DISCOVER THE WORLD WITH THE
LEADER IN WOMEN’S SOLO TRAVEL!




Why is Vantage the leader in women's solo travel?

To put it simply, it’s because we provide women and all independent travelers with an award-winning, elevated solo travel experience. You’ll enjoy FREE Single Supplements on every journey, elegant solo accommodations, and exclusive events and activities designed just for our solo guests. Each year, more and more guests, specifically women, are deciding to travel solo and we’re proud to offer them the best options for their journeys no matter what the itinerary.

Nearly 84% of all solo travelers are women, and we’ve curated incredible experiences that provide them extensive cultural immersion, natural exploration, and social mixers on board that are sure to delight. With a Vantage solo journey, you can enjoy the freedom of traveling independently without feeling alone. Just look at what you have in store:

  • Landmark solo accommodations with pricing that’s ideal for women looking to explore the world with us
  • FREE Single Supplements available on all ships
  • All outside cabins when you travel solo with Vantage
  • Low ship capacity and tremendous crew-to-passenger ratio

Whether you’re on an exhilarating expedition cruise to breathtaking polar regions or on a small ship discovery cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong, you’ll travel solo in comfort and style. Set off aboard our brand-new 5-star vessels, Ocean Explorer and the Ocean Odyssey for small ship discovery and expedition cruises. Venture along the storied rivers of Europe aboard our Deluxe m/s Splendor and down Egypt’s enchanting Nile River aboard the 5-star m/s Nebu.

If you prefer to travel by land, choose from a breadth of unforgettable adventures from African safaris to tours through America’s majestic national parks. Whichever way you roam, your experience will be curated to you — our valued solo traveler.

With a Vantage solo journey, you can enjoy the freedom of traveling independently without feeling alone.





Always Innovative. Uniquely Vantage.

Landmark Solo Accommodations

We made it a priority to ensure that our new 5-star ocean fleet was outfitted with a landmark 15 solo cabins, many with private verandas and all facing outdoors for the perfect view at sea or in port. We’ve also added even more custom-built solo cabins to our award-winning river fleet, including Solo Suites aboard our 5-star m/s Nebu in Egypt. Our ships are small, with a passenger capacity of under 150 to ensure maximum privacy and service on your solo journey with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most frequently asked questions about our Solo Travel Program.

What kind of Single Supplement will I have to pay?

As more and more women travel solo with us, we get this question a lot. It may well be that you pay no single supplement at all, if you take advantage of the one FREE Single Supplement space we offer women on just about every departure of every Vantage trip. Plus, Vantage is the only company in the travel industry whose river ships (and most of our small ocean-going ships) have single occupancy cabins where there is no supplement at all. For either of these options early reservations are a must because space is limited. But you may still be able to save…. You can request that we find you a same-sex roommate with our Roommate Matching plan, which eliminates the single supplement if we find you a roommate. Otherwise, we have the lowest single supplements around (we’ve recently reduced our rates), starting at just $1,499. 

Can you match me with a roommate?

Yes we can! Sign up for our FREE Roommate Matching Service, and we will find you a same-sex roommate so you both pay only the double occupancy rate. You’ll pay half the single supplement up front, and when we find you a match your money will be refunded. If we fail to find you a roommate, you travel as a single but only pay 50% of the usual single supplement.

How do you help solo travelers prepare for their trips?

After you reserve you’ll receive detailed information about your upcoming trip—a complete day-to-day itinerary, hotel descriptions, packing tips, suggested reading and movies, and much more. Your Tour Director, Cruise Director or Adventure will email you in advance of your departure to introduce him- or herself and ask if you have any questions or special requests.

What kind of support do you provide for solos during their journeys?

Every Vantage journey is led by an experienced Tour Director, Cruise Director, or Adventure Leader. He or she will make sure the journey goes smoothly for everyone. But they always keep a special eye out for our solo travelers, so that you always feel welcome, comfortable, and engaged. Do you need directions to a special shop? Looking for someone to share a taxi? Want some help translating the menu? Your leader will be right there to assist. If you have a special hobby or interest, let them know about it and they will do their best to connect you with others in the group who might share your interest.

Jane Farley , 1st-time traveler

The entire crew was outstanding and as a single traveler I knew right away I was in good hands. From the start of my journey to the end, it was by far one of the best vacations I have ever been on.
