Fred Olsen have just made things a lot easier for solo cruisers by taking away the single supplement on more than 14 sailings.
It is included as a part of its new ‘Cruise Sale’ and will take place on trips between March 2019 and March 2020 as long as the new booking is made by February 28th 2019.
The solo offer means travellers can visit the Canary Islands or discover a city in Europe without any extra fee for staying in a twin-room for solo occupancy.
The line’s director of Product and Customer Service, Clare Ward, has stated: “Not only do we have amongst the highest proportion of solo rooms in the industry across our ocean fleet, including Suites, but the smaller size of our ships and the attentiveness of our crew makes the holiday experience a more comfortable and less intimidating one for those travelling solo.
We also know that many solo guests like the option of enjoying a twin room. Travel is such an exciting part of life, and we don’t want the additional cost of single supplements to prevent anyone from exploring the world!”
Guests can expect the following itineraries to include the ‘no single supplement’:
