Solo Antarctica and Arctic Cruises

Solo travel options for those who are seeking adventure and are going it alone.

Solo travel to Antarctica and to the Arctic doesn't have to break the bank. Solo travelers continue to be an increasingly large percentage of guests on any given polar cruise. You will be able to experience polar travel with other like-minded solo travelers who are seeking the same adventure and experience.

Willing to Share Trips

Several of our partners offer Willing To Share arrangements across many cabin categories on their ships.

These arrangements are a great alternative to paying the dreaded single suppement as a solo traveler.

If you're solo, the operator will try to find another cabin mate of the same gender who is also traveling solo. If no other solo traveler is found, the single supplement is waived on your double cabin - a risk-free opportunity for adventurers who travel solo and don't mind sharing.
