I almost always travel alone and meet wonderful couples - the man "insists" on buying drinkgs night after night. I usually tip off the waiter that "this round's on me" before I sit down to join them. If that fails, I always buy them something on shore - a bottle of their favorite liquor or something I think they might enjoy.
Some nights I order a bottle of champagne after dinner and have my new friends enjoy it with me.
