Solo cruise guests on the rise with Sail Croatia
The specialist small cruise ship operator has seen an increase in single travellers across all its products
Sail Croatia has reported an increase in UK solo guests across its 2022 voyages. In total, almost a quarter of all guests who book with the line are now travelling alone.
Sail Croatia offers six types of cruises, with both its yacht tour and hiking cruises experiencing a solo guest uplift of more than 10% compared to 2019. The yacht tours, which are group sailings for those under 39 years old, are proving most popular, with single traveller numbers increasing by 14%. Hiking cruises have seen an 11% rise in solo travellers onboard.
The line has also seen increases in all of its other cruise products, which comprise luxury, party, explorer and cycle sailings. Party sailings attract the most singles, with 35% of revellers choosing to travel on their own.
Director Grant Seuren said: “Now more than ever it’s clear your personal circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to enjoying your ideal holiday. Whether you’re on your own or want to enjoy the independence of solo travel, our cruises are becoming increasingly popular with UK solo travellers, as they provide a safe, tailored and welcoming environment for everyone.
“We’re proud to see so many like-minded travellers from all corners of the globe sail with us. It’s particularly rewarding to see so many solo guests become friends during their cruise and maintain their friendship long after they return home. Solo travel provides an amazing opportunity and we want to ensure there are no barriers to setting sail on your own.”
Sail Croatia’s cabins are twin-share, and solo travellers are able to book a spot in a cabin, before being matched with a fellow guest. Alternatively, guests can opt for a private cabin for a single supplement.
