Discover the big benefits of our small-ship cruises
Our sister ships offer the best of both worlds. All the luxury of a boutique hotel, but with views from your balcony that change every day. It means you’ll wake up in an exciting new destination, just waiting to be explored.
These elegant smaller ships carry no more than 987 guests on each cruise. It means a less-crowded atmosphere, and high levels of personal service with one member of staff for every two guests.
