3 Reasons to Take a Small Ship Cruise

I know that many of us are eager to head back to the open water, but maybe a little bit hesitant to set sail on our next vacation. Many of you may be wondering what the new cruise experience will be like.

Rest assured that I’m closely monitoring the policies and procedures of cruise lines as they change. I am confident that those in the cruise industry, including cruise lines, will continue to keep travelers like you and I healthy and safe as we sail the world.

As we look forward to the future of vacations together, experiencing small cruise ships is at the top of my list. Small ships offer a unique cruising experience designed to help us connect with destinations and slow down to enjoy the moment! Read on for my top 3 reasons you should consider one!

#1 Exclusive Access

Small ship cruises usually have the capability to explore destinations and ports where larger ships aren’t able to sail. Paired with the exclusive access to small, private tours in-destination, small ships can play a key role in helping travelers avoid large crowds and long lines.

#2 Personal Service

Cruising on a small ship also offers you very personal service. The staff on small ship cruises also get to know you by name and cater to your needs and wants. They can help you get the most out of your experience by making sure you are taken care of at every turn.

#3 Inclusive Options

Many smaller ship ocean, river & expedition cruises are designed with inclusivity in mind. In some cases, excursions, tours, and even room service are part of the experience. Some ships, like those in the AMAWaterways fleet, provide bicycles to cruisers looking to explore destinations on their own. While these will vary based on the cruise line, inclusive options can save you time and money when it comes to your onboard experience.

And that’s just the beginning. Whether you are thinking a river cruise or as looking to sail the Caribbean in comfort, small ships are an option to consider for your next cruise vacation.
