Generally, I travel independently. I like the excitement of changing my itinerary on a whim and meeting new people all the time so I don’t usually take solo travel tours or cruises.
But, occasionally, a solo travel tour is on offer that strikes my fancy. A few have come across my computer screen lately and, while I post all packaged travel I find that doesn’t include a single supplement on the Solo Travel Deals page (I use Google Alerts to receive a notice every time one is added to the web) I think these are worth noting separately. I’ll do this every few months or so — whenever there is a number that I think warrant some special attention.
Unique and interesting solo travel destinations.

Some people may be surprised that I have not included the Norwegian Epic but I’m afraid that, while I applaud them for accommodating solo travelers, this is just not my type of travel.
