Cruise news: Big savings for solo cruisers

Font Size:

Cruise companies are offering a load of last-minute river cruise deals for 2018 voyages as well as single supplement savings on 2019 cruises.

Avalon Waterways has a super, no single supplement sale on all 2019 European river cruises, meaning you could save up to $7366, if you book your river cruise by 27 July 2018.

Emerald Waterways is doing the same, waiving the single supplement when you book a category E stateroom on selected 2019 European cruises.

And Scenic is offering a 50 per cent savings on the single supplement when you book a suite on selected journeys lasting 11 days or longer in 2019.

Need a reason to river cruise? Surely huge savings is as good as any!
