What's so special about
small ship cruises?

How do I feel about small ship cruises.

Ever notice the difference between passions and likes?

You might like football but love the Dolphins. You liked rock and roll music as a kid but you were absolutely nuts about the Beatles.

That's sort of the story of this site. My wife and I love to travel. We like all kinds of travel - cruises, tours, vacations on the beach. We like them all so much that we opened a travel agency in the mid 1990s.

Cruising is especially nice but, if cruising were football, small ship cruising would be the DOLPHINS.

You read different numbers but it is generally accepted that only 20% of the US population has been on a cruise of any kind. The majority of the group that has cruised couldn't tell you the difference between the cruise they were on and a small ship cruise.

Well, on this site, we aim to fix that.

First, by clicking Cruise Comparison you will get an overview of cruising and how a small cruise ship differs from a large ship.

Next, you can click Cruise Experiences to get a better understanding of the variety that awaits the small ship cruiser.

Now you are ready to explore Costs, Cruise Lines, and the rest of the site.

I would suggest that you identify an area of the world that interests you. By clicking on a destination (or a special category such as Sailing Ships, Expeditions or Luxury Cruises) you will get to see which small ship cruise lines sail that area. Then you can follow the information on the company itself, the ships it operates and, most importantly, the itineraries for the various cruises.

The itineraries are the best way to put yourself on that ship - to see what your experience will really be like.
