Mini Cruises

Are you in between cruises or want to try cruising but think that it might not be for you?  Or maybe you just don’t want to commit to a long sailing.  We have the perfect option for you - a mini cruise.

A mini cruise is a cruise that is 7 days or less and offers excellent value for money.  You can cruise from just two nights and many of the major cruise lines offer these short breaks, including Cunard, Fred. Olsen, Norwegian, P&O Cruises and Royal Caribbean. You get everything that a normal cruise holiday offers but just packed into a shorter space of time.  It suits people new to cruise who would like to get a taste before committing to a longer holiday onboard,  or for people who have already tried a cruise but want to try out a different cruise line and for those who are short on time.

Because of the short nature of a mini cruise, sailing from a UK port such as Southampton or Dover would maximise your holiday time since there is no time wasted by flying out to embarkation ports.

Mini cruises are perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or a city break.  They are also great for celebrations such as hen and stag parties, birthdays and anniversaries or just for an affordable family getaway.

Whether you are a newcomer to cruising, looking for a holiday on a budget or you are just looking for a short break, we can find you a mini cruise to suit you.
