Small Ship Experience

See what sets us apart in the cruising industry

Small ships,
smaller groups

Our small ships range in size from just 24 to 98 passengers. You’ll step ashore and explore with the help of your local Program Director in groups of no more than 25 travelers. We are the only cruise line to provide these regional experts dedicated to your group throughout the entire trip.

Step into the heart of coastal communities

Explore your destination on a deeper, more authentic level, experiencing the hidden gems that other American travelers miss. In each place you go, you’ll learn about the local culture from those who work, learn, and live there.

The leader in
solo-friendly travel

We offer FREE or low-cost Single Supplements on every cruise vacation and FREE Single Supplements on every trip extension. With dedicated Program Directors and regional offices nearby for support, you’ll always feel safe and secure.

Gain unique access
to remote ports

The size of our ships allows us to slip into more remote ports and harbors, away from larger cruise ships. On some cruises, we will use a tender, or Zodiac craft, to reach the shore in some of these ports, allowing us to get even closer to the heart of the places we visit.
