Small cruise ships are perfect for those who long to explore the world by sea but baulk at the thought of bustling atriums, buffet queues and booming nightclubs. If you’d rather head off the beaten track and discover less-visited hidden gems rather than the congested overcrowded ports frequented on a daily basis by larger cruise ships, then a luxury cruise on a small ship could be just what you’re looking for.

Small ships cruises are all about personalised service, a cosy atmosphere and itineraries which focus on discovering new destinations rather than flashy facilities. Whilst you may not have climbing walls, zip wires and trampoline parks on-board your small ship, you will be able to enjoy gourmet meals, free-flowing wine and excellent enrichment programmes.

Small cruise ships sailing from the UK

There are plenty of small ships across luxury cruise fleets, including Silversea and Seabourn. Many of these also depart from the UK, meaning they are a great choice for cruisers looking for their next getaway. Take a look at our luxury cruises from the UK for a chance to set sail on your next incredible holiday.

Small luxury cruise ships

These small luxury cruise ships each have fewer than 500 passengers:

Where can you sail on a small ship cruise?

One advantage of smaller cruise ships is that due to their size, they are able to slip into some of the most remote ports of call. On-board the world's best small luxury cruise ships, you can expect to experience some of the world’s most remote islands, hidden harbours and secluded coves. You’ll have access to many of the more elite destinations too, including the treasures of the Mediterranean, Asia and elsewhere, offering you the chance to delve into fascinating cultures or simply enjoy the spectacular unspoiled scenery. Alternatively, small ship cruises from Southampton offer a convenient way to start your luxury cruise holiday.

Expedition cruises

Many small cruise ships are expedition ships, with reinforced hulls to slice through ice and the ability to sail close to shore and dock in the smallest of ports. The aim of expedition cruising is to head off the beaten track and experience the culture, landscape and wildlife of rarely-explored regions. Destinations include the Galapagos, Australia, the South Pacific, the Arctic and the Antarctic. If you’d like to embark on the voyage of a lifetime, discovering some of the planet’s most remote destinations, take a look at our selection of expedition cruises and their small ships:

  • Celebrity Cruises – Celebrity Flora, Celebrity Xpedition, Celebrity Xploration
  • Seabourn – Seabourn Venture
  • Silversea – Silver Galapagos, Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud, Silver Origin
