Sister river cruise lines Scenic and Emerald Waterways have removed single occupancy supplements on selected 2017 river cruises following feedback from agents and solo travellers.
The brands have for the first time unveiled ‘no single supplement’ departures on the Rhine and Seine rivers for Scenic, and the Rhine and Eastern Danube rivers for Emerald Waterways.
Dawn Quinn, national sales manager for the cruise lines, said: “Growing popularity and requests from both our agents and our guests show river cruises, where guests can choose to take part in escorted group excursions and enjoy high levels of service and inclusions on board, are an ideal choice for discerning solo travellers looking to discover multiple destinations in one seamless journey.”
The brands have released social media banners and offer flyers directing customers towards their local travel agent to accompany the launch. Agents can also contact their regional sales manager for sales tools and support.
