Mini cruises offer everything a traditional cruise offers but packed all into a few days. You’ll still enjoy the delicious food and drink, an array of entertainment and amazing shopping onboard just for a shorter time! A couple of days is still enough time to relax and visit some spectacular destinations. To make your holiday even easier a variety of mini cruises go direct from Southampton, so no flights are needed! No fly cruises are ideal for parties travelling with families where young children are in tow and make the organisation a whole lot easier. You can always extend your stay after the cruise at the final port to gain a couple more days of exploring.
Mini cruises are ideal for first time cruisers as they’re the perfect way to see if the cruising world is for you but we’re pretty sure you’ll get the cruising bug just from a taster.
Mini cruises provide a great setting for hen and stag parties, as well as other celebrations. The stress of organising can be taken off your shoulders with everything planned for you. All you need to decide is which restaurant you fancy eating at and what evening entertainment takes your fancy and your good to go! So if you’re looking for ideas for special birthdays or anniversaries, a short cruise might just be the perfect fit. Many short cruises are on smaller ships which means less passengers and offers for a more intimate voyage which is great for making new travel friends on your cruise. Smaller ships can also often reach ports that larger ships can’t, meaning you can have a more unique itinerary.
Many people often have a misconception when it comes to mini cruises that a lot of time is spent at sea reaching the ports but itineraries are carefully planned to maximise time at ports and less time at sea.
Mini cruises are still jam packed with all the activities of a longer length cruise including all the entertainment available onboard. With daily entertainment, kids clubs, water parks and swimming pools, children will be spoilt for choice each day of your holiday! If you’re looking to take your family away on a budget during the school holidays, but don’t want to settle for anything less than the best, a mini cruise might be the perfect choice for you.
