What to expect from Mini Cruises

Mini cruises are an ideal way of getting away for a short break whilst relishing the luxury of a magnificent cruise liner. Mini cruises usually have a duration of 2 to 4 days, but can by definition, last up to 7 days. The majority of the shorter 2 to 4 day cruises depart from the domestic sea ports of the UK. Cruises from Southampton, Liverpool and Dover are available and take in the glorious Mediterranean. Typically visited destinations include the shores of Bruges, Paris, St Peter Port, Amsterdam and Rouen. The longer, 5 to 7 day mini cruises, usually involve a fly cruise structure, which, require travellers to join the cruise at an international port.

The standard facilities and amenities usually found on cruise ships are all available for travellers to enjoy on mini cruises. Fitness centres, spas, pools and climbing walls are all easily accessible along with entertainment such as stage shows, performances, cinemas and casinos. On shore excursion are also offered on mini cruises to enable whistle stop tours and opportunities to experience the local culture.

Who are mini cruises for?

Due to the very nature of these cruises, they are an ideal way to a sample a taste of what cruise holidays have to offer. The format of a short cruise condenses most of the features of a longer cruise in to just a few days, ideal as first time cruises. The convenience of no-fly cruises, present an ideal opportunity for families, where young children are in tow. The relative ease in travelling to the port of departure allows for simple organisation and enables you to start your family cruise holiday right away. Additionally, meals are included on many mini cruises helping to create a hassle free, relaxing atmosphere for parents of young children.

Mini cruises also provide a great setting for hen/stag parties. In fact, many celebrations are well suited to this format of cruising such as birthdays, anniversaries even exam results. With the time constraints and commitments many people now have, these cruises provide a welcome chance to fit in a short, rejuvenating, break with no inconvenience.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
