Comments

We took what people are now used to and placed it together while allowing them to have their luggage picked up and delivered to and from there destinations. We have created a traveling platform that allows travelers to travel how they want with full transparency to what it will cost to experience the trip of their dreams. We would love your help designing and building a company that truly addresses the problems and concerns of frequent flyers. Thanks you 🥰
Libby just found your site interested, I am single senior, and usually can leave at drop of a hat if the rates fit my budget. I am on the east coast, ports here are 15 miles away from me so prefer the tri state area to leave from, but will travel to other states if rates are reasonable I prefer 5 day and 7 day cruises I am a platinum on carnival also I do use NCL have 5 cruise under my belt with them, so will be watching your blog for future trips.
Love this site hope to take a vacation with you as a group soon.

World Travel for Singles specializes in providing fun, adventure, and exciting vacation opportunities to active singles just like yourself. We organize group tours and cruises all over the world.

World Travel For Singles has developed a travel network that is specially geared to upscale professional men & women. I am a 29 years plus veteran of the travel industry. Single and a lover of travel, I developed this program after too many trips alone. Since its founding in 1995, World Travel For Singles has taken groups of singles on cruises and tours all over the world. We also work with travel agencies. We welcome inquiries from all travel agencies. World Travel For Singles cruises & tours attract singles from across the United States that have a common love of travel. Speaking of love; our trips are not about finding romance. However, mother nature does take its’ course & has led to a number of our clients getting married. Traditionally solo travelers must succumb to the dreaded single supplement which typically is double the fare for cruises. Historically, it’s the largest group that receives the most amount of discrimination by the travel industry. The cruise lines want to make up for the “lost” revenue for that empty bed in your cabin, as one less passenger on board means one less person buying drinks, souvenirs, shore excursions, etc. Our roommate matching services allows for all travelers to be matched with a same-sex roommate to avoid paying the additional single supplement. Particular attention is paid to matching people close in age and smoking & non smoking preferences. Why sit at home? Why travel alone? Why not travel with us today? The time has come and the moment is right to get busy living! Live life to the absolute fullest and embrace every moment with World Travel For Singles. Come aboard and join us on our next trip

https://www.rivierarivercruises.com/ships/ms-william-wordsworth

This sailing on this new ship built in 2018 the MS William Wordsworth will be a total solo cruise, meaning every cabin will be sold as single occupancy with NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT. I have never seen a cruise line offer this deal to singles.

A little more info about this new ship:
After years of painstaking research to create the most perfect vessels afloat, a new era in river cruising dawns as we introduce our brand new, state of the art, ‘all suite’ ships. Swiss operated and truly world-class, we are absolutely delighted to present the five-star MS William Wordsworth.

It is extremely difficult to convey just how extraordinary this outstanding ship really is and exactly what distinguishes it from similar vessels. It would be very easy to just say ‘luxurious’ but it’s much more than that; we have deliberately avoided the current trend for a minimalist style where you could be anywhere in the world, creating instead a unique yet exquisite blend of understated taste, style and elegance at the highest level. Immediately striking is just how exceptionally spacious this new vessel is as you enter a gleaming, richly colored marble-floored lobby flooded with natural light from a stunning atrium above. Moving inside, exceptional creativity from Europe’s finest design studio has produced a superbly balanced masterpiece of onboard style, utilizing sustainable rich hardwoods, gleaming brass and polished copper, sparkling glass and intricate wrought iron. The ship is beautifully illuminated throughout – including the exterior and imaginatively furnished with harmonious color schemes, all designed to create the serene atmosphere reflective of the golden age of cruising which time after time you tell us you adore.

The restaurant rivals the finest on shore establishments taking fine dining to another level complemented by delicate European porcelain, gleaming glassware and the intuitive service in which the Swiss excel. This superb vessel carries 44 in-house trained crew members serving just 169 guests (similar size vessels may carry well over 190 passengers) giving the ratio which our experience proves is concurrent with our first class service levels.

Furthermore your suite will easily exceed your expectations for not only will you enjoy the most discerning decor, so too the ship’s dimensions afford the ultimate in space and comfort - a minimum 17 square meters (183 square feet), with upgrades available to ‘Superior’ and ‘Deluxe’ accommodation.

Day by day Itinerary

Day 1 Budapest
Arrive in Budapest, where your five-star floating hotel is moored. The dedicated crew will welcome you on board, ensuring you settle into your comfortable and extremely well-equipped cabin and familiarize yourself with the ship. There is always a sense of expectancy and excitement on the eve of a cruise and after an excellent dinner in the stylish restaurant, conversation is sure to revolve around the delights ahead of you.

