Cruising is my jam!

SMALL SHIP CRUISES
While large ships come with certain advantages, some cruisers prefer the intimacy, personalized service, and more destination-focused itineraries of a smaller vessel. Cruise ships and yachts, each with a passenger capacity of under 1,000 guests can get to smaller ports inaccessible to larger ships and offer a more social atmosphere where it’s easier to get to know your fellow guests. It also gives the guests uncommon access right to the heart and soul of a destination... sail to some of the world's most beautiful ports of call as you seek out hidden harbors and island getaways where big ships don't go... and delight in moments both at sea and ashore as you experience rich cultures and indescribable exotic lands.
Everybody is talking about river cruising right now and it is one of the best ways to explore a new destination. It has been said that you get a very different outlook on life from traveling and river cruising offers just that--a deeper, destination-focused experience while maximizing your leisure time. River cruising is for people who are looking for something new, a chance to experience the world from a different perspective which a smaller ship can provide with world-class ambiance and warm, friendly service. It gives the traveler the opportunity to connect with others, have an authentic cultural encounter, and learn about different places and people and is especially perfect for those interested in destination-focused travel.
A new era of travelers is finding that smaller ships with fewer passengers, more active excursions that highlight nature and the outdoors, and environmentally friendly practices are the experience they’re really after. Welcome to the world of expedition cruises! For travelers with a sense of adventure (and ticking off that bucket list), expedition cruises are an effective way of getting to the planet’s most remote corners. While Antarctica and the Arctic have become favorite destinations for this type of cruise---the Galapagos, Patagonia and Greenland, Scotland, and Iceland are also becoming very popular.
