Solo cruise save with reduced-rate supplements

Perhaps the most annoying aspect of being a solo traveller is the additional fees that you often have to pay, so these discounted cruise supplements fares are bound to be appealing.

Azamara is expanding its reduced-rate supplement for single cruisers to 42 of its voyages in 2016 and 2017. Rather than having to pay full double-occupancy rates, those travelling alone, or who prefer a room to themselves, will pay just 125 per cent of the double-occupancy fare.

While Azamara Club Cruises are definitely at the luxurious end of the market, the reduced supplement may mean that for solo travellers, it becomes as affordable as some of the other cruise options. Solo fares onboard Azamara Journey, for its 15-night Australia and New Zealand cruise, start from $6099, departing 19 February 2017.

With smaller, more intimate ships, a cruise on Azamara may also be more preferable than one of the large cruise lines. As well as fine cuisine and world-class service, guests will enjoy a signature evening in Hobart, with a performance by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and a chance to meet the musicians.

    Starting at $6099 what a joke! This is still way more than the price of a share cabin on regular cruises that I have seen - looks like I wont be taking a cruise any time as they are all more than I can ever afford!

    Exactly Cheezil61. Could get a cabin on the Princess for less than that

    True people, but Azamara Club, as well as Silversea, are catering to a portion of the market that is more interested in luxury and pampering than the price, same as there are cruise lines that cater for the budget conscious, or families or older adults or young adults. If you do not fit into their niche look for another cruise line, there are plenty. For myself Princess, P&O and Holland America fit well with me so I tend to look at them first.

    You forgot to mention that cruising on your "smaller more intimate ships" come at a price, a HUGE price. Ignore the fallacy that the bigger ships are overcrowded and noisy, just as much fun can be had on a bigger ship, it is entirely up to the individual.

    Cheezil61 - totally agree!! What a rort! as usual, it is the same thing - RESEARCH!!! That cruise is Sydney to NZ - you then have to pay to fly home. Have a look at their web site and I cannot see how that can say it is '125 of the double occupancy rate'. Their lowest twin rate is $4300 - stating single as $7916. $4300 + 25% only comes to $5375. What is the difference?
    Another liner company - similar route and time - has Sydney - back to Sydney - for twin rate of $1690. Single rate being $2431. That means $1690 + 44% give you the single rate.
    FAR, FAR better to go for a dearer 'single' rate with any other liner than the so called single rate of Azamara.
    I do get sick and tired of company's that boast - 'we cater for singles', or 'we offer single person fares'. Rubbish. All it means is that they advertise the so called 'single' price, which is simply the normal twin price calculation for a single. Only recently I saw a tour with headlines - 'special price for singles of $4,989'. As usual, did some digging - only to find that the normal twin price was $2499. So TWO people could go for $4,998. ONE person could go for $4,989. A HUGE saving of...$9. I am still trying to see how that is 'special'.
