Cruise on the wild side with ‘small ships’

Large cruise ships are by and large a catastrophe for the environment, and whilst they may provide enjoyment for many, with up to thousands of fellow passengers on board and offloading at once at tourist destinations, there may be more enjoyable and sustainable on-water travel options to consider. For example, a small ship cruise might just be the answer to finding that delicate balance between luxury, sustainability and adventure.

With small ships and cruises, you can travel in a more sustainable way, and sail to a wider range of places that will explore remote areas not accessible by larger cruise ships. For animal lovers or adventure seekers, small boat cruises allow for a more up-close and personal view of wildlife and hard-to reach areas. A less disruptive and more enjoyable way to meet amazing creatures in natural environments.

A smaller number of guests on board can mean more flexibility within your itinerary and what activities you can partake in, and can make for a more intimate cruising setting, where getting to know the crew and making new friends becomes a possibility. In addition, because there are fewer people onboard, small ship cruises often have a more relaxed and social atmosphere.
