Mini cruises are the ideal way to take a break from your daily routine and embrace a different lifestyle for a few days.

Mini cruises have a different duration from one night up to five nights, in spite of the short time it is possible to view more than one city and have a fantastic relaxed time. Obviously, your itinerary will be restricted by your preferred departure port.

Mini cruises:  9 times to go

Mini cruises are a way to discover the world on a smaller scale, whereas world cruises offer a long journey around the globe: the two are opposite but they have also different scopes.
So when to go on a mini cruise?

  • First time cruisers: mini cruises offer a taste of the whole cruising experience and therefore you can find out if you love cruises or not
  • Bank holiday or weekends: the bank holiday time is ideal for a quick getaway on a relaxed cruise. The same applies for weekends.
  • Cruising at a budget: lessen the days at sea, and lessen the cost of the cruise, for this reason you may wish to have an extra cruise holiday this year at a cheaper price.
  • Luxury cruises: luxury cruising becomes more affordable when it comes to a shorter trip so you can treat yourself on a five or six-star cruise.
  • Stag and hen do: a mini cruise is ideal also for parties where fun, relaxation and uniqueness are the keywords.
  • Celebrations: for anniversaries, birthdays or other special occasions a river cruise may be the perfect gift for unforgettable moments.
  • River cruises: mini cruises are not necessarily on the deep sea, in fact, many river cruises are short in length so it could be a great experience to try when you do not have many spare days.
  • Cruise whilst on holiday: you can embark on a mini cruise while you are already on holiday in another country. A mini cruise might be a good way to discover less accessible places and enchanting landscapes.
