IE has made every effort to make our journeys open and inclusive for all travelers, and that includes keeping single supplements as low as possible and waiving the fees throughout the year – not just at the last minute.
HELENA, Ala. (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
Continuing to grow their following of solo travelers, International Expeditions is offering cabins with no single supplement fees on all 2015 and 2016 Cuba Voyage and Raja Ampat cruise departures, as well as on all Zambia safaris.
“We have seen growing numbers of single travelers looking for safe, escorted travel to the world’s wildlife-rich regions, and solo travelers make up 21 percent of all passengers on our Amazon and Galapagos cruises,” said IE President Van Perry. “IE has made every effort to make our journeys open and inclusive for all travelers, and that includes keeping single supplements as low as possible and waiving the fees throughout the year – not just at the last minute.”
International Expeditions first began waiving single supplement fees on their most popular small-ship cruise programs in 2012, and offers cabins with no single supplements on their two Amazon cruise itineraries and Galapagos cruises.
Travelers journey from French-influenced Cienfuegos to Havana aboard the Panorama on IE’s new Cuba Voyage. In addition to a walking tour of 500-year-old Trinidad, along the way, guests stop on the island of Cayo Largo, home to a sea turtle breeding center, the remote western Guanahacibes Peninsula, and venture into the Viñales Valley. Other highlights of this people-to-people itinerary include learning about Cuban medicine and mass communication, dance lessons, local choir and theater performances, pottery workshops, visits to museums, and calling on artists in their studios.
The four isolated islands of Raja Ampat — Misoool, Salawati, Batanta, and Wiageo — are surrounded by over 1,500 small islands and cays, as well as the world's most biodiverse marine region. During International Expeditions’ new 17-day Raja Ampat adventure, featuring a cruise aboard the nine-cabin WAOW, guests enjoy naturalist-guided snorkeling, diving, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding excursions among waters boasting more recorded fish, coral (75 percent of all known coral species!) and mollusk species than anywhere else on Earth.
Guests on IE’s Zambia safari travel deep into the country’s unspoiled parks, where their small group of no more than 10 travelers will be among the only visitors. In two premier national parks — South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi — the wildlife-viewing and adventure come alive during daily game drives, bush walks, nighttime game drives, and canoe excursions in remote areas.
