Luxury Small Ship Cruises
The best way to get off the beaten path and find hidden ports and lesser-known treasures that larger ships rarely visit is on one of our luxury small ship cruises.
Small ship cruise holidays are all about intimate encounters, individualised attention, and a laid-back environment. There’s a greater emphasis on exploring the location and engaging with the local culture.
Ranging from authentic sailing experiences, on tall ships, to lavish excursions on some of the most magnificent yachts in the world. Local flavours enhance exceptional culinary flair onboard – there are even opportunities to go shopping with the chefs. Plus, top-notch educational and shore excursion programmes add to the destination experience.See our Luxury Small Ship Cruises
Typically, a “luxury small ship” carries under 700 guests, and has a crew to guest ratio of better than 1.7:1. The ships should also be beautifully designed, feature sumptuous furnishings, eclectic dining options, and superb service.
A luxury small ship cruise could be the experience you’ve been waiting all your life for. Whether you’re looking for an expedition-style ship to take you to the bucket-list sights of the Galapagos, or a spacious yacht exploring the hidden coves and beaches of the Caribbean.
Luxury cruising provides you with a refined experience, but if you’re looking for the ultimate in personalised service, small ship cruising will offer it.
Which Cruise Line Is For You?
For premium tall ship cruises we recommend Windstar Cruises, and their fully-rigged sailing vessels.
Azamara have 4 amazing premium small ships, and nearly all of their cruises include a very special and unique cultural excursion.
For the ultimate luxury small ship cruising experience, Silversea, Seabourn, Seadream and, new in 2023, Explora Journeys have options around the world for you.
