“We are seeing growing demand from solo travellers in the expedition sector in recent years,” says Jeff Gillies, commercial director of Coral Expeditions.

Australia’s Coral Expeditions is expanding its solo traveller programme with a variety of new options and offers.

“We are seeing growing demand from solo travellers in the expedition sector in recent years,” says Jeff Gillies, commercial director of Coral Expeditions.

“We understand guests are choosing to travel on their own for many different reasons, so we are motivated to ensure we are offering attractive and suitable options for explorers to consider.”

Gillies cites a growing presence of solo travellers on expeditions offering themes and special interest content where like-minded travellers are gathering together.

“Our ships hold no more than 120 passengers at one time, which is a deliberate decision to ensure the experience is intimate and the onboard atmosphere is warm and welcoming. All guests dine together, swapping stories and making new friends as they take in the ever-changing vistas on our expedition sailings.”

No Single Supplement offers are available on all Great Barrier Reef departures year-round and on a growing range of selected itineraries in regions such as Raja Ampat and the Spice Island, Papua New Guinea and the Solomons and South Pacific.

Options include Single Occupancy fares for guests who would like a confirmed booking on a voyage in a private cabin; Standby Single fares for travellers who are happy to wait for a saving and would like to have a private cabin without paying a single supplement; and Single Guest Match for those looking to buddy up with someone during their sailing.

Single Guest Match, like the Standby Singles fare, is suitable for guests who are flexible in their travel times but are willing to share a cabin with another guest of the same sex.

In 2020 Coral Expeditions will sail a new 35-night Circumnavigation of New Guinea, one of the world’s most remote cultural and natural destinations, onboard the new 120 passenger Coral Adventurer.
