Relaxed, unregimented and club-like. These are a few ways of describing the lifestyle and pace of a small ship cruise. Most notably, the size of a small ship allows for it to dock or anchor in smaller ports that larger ships cannot reach. Additionally, you’ll enjoy a sense of immediacy and familiarity or recognition by staff that may not be as apparent on larger ships. Feel a refined level of service combined with a friendly attitude, creating an informality that is desirable aboard a smaller ship. Enjoy a greater variety of itinerary options. Public areas and staterooms or suites are proportionally spacious and airy for a ship of its size. There are usually more adults-only or adult-centered activities. You’ll feel pampered and indulged while you experience in-depth discovery of the classic destinations and unique places you visit.
