Small Ship Cruising

Posted May 11th, 2012

Have you ever gone on a small ship cruise? Here are five reasons why it may interest you and get you thinking about your next cruise holiday!

1. Ease of Travel:

When it comes to travelling to multiple destinations, it can sometimes seem like more hassle than what it’s worth. But, with a small cruise ship, the cruise itself is as desirable as the destination – it becomes an adventure! Each night, be lulled to sleep by the ocean and awake refreshed, with a brand new view outside your stateroom. And, with small ships welcoming between 147 and 311 fellow cruisers, you will soon forget you ever had to wait in line for anything.

2. Travel in Style:

Get that personal “red carpet” treatment. With small cruise ships, the crew to passenger ratio is often 1:2. That means the crew members know your name, they know your preferences and they can often anticipate your desires before even you know you want another drink. Furthermore, bartenders and kitchen staff are catering to a much smaller crowd, ensuring efficiency, quality and attention to detail. And of course, there are the added perks of luxurious amenities.

3. Unique Ports and Itineraries:

Small cruise ships have an incredible amount of flexibility. Ever thought you could cross the Panama Canal on a cruise ship and then visit the incredible, mostly uninhabited San Blas Islands, where Kuna Indians live today as they did hundreds of years ago? Small cruise ship you will be able to see the world differently.

4. Affordability:

They really are affordable, as  many of the expenses are often included upfront. So, once you’ve planned your trip, you will have a really good sense of exactly what you will be spending and can budget accordingly.

5. Social Convenience:

With fewer guests on board, small cruise ships offer an ideal social experience. It’s easy to make life-long friends, and get to know them over a quiet dinner or a few drinks. Alternatively, a small cruise ship also offers more of an element of privacy, with the smaller numbers on board.
