Travellers Embrace Solo-Friendly Opportunities to Explore the World

Abercrombie & Kent Offers Up to 75 Percent Savings for Solo Travellers on More Than 50 Journeys

September 08, 2023

Travellers often face the prospect of going it alone, whether pursuing a personal passion such as wildlife photography, exploring a remote destination or due to scheduling conflicts with friends and family. Today, many are embracing this opportunity for solo travel. A recent study conducted by Abercrombie & Kent found that 13 percent of guests travelling to Antarctica were cruising solo.

“This is a trend we are seeing not just in Antarctica, but in iconic destinations around the world,” explains Stefanie Schmudde, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy, Abercrombie & Kent. “Our solo guests have found that expedition cruising and small group travel offer the most ideal experience. Throughout the day, they can explore and socialize with other like-minded travellers, while still having time to themselves when they want it. It really is the best of both worlds.”

With solo travel trending, Abercrombie & Kent is making it easier than ever for individual travellers by offering 50% off the single supplement on select departures of 2024 Small Group Journeys and up to 75% off on Luxury Expedition Cruises.
