Intrepid Travel

Intrepid Travel has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1989.

Back then, who would have known a company that began with two bearded backpackers, a typewriter and a kitchen table would eventually grow into the world’s largest small-group adventure tour company, carrying over 100,000 travellers across the globe each year. And although we’re a bit larger these days – with 1,800 local staff based around the world and over 1,000 different trips across every continent (not to mention multiple kitchen tables) – our mission remains the same. We still get a kick out of responsible travel, small groups and very (very) big adventures.

These cruise lines are getting on board with welcoming the SOLO traveller in a variety of ways, from SOLO exclusive meet and greet cocktail parties to single supplement free select sailings

Seabourn Quest

 

Seabourn has a different approach to their SOLO Travellers as far as a single supplement goes; they will allow you to purchase a “run of the house” cabin for the cost of 150% of the least expensive room in a range of categories.
