Good news for single travelers who like to cruise but don't like to pay a single supplement. The MS Birdsong, a river cruise ship set to debut March 2016, is to feature 18 cabins for solo passengers at no extra cost.
The company's new ship is to offer eight- to 13-day tours along Europe's main rivers.
Other features include an expanded fitness and wellness center, a sauna, a wine bar, a two-story atrium lobby and free Wi-Fi on board.
Land excursions, walking tours, a cocktail reception, gratuities, port charges, wine and beer with meals and other extras are included on Tom Harper trips. (Note that prices for extensions before or after cruises do charge a single supplement.)
The company emphasizes small-group travel, with land tours limited to 24 passengers.
Cabins are now on sale for nine cruises aboard the MS Birdsong in 2016. Prices start at $1,799 per person for six-night cruises on the Main and Rhine rivers in Germany.
