Travellers going it alone
MORE travellers are opting to go it alone with expedition cruise line Aurora Expeditions witnessing double digit growth year-on-year over the past few years for solo travel bookings to the polar regions.
Aurora Expeditions offers passengers a cabin mate finding service, which matches guests with a cabin mate of the same gender and roughly the same age.
If a suitable partner cannot be found, the traveller will only pay the standard share occupancy rate. For the guaranteed privacy of a whole room, there’s the option to pay a surcharge, with a limited number of cabins on Aurora Expeditions’ new Greg Mortimer ship providing a solo rate with a 25% surcharge.