Day 2 Esztergom
Experience one of the great joys of cruising as you awake in a completely different location. Overnight we slipped upstream to Esztergom, one of Hungary’s oldest towns, a royal capital during medieval times and today the seat of the country’s archbishop. Esztergom is famous for its enormous neoclassical basilica, Hungary’s largest church, standing sentinel over the Danube on the border with Slovakia, and boasting one of the world’s largest altarpieces and a wealth of priceless religious artifacts. The castle is also worth exploring; it was the seat of government until the Ottomans invaded in the 16th century. Nestling below are myriad atmospheric churches resonating with the enchanting sounds of choirs, adding to the unmistakable Central European atmosphere. This is the best of provincial Hungary and is little changed since Habsburg times. As you enjoy your first lunch on board we gently leave Esztergom in our wake, affording a fascinating opportunity to compare the different landscapes, towns and villages of Hungary on one river bank and of Slovakia on the other.

Day 3 Bratislava
This morning we explore Slovakia’s fast-emerging capital city, Bratislava, on a guided tour. Until recently swathed in the drab uniformity of Communism, the city has rekindled the splendor of its imperial past in its beautifully restored Old Town. Equally impressive is the imposing 17th-century castle commanding expansive views across the Danube.

This afternoon we cruise into Lower Austria, a peaceful, bucolic region and home to some of the country’s best wines. By now the stresses of everyday life seem distant as you absorb the ever-changing scenes we pass: children playing on the river banks, young couples strolling arm in arm like generations before them, vignerons carefully pruning their vines, and cobbled quaysides lined by half-timbered buildings, teeming with life. You’ll marvel as the Captain skillfully navigates the ship along the serene river and through locks whose mechanisms never cease to fascinate, as we cruise towards Dürnstein while enjoying another superb dinner.

Day 4 Durnstein & Melk

As well as being a delightfully picturesque town in a landscape of forested hills and vineyards, Dürnstein is known principally for two things: first, for the ice-blue tower of its abbey, which dominates the view, and second, for the castle where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned in 1192 after being shipwrecked on his return from the crusades then captured by his enemy, Leopold V, Duke of Austria. Set on a rocky outcrop high above the river, the castle is now ruined, but it’s easy to imagine England’s legendary monarch seething with frustration far from home, while waiting for his family to raise funds to pay his ransom.

After lunch you visit the remarkable Melk Abbey. Nothing quite prepares you for your first sight of this enormous honey-coloured building, standing resplendent above the surrounding countryside. Originally a castle, it was gifted to the Benedictine Order in the 11th century and, although reconstructed in Baroque style during the 18th century, it has remained a monastic school and monastery ever since. The Abbey is renowned for its 214-yard-long Emperor’s Gallery lined with portraits of Austrian royalty, many fine rooms and an ornate library containing over 100,000 volumes, including a unique collection of medieval manuscripts. After we re-join the ship, dinner is served during the final part of our cruise upstream through the pretty Nibelungengau, immortalised in the music of Wagner.

Day 5 Salzburg or Linz

Reaching Linz, you will have the choice to stay in the city and take a guided walking tour, exploring its charming baroque old town. At its heart you’ll see one of the finest squares in Austria, lined by grand pastel-colored facades with an impressive central Trinity Column of white marble, crowned by a gilded sunburst. There’s also the fortress-like castle, built high above the city by Emperor Friedrich III, now a museum housing a fine collection of nineteenth and twentieth-century artworks.

Alternatively, we drive to Salzburg, once an independent state whose archbishops turned it into one of the most sophisticated cities north of the Alps. Dominating the skyline is one of Europe’s largest stone fortresses, the Hohensalzburg, while beneath its walls church domes and spires rise from the delightful Altstadt, or Old Town. Then there’s the wonderful Hellbrunn Palace and the splendid formal gardens of the Mirabell Palace – a must for horticulture fans.

This morning, discover some of the city’s main sights in the company of an expert local guide, then you’re free to explore as you wish. Everywhere there are sights associated with the city’s most famous resident, Mozart, who played the harpsichord aged three, composed rudimentary music at five and wrote his first opera when he was 11!

Please note lunch is not included on this full day excursion to Salzburg; however, the ship will offer a packed lunch. We return to the ship for another splendid dinner.

