Avalon Caters to Rise in Solo Travel


Solo travel gives wayfarers and wanderers carte blanche to go when they want, where they want and indulge in their personal interests along the way. And it’s this freedom to experience the world on their own terms that makes solo travel one of the fastest-growing travel styles today. In fact, according to a recent “Wish List” “survey facilitated by Avalon Waterways, 13 percent (13%) of 16,600 respondents said they’re planning to go solo on their next river cruise.

“Traveling solo doesn’t always mean you’re on your own,” said Pam Hoffee, president of Avalon Waterways. “Providing a balance of solo and ‘nolo’ (on your own but never alone) experiences, we set the stage for the perfect vacation on – and off – our Suite Ships with the bonus of an on-site Cruise Director and expert local guides to ensure an engaging, life-changing cruise.”

To cater to the rise of solo travellers on river cruises, Avalon Waterways waives the single supplement on a select number of staterooms on nearly every departure in Europe and Southeast Asia. This offer earned the company the “Best for Solo Travelers in River Cruising” Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks Award this year.

“An average of 10 percent (10%) of our current guests are cruising solo,” said Hoffee. “They know that when they go with us, they can not only save money on their deluxe stateroom (172-square-feet) or Panorama Suite (200-square-feet), but they’re also invited to explore and engage with the world in the ways that interest them. From small group, passion-packed excursions to on-your-own exploration with the AvalonGO app, our guests are invited to not only uncover new discoveries, but to learn new things about themselves, every day, along the way.”

Solos interested in taking advantage of “no single supplement” deals with Avalon should book early. The deal is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For details, visit
