  • If you are traveling alone and you allow us to find you a roommate, you don't have to pay the $900 single supplement. If you wish to have your own room and you are not open to the idea of rooming with another passenger, then $900 is what you pay for single supplement fee.

If you sign up after the final payment due date or at the last minute, you must pay the entire cost of the trip immediately.
