Three new solo-only river sailings in Europe announced – no single supplements for all passengers

Riviera Travel to offer a record 12 solo-only river cruises in Europe this year with announcement of three more solo-only sailings

All cabins are for sole occupancy with no single supplement – saving thousands

Luxury, solo-friendly river cruise line, Riviera Travel, has announced the addition of three more sailings in Europe later this year exclusively for solo passengers, bringing its number of solo-only cruises in 2019 to a record 12 departures – four times the number of sailings offered in 2018, which was three.

All cabins on the three new sailings will be free of any single supplement.

The new solo-only sailings are:

* An eight-day ‘Blue Danube’ cruise from Budapest on November 1, 2019, bound for Slovakia and Austria and return. The cruise aboard the brand, new, five-star river ship, William Wordsworth, launched this month, takes in the imperial city of Vienna, the stunning baroque-style abbey at Melk and the romantic ‘Sound of Music’ city of Salzburg. Fares are available for solo travellers from $2769.

* An eight-day ‘Douro, Porto and Salamanca’ cruise, round-trip from Porto in Portugal on November 10, 2019, aboard the five-star Douro Splendour, with fares for solo travellers from $3659. The cruise takes passengers along the spectacular Douro river, which is lined by charming medieval villages and cascading vineyards.

* An eight-day Burgundy, River Rhone and Provence’ cruise from Lyon to Avignon in France aboard the five-star William Shakespeare, departing on November 4, 2019. The cruise features the wine region of Burgundy, the flower-flecked meadows of Provence, the spectacular Rhone Valley, the gastronomic capital of Lyon, the Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard and the city of Arles – once home to famed painter, Vincent Van Gogh. Solo fares are from $3549.

Fares include daily guided excursions, onboard meals and Wi-Fi. Fares and cabins are subject to availability.

Now renowned for servicing the needs of solo travellers, Riviera Travel is also offering nine other cruises for solo passengers only across Europe throughout 2019, with single travellers enjoying a cabin to themselves without the need to share with other passengers. And because each cabin only has one passenger in it on these special sailings, rather than two, single guests also enjoy the benefits of a more spacious ship.

Riviera Travel, which offers inclusive, five-star cruises at fares up to 50 per cent lower than river companies more established in Australia, also offers a selection of solo-only cabins on every sailing and every ship all year long.

Bookings are available via Australian travel agents, Cruiseco, Cruise Traveller or visit
