Small Ships - Huge Choice

The largest collection of small ship cruises worldwide. Around 100 small ships that sail to most corners of the world's seas and oceans.

There was a time, not long ago, when almost all cruises were just that, a cruise past wonderful destinations. The last twenty years or so has witnessed an immense and wonderful evolution in small ship cruising and today travellers have thousands of options. If you share our philosophy and have decided that resort style vessels accommodating thousands of passengers is definitely not your type of holiday, then let us help you choose a perfect small ship cruise holiday. You will discover that the majority of our ships range from only 8 to 150 passengers. So no round the clock buffets and long lines waiting to pay extra for your shore excursion, just good old-fashion exploring a destination with a small group of inquiring travellers.

Gone are the endless queues. We only promote voyages for real travellers with carefully selected specialist cruise operators that do not cut corners in their quest to ensure your onboard experience is of the highest quality. Travel in an intimate, safe and comfortable environment. Travel to enjoy, but also to see and experience, learn as you travel and do all this in the company of like-minded travellers. Our small ships offer comfortable to luxurious accommodation and many other amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible but above all else they are designed to take you to extraordinary places and give you amazing experiences.

Small Ship Cruising


The Small Cruise Ship Collection was established and is operated by expedition leaders, travel professionals and cruise enthusiasts. We are not just another sales company but rather a travel company of experienced specialists in expedition and small ship cruising. This is our passion, what we know best and in turn what we recommend for our guests. After more than 20 years creating and leading expeditions aboard many of the ships found on this website and in our brochure, we have learned first-hand what works and what doesn’t, our experience makes us uniquely placed to find the voyage that best suits you.
