• Small Ship Cruises

Discover immersive destinations on our small ship cruise journeys

For those looking for a more authentic experience, away from the well-worn travel routes in an intimate atmosphere with fewer passengers, small ship cruising will fit the bill. It has little in common with those massive ships that are more like floating hotels. You’ll sail on a sleek, yacht-like vessel with the ability to reach those fabulous uninhabited islands and tiny, out of the way ports, discovering those true hidden gems. Cruises typically accommodate no more than 100 guests, allowing the crew to provide a more personal experience. Stops are often made in secluded bays for swimming the crystal-clear blue waters as well as for exciting excursions on land.

While these vessels may be small, there is plenty to do while onboard, from relaxing on a comfy lounger surrounded by the scenery to taking advantage of luxurious amenities like a Jacuzzi. Your evenings can be spent socializing with your fellow passengers and instead of dining at a buffet with the same food you could eat back home, you’ll be able to ample the local fare at each new port.

If you’d like to spend time on land too, we can easily add pre- or post-tours, or offer a wide range of suggested extension options.
