Small Ship Cruises

Small ship cruises boast a whole range of advantages:

  • Intimate atmosphere
  • Personalized service
  • Destination-focused itineraries

So, if you are longing for the ocean but don’t feel like crowds in dining rooms and all-night discos, consider one of the following cruise lines.

Top Cruise Lines


Ponant is all about the French way of life:

  • Delicious food
  • Good wine
  • Enjoying the moment

The cruise line’s yachts are different in size, ranging from mega to very small capacity but are the same in other ways – elegant interior design and intimate atmosphere. The all-inclusive fares are not cheap, however, provide good value for money and are competitive.


Silversea’s expedition ships are the ones to look out for:

  • Silver Cloud
  • Silver Explorer
  • Silver Galapagos
  • Silver Discoverer

What makes Silversea expedition ships so special is the amount of experts and professionals on board – people like Dr. Birute Mary Galdikas will read lectures on wildlife and the Russian Bolshoi Theatre dancers will put on spectacular performances on stage.


Celebrity’s Galapagos Islands ships are perfect for exploring the region in an intimate setting – the biggest ship features just 100 Suites:

  • Celebrity Flora
  • Celebrity Xpedition
  • Celebrity Xploration

The ships boast environmentally friendly features like in-room water filtration systems, which makes them perfect for cruising the fragile environments like the Galapagos.

Top Destinations

Cruising on board a small ship means visiting destinations that lie off the beaten track, so whichever destination you go with, you are bound to discover something new in the region.
