Small Ship Cruising Tours

Save up to 40% on Small Ship Cruising Tours

Small ship cruises take travelers to destinations that big ships cannot visit due to size restrictions, such as to the exotic Galapagos Islands, small ports along the Mediterranean and Adriatic and island hopping in Greece to name a few. Small ships are able to maneuver in small coves and channels, and can dock at more intimate ports, making for a fascinating travel experience. Small ship cruising is also perfect for travelers who want to visit bigger destinations, but want more personalized, one on one service onboard. While small ships might not feature the same activities on board, they do offer a relaxed and intimate experience for cruisers.
