If you're a solo traveler, you probably know that most travel companies require a single supplement – a surcharge of between 10% and 100% of the standard rate. However, O.A.T. travelers enjoy their own room or cabin at no extra cost, saving up to $3795 per person. And we currently have less than 10 single spaces available across all of our 2021 departures and less than 10 single spaces available across all of our 2022 departures—so don’t wait to reserve.
