European Waterways says the solo travel market continues to expand as a new “generation of healthier, independent and more confident single travellers take to the road” to see the world.
European Waterways is addressing this fast-growing trend with the return of its exclusive “solo cruise” aboard Italy’s 20-passenger La Bella Vita, the largest vessel in its fleet. “Spacious and stylish, with all the modern conveniences including en suite, air-conditioned cabins, La Bella Vita is the only hotel barge sailing out of Venice to the Renaissance city of Mantua along the Po River and Bianco Canal,” the company says. “As with all European Waterways cruises, luxury, comfort, fine wine and gastronomic meals prepared by the onboard master chef ensure every guest is in the best of spirits as they enjoy the various activities and daily excursions.”
It is also offering 10% off on all advance bookings for this six-night, all-inclusive cruise, a saving of $560 off the $5,600 single rate.
Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways, said that: “While our guests may be traveling solo, they will never find themselves alone. We have carefully curated every aspect of the cruise to allow for maximum social interaction among guests, should they wish to mingle, while also ensuring plenty of ‘me time’ to soak in the experiences and relish the moments in their own, personal way. The cruise also features unique, ‘extra surprises’ that are sure to please and get everyone involved.”
Hosting up to 20 guests, La Bella Vita offers ample room for small groups while also providing every guest with their own personal space. Cabins are on the main and lower deck, with the main deck also featuring a spacious dining room, saloon and an open bar stocked with spirits and regional wines.
Guests can also sit back and relax on the canopied sun deck that spans the length of the boat and provides unobstructed views of the passing scenery.
A 2:1 guest to crew ratio ensures that every guest receives personal attention throughout the cruise.
