Five of the best luxury cruise packages for solo travellers
With more and more of us choosing to travel by ourselves, the solo traveller market has grown considerably in recent years. There are a wealth of benefits when embarking on a solo cruise, particularly when that cruise is a luxury one, but with such a vast and eclectic choice of cruises, destinations and experiences to pick from – how does one know what to opt for?
Here, Fran Hayden, Marketing Executive at ROL Cruise considers five of the very best luxury cruise packages for solo travellers that should be on your radar if you’re planning to embark on a luxury solo cruise of your own.

Silversea’s Ultra-Luxury No-Fly Fjords of Norway
Silversea’s reputation as a specialist in all-inclusive ultra-luxury cruising often precedes them. Your home-from-home on this beautiful voyage, Silver Wind, holds a mere 296 guests, meaning that public areas feel spacious, dining feels uncrowded and, with a staff-to-guest ratio of nearly 1:1, as a solo traveller, you can feel extra-special as the crew lavish you with attention – or not, if you prefer.
This ultra-luxury no-fly cruise departs from London Tower Bridge, meaning that you will get to experience the unique opportunity to sail under the bridge itself before taking in the breathtaking fjords of Norway including top Nordic highlights such as Bergen – situated near the ‘King of Fjords’, Sognefjord; the UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord; picturesque Flåm, plus many more.
Not only this, but solo travellers with Silversea receive exceptional benefits including on board gratuities, complimentary Butler Service, a fully stocked in-suite bar and complimentary beverages – to name a few!

Sail the Shores of Thailand with Star Clippers
For a luxury solo cruise with a difference, then a unique tall ship voyage with Star Clippers is a must. Sail the shores of Thailand with an exclusive voyage from ROL Cruise, on board elegant Star Clipper and enjoy a true adventure on the waves. Including the atmosphere and character of traditional sailing but still with the comfort and luxury found on most modern cruises, Star Clippers provide an on board ambience not too dissimilar to that of a luxury yacht.
Featuring added value such as exclusive savings and a luxury three night hotel stay in Phuket, little can compare to the experience you will have as you embark, bound for idyllic Thai destinations such as Similan Island, Langkawi and Ko Hong.

Holland America’s Lines’ Inca & Panama Canal Discovery
If you’re a solo traveller seeking an off-the-beaten track experience whilst indulging in the luxury of your floating hotel, then this exclusive package from the experts at ROL Cruise could be perfect for you. Holland America Line holds true to the timeless elegance of ocean travel and as a solo traveller, a jam-packed adventure might appeal more than a Med or Caribbean cruise in the lap of luxury.
This brand new itinerary features inclusions such as a full day tour of Machu Picchu and a full daytime transit of the Panama Canal – both bucket-list experiences – as well as taking you to other Peruvian hotspots such as La Serena, Pisco and Lima. Holland America Line themselves offer spacious mid-sized ships, fine dining under the guidance of their Culinary Council® and exclusive on board activities enhanced by partnerships with reputable organisations such as BBC Earth Experiences.
