If you’ve been dreaming of taking that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Antarctica, but worry that travelling to Antarctica as a single traveller will be prohibitively expensive - we’ve got great news. Although many companies charge a single supplement to solo travellers to make up for a loss on double-occupancy cabins - several of our ships don’t charge single supplements if you’re prepared to share your room with another passenger. In fact, we even offer expeditions which have dedicated single cabins with no single supplement on select inside cabin rooms. Read on to find out how you can make the most of a solo trip to Antarctica and avoid paying 50 percent more with additional single supplement charges.
You may feel uneasy about embarking on an expedition to Antarctica by yourself, but you definitely won’t be lonely. With Antarctica’s breathtaking frozen tundra as your backdrop, a ship of like-minded adventurers, and daily activities - you’ll undoubtedly leave the continent with new friends from all over the globe.
For ships that offer cabin sharing, this is a great way to meet travel companions. Not only does it keep your overall cost low, but you’ll also meet fellow solo travellers.
If you opt for a single cabin, all Antarctic voyages offer exciting excursions and at-sea activities that will give you ample opportunities to get to know others on-board.
Most Antarctic cruises with no single supplement charge offset the lost space by pairing solo travellers together in a double, triple, or quad room. This ensures that you still pay a fair rate, while the cruise company can maximise available space. The following ships offer single guests the option to book on a sharing basis.
More and more companies are starting to see the potential in welcoming, rather than penalising, solo travellers. These ships offer dedicated single cabins with no single supplement on select inside-cabin rooms.
As you can see, Antarctica is a fantastic destination - whether you are travelling alone, with a partner, or with a group of friends. Travelling to Antarctica as a solo traveller is easier and less expensive than ever.
