle-free cruise experience for you that will be truly memorable.

Right about now you’re probably wondering, “Okay, so what makes a river or small ship cruise so special?”
There are numerous reasons why river and small ship cruising have become the most in-demand type of cruise vacations among Boomers and even pre-Boomers who yearn for more intimate, rewarding, relaxing and enriching destinational experiences. Most are tired of the mega-sized ocean ships, huge crowds and mediocre vacations — they’re also very tired of being nickel’d and dimed at every turn. Did we say river and small ship cruises include almost everything, including complimentary "small group" shore excursions, and even complimentary wines each night that are paired perfectly with your meals?

Just a bit more info to save you time and get you the BEST deal. While Viking River Cruises is the most widely known brand, please note that they DO NOT offer any price consideration for the solo traveler. What that means to you is that if you request a Viking saiing, you will pay double the twin rate. Save time for both of us by only requesting quotes from the more solo friendly lines such as: AmaWaterway, Uniworld, Scenic, Avalon and Tauck. By the way, while on the subject, Tauck offers NO single supplement prices on every departure of every itinerary.
