The world isn't only made for two and there's something seriously indulgent about relaxing solo in your suite or treating yourself to that amazing bottle of wine with dinner. Oceania's special solo traveller fares take the expense out of travelling independently, leaving you with little else to think about but where you'll go; a choice that's entirely up to you... See exactly what you want to see, eat where you want to eat, go to bed at 8pm after a busy shore day or wake up at noon and head straight to the spa.
Book your Oceania cruise for one - you deserve it. Take a look at the itineraries below.

While on board dining rooms usually include a limited number of tables for two and four, there are plenty of larger tables, designed for mixing groups of travellers together. Six and eight occupancy tables are typically the norm, so there’s often a very diverse range of age, interest, and conversation.
Solo travellers are welcome to attend all events and entertainments, with many cruise lines hosting a ‘singles night’ on the first night of a cruise. Many cruise lines will also host a number of events specifically for solo travellers who are keen to meet others in a similar situation.
Cruising has long been recognised as the perfect way for solo travellers to holiday; itineraries are planned for you, including the practicalities such as flights, hotels, transfers and dining arrangements, making it the most stress-free way to travel. If you’re new to cruising, you may be surprised by how many solo travellers you will meet during your voyage.
