Small ship cruising! Do you pine for the open ocean but can’t stand the thought of all-night parties, thousand-seat dining rooms or lining up for every event or onboard attraction, then perhaps small ship cruising is for you. Not all cruise ships are vast, floating resorts. A up and coming cruising niche revolves around small ships — a wide-ranging group that includes yachts, rugged expedition ships, riverboats and classic sailing schooners — where guest counts range to a maximum or 300, as opposed to 3000 of your fellow travelers.
Beyond offering a cozier atmosphere, the small size of these cruise ships creates a whole different experience, both onshore and onboard.
