No matter your cruising experience, consider a small ship. Having fewer people offers unique opportunities while at sea.
Lines – Frustrated by queues for food, disembarking, and … everything? Smaller boats equal shorter – even nonexistent – lines.
Staff – Whether you are in the dining room or at the information desk, a smaller staff-to-guest ratio on a small boat offers individualized attention.
Sea Days – Deck chairs and towels are no longer a commodity for only those who get up at the crack of dawn.
Docking – Small boats can get in where big ships can’t, so you can avoid crowds at port, too.
