Small Ship Cruises

Enjoy our selection of cruises in Europe and beyond and note, that these are not your typical cruises. Our cruise selection is handpicked with a focus on small boat experiences.

These cruises in addition to the unique life on board, highlight adventure, wildlife, and culture.

Take a winter vacation in Europe and enjoy a Christmas Market Tour, or experience history in a unique way on a WW II-themed cruise as you bike through Holland. Kayak an Alaskan Fjord, snorkel with sea turtles in Hawaii, or glacier hike in Argentina... adventure is its own terrain. Explore!
