Accommodations For Solo Travelers
Those who have traveled solo with us before know that a cruise with Blount is the perfect opportunity meet new people. People who share a thirst for adventure and love unique experiences. Cruising with less than 83 passengers, solo travelers become fast friends with crew the moment they step onboard. The social environment on a Blount ship encourages passengers to mix and mingle in communal rooms like the vista view lounge and top dock. Solo travelers love our open seating dining room, where they can sit at a new table each night and enjoy a delicious chef prepared meal with 6 to 8 other people. There is always great conversation and laughs to be had, plus amazing stories shared from passengers who are often avid travelers.
Blount cruises are perfect for solo cruisers because they will never get lost in a crowd or feel alone. Our crew will know you by name and wait on your every need. Instead of calling housekeeping, you will ask Julia or Audra for fresh towels. Great relationships are made over the course of a trip, many of which evolve into life long friendships. Feeling like you are cruising on a friend's yacht, the social atmosphere with Blount is a huge appeal and one of the biggest reasons why our passengers cruise with us time and time again.
We have several options available for our solo adventurers:
1.) We have select cabins configured as single accommodations and priced for single occupancy only. These cabins are often the first to book, so it is best to reserve well ahead of time!
2.) Single supplements are available but rates vary based on departure and cabin category.
3.) We offer a “Willing to Share” program that allows you to pay a per person rate for a double occupancy room. You will be waitlisted for a same-gender traveling companion, However should no other person reserve under this program you will be placed alone in that double occupancy cabin. We also have designated double occupancy cabins you may reserve at an additional cost.
If you have any questions, our reservationists are ready to talk! They will be able to discuss these options with you further and help you determine which one is right for you. Call 800-556-7450.
