Fran Golden, Special for USA TODAY1:15 p.m. EDT September 27, 2013 Tauck is dropping the dreaded single supplement on lower-level cabins on its Europe river cruises for all of 2014, making it more affordable for solo travelers to cruise. The savings is 50%, with solo travelers paying the same as what someone sharing a cabin would pay. For those who want fancier cabins, Tauck is taking $1,000 off the regular, double-person price for solo travelers booking Category 4 or 5 cabins (with French balconies) on 28 departures in Europe. The company made a similar offer on 2013 itineraries. "By eliminating or reducing the single supplement on so many of our trips, we're really making great journeys for solo travelers even better," said Tauck CEO Dan Mahar, in a prepared statement. Tauck's new riverboats debuting next year, the 130-passenger Savor and Inspire, will provide additional options for those traveling alone. Each boat will have four dedicated 150-square-foot cabins for solo travelers, the line said. The company has also targeted solo travelers with a dedicated Solo Travel Forum and Solo Travel section on its website.
