Small Ship Cruises
If you love to be on the water but hesitate to board a cruise ship with up to 6000 passengers, now is the time to discover small ship cruising. With a guest capacity ranging between 34 and 350 guests, smaller ships offer a more intimate experience and the opportunity to explore unique locations.
A wide variety of ship and cruising styles are available. Small ships include adventure/expedition ships, sailing ships, coastal cruisers, luxury yachts, and river cruisers.

In some destinations there may be expert lecturers or guides on board.
Whether the allure is to sail on a small ship with an intimate group of like-minded guests, visit unique destinations or experience great adventure, there is a small ship and itinerary for you.
In the US, there is plenty to explore via river cruises, coastal cruises along both coasts, and cruises around the Great Lakes.
We also arrange pre and/or post-cruise stays and excursions.
Keep in mind that with lower guest capacity, small ships often sell out far in advance.
