Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has introduced ‘twin-for-sole occupancy’ discounts, which means that a solo guest, occupying a twin room, will pay no single-supplement on bookings made from February 1 until March 1 on a range of itineraries.

As an example, an eight-night 'Lochs of Scotland' on Boudicca, departing on May 8 (adult-only) offers no single-supplement for a superior ocean view room/ocean view room, with prices starting from £1,199 per person.

Once on board, solo travellers will find exclusive gatherings for them to get to know each other, and staff on board will seat them together for dinner and arrange companions for solo travellers when going ashore, if required. There are also gentleman hosts and dance couples on board the ships to provide dancing partners for solo guests.
