Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has reduced the single supplement on more than 20 sailings in 2011 to just 10% - 25% (above the per-person, double-occupancy fare) for Vista, Veranda and Midship Veranda suites.

Initially launched last summer on select 2010 voyages, the line's specially reduced Solo Traveler fares proved such a popular incentive with independent travelers that the company is extending the offer to select 2011 itineraries.

"With special fares like these -- which can be combined with Silver Savings, Free Air and $250 Shipboard Credit offers -- there's no excuse for single travelers to stay at home," said Steve Tucker, Silversea's vice president of field sales for North America. "If you travel on your own, now is the ideal time to finalize your vacation plans for next year and treat yourself to the luxuries of a Silversea voyage."

Silversea's crew-to-guest ratio of nearly one to one ensures single guests will enjoy highly personalized service, warm hospitality, and an ambiance that makes them feel right at home. Also, on several voyages, Gentlemen Hosts will be on board, which is a real plus for single female guests looking for a dining companion or a dance partner.

All-inclusive fares include a spacious, ocean-view suite (most suites feature a private veranda), attentive butler service, complimentary wines and spirits, fine dining, sophisticated enrichment and entertainment programs, and all onboard gratuities.

It may not be redeemed for cash, and any unused portion will be forfeited. Additional restrictions may apply.
