New Era of Boutique Cruising

Smaller ships, more intimate spaces and unique ports, you'll truly feel like you are staying in a boutique hotel.

Book by Mar 31, 2020

The term boutique cruising often refers to smaller ships that will take you on a unique journey, visiting smaller ports that the large ships can’t access. On board smaller ships you will find cozy intimate spaces, exceptional personalized service and wonderful culinary experiences. Whether you choose an expedition cruise to a remote destination or a voyage visiting quieter ports in well-known vacations spots, your options are endless. Think of small villages along the Italian coastline or exploring lush rainforests of South America’s Amazon rainforest. Small cruise ships such as river cruises can be great options when searching for your boutique cruise line.


Here are 3 things to think about to when deciding if small ship cruising is right for you.

  • Are you looking for a cruise that can navigate tighter waterways,  drop anchor in off-the-beaten-path ports or deliver you directly to city centers so you can spend more time immersed in a destination?
  • Do you enjoy cabaret and lounge style entertainment? 
  • Would you prefer a more intimate ship that offers shorter walks to your stateroom, to grab a cup of coffee or to debark for exploring shoreside. 


Here are our top 3 picks for boutique cruising experiences
