Mid-sized Cruise Ships

Small ships
1,000 - 2,400
Mid-sized ships in terms of cruising are cruise ships that carry between 1,000 and 2,400 passengers. Not so long ago these were the largest passengers ships at seas, but are now seen as a more refined option when compared to the super liners of today. Mid-sized cruise ships vary Hurtigruten's 1,000 passenger ships, that sail up and down the Norwegian coastline delivering goods, post and passengers as well as offering a cruising experience, to P&O Cruises ever popular Arcadia, offering 4* British-style cruising, of Celebrity Cruises recently upgraded Millennium class ships.

Mid-sized ships offer many of the benefits of being onboard a larger ship. There is usually more choice and facilities onboard than the smaller ships, such as multiple speciality restaurants, fully functioning spas and choice of lounges and bars. There is also usually an onboard theatre and even a large lounge suited to offering light entertainment, such as comedy shows or bingo. The theatre onboard will usually be filled with West End and Broadway-style productions.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
