Small Ship Cruises

Small ship cruises offer you the opportunity to enjoy cruising in ways you cannot experience on a large ship. Small ships may have as few as 20 passengers and rarely more than 150. These ships are able to navigate in waters where large ships cannot go and can take you to places that you cannot otherwise visit. The atmosphere is generally more informal and you have the opportunity to get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. What you will not find are huge buffets, swimming pools, casinos or cabaret reviews. What you will find is staff with superior expertise in the history and nature of the places you want to visit. Most of these ships focus on the local nature and wildlife and pride themselves on their sensitivity to the environment.

Scantours offers small ship cruises to many destinations. There are trips to the Arctic, the Antarctic, Scandinavia, through rivers and fjords, around Svalbard (Spitsbergen), in the Mediterranean and the Adriatic Seas. There are also three spectactular trips available on the Noorderlicht, a three masted sailing schooner.

If you are looking for an adventure that you will never forget and that others can only envy, please puruse the many options available.