Day 6 Vienna

For many, today’s visit to Vienna will be one of the highlights of the cruise. The city’s very name provokes images of elegance, fine music, wide boulevards, Baroque architecture and a rich tapestry of peoples who were drawn here from all corners of Europe. For 200 years until the First World War, Vienna was the cultural center of Europe and many of the showpiece buildings, galleries, aristocratic palaces and magnificent churches you see today were built to reflect its imperial status.

The city’s most iconic monument is the breathtaking Saint Stephen’s Cathedral, whose striking multicolored roof and huge Gothic South Tower dominate the skyline. There’s also the colossal Hofburg, the former royal court that is now home to a collection of museums, the Crown Jewels and the Spanish Riding School, and where the Vienna Boys’ Choir performs. Then there are the lavish Imperial Apartments and an outstanding collection of relics of the Holy Roman Empire, including, allegedly, the sabre of Charlemagne himself. The Kunsthistorisches Museum, which contains the world’s fourth largest collection of paintings, is just across the road.

This morning we have a tour with a local guide offering insights into why Vienna is one of Europe’s great capitals – the seat of the Habsburg emperors and home to some of the world’s finest classical composers, including Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart and, of course, a whole family of Strausses. During the afternoon you’re free to explore as you wish. Take a stroll in the Prater, notable for the huge Ferris wheel that features in several Cold War spy thrillers. Or, for something quite different, visit the Schönbrunn Palace, a former royal residence now housing a range of world-class museums and galleries. Perhaps, though, just take a stroll through Vienna’s atmospheric side streets, enjoy a coffee and a slice of delicious Sachertorte in one of the extraordinarily ornate coffee houses, or admire the skill of the street entertainers and even the occasional opera singer.

This evening we’ve arranged truly the ‘icing on the cake’: no visit to Vienna is complete without a live musical experience, so after dinner we have a classical recital on board. To hear this exquisite music played in the city of its creation makes a wonderful finale to the day.
Day 7 Budapest

Enjoy a leisurely morning as we cruise majestically through Hungary’s peaceful pastoral landscape towards Budapest. After lunch we enjoy a sightseeing tour of this captivating city, which truly lives up to its reputation as the ‘Pearl of the Danube’. The twin cities of Buda, built around the hilltop fortress, and Pest, with its wide boulevards, were fought over through the centuries. The Ottomans ruled here for 150 years before being ousted in the late 17th century, but their legacy lives on in the many thermal baths fed by hot springs, giving rise to Budapest’s other sobriquet – the ‘City of Spas’. After the end of Ottoman rule, Budapest became an imperial city of the Habsburg Empire, attracting great cultural and commercial wealth.

Castle Hill is Budapest in microcosm: two churches, seven museums and a theater among streets and squares with their own special atmosphere and a dramatic view across the river to the awe-inspiring Neo-Gothic Parliament Building. Budapest’s endless galleries, museums, outstanding Art Nouveau architecture and excellent shopping offer a fittingly elegant end to your Danube cruise. This evening’s Gala Dinner closes with a Hungarian folklore show, giving you time to bid farewell to your traveling companions and reflect on all the inspirational places, sights and sounds you have experienced on a truly ‘imperial’ cruise.

Day 8 Budapest
After breakfast this morning, the crew bids you farewell before you disembark the ship.

About us

World Travel For Singles, top travel agencies has developed a travel network that is specially geared to upscale professional men & women.

I am a 29 years plus veteran of the travel industry. Single and a lover of travel, I developed this program after too many trips alone. Since its founding in 1995, World Travel For Singles has taken groups of singles on cruises and tours all over the world. We also work with travel agencies online.We welcome all inquiries from all travel agencies.

World Travel For Singles cruises & tours attract singles from across the United States. We attract people that have a common love of travel. Speaking of love; our trips are not about finding romance. However, mother nature does take its’ course & has led to a number of our clients getting married. We do not encourage this behavior as we hate to lose clients!

Traditionally solo travelers must succumb to the dreaded single supplement which typically is double the fare for cruises. Historically, it’s the largest group that receives the most amount of discrimination by the travel industry. The cruise lines want to make up for the “lost” revenue for that empty bed in your cabin, as one less passenger on board means one less person buying drinks, souvenirs, shore excursions, etc. Our roommate matching services allows for all travelers to be matched with a same sex roommate to avoid paying the additional single supplement. Particular attention is paid to matching people close in age and smoking & non smoking preferences.

Why sit at home? Why travel alone? Why not travel with us today? The time has come and the moment is right to get busy living! Live life to the absolute fullest and embrace every moment with World Travel For Singles. Come aboard and join us on our next trip
