Small Ship

251 – 750 passengers

Small ships are ideal for groups if you are looking for 5 star luxury, without the cost of a full ship charter -however they are fantastic for a full ship charter if you are looking at much larger groups.

The small ships are often more spacious than the Boutique ships, many of them are all Balcony suites, with more on board experiences and things to do.

You can also expect spacious marble bathrooms, often with a separate shower from the bath, and walk-in wardrobes.

The ships are more common to offer alternative dining options rather than just one main restaurant.  If you are travelling as a group this is perfect,  it is also possible to exclusively use one of these venues for your own unique event on board, such as an Awards Presentation or a Gala Dinner.

There are also numerous bars onboard, and like the restaurants, you can use them exclusively for your group if you require a Welcome Cocktail Party.

Many of the Small ship have All Inclusive fares, which include drinks, wifi, and we are starting to see many offering complimentary Shore Excursion.
