Mini cruises, also known as taster cruises, are cruise holidays of five nights or fewer. They are ideal for people who have never cruised before and want to get a taste of the experience. Mini cruises are also a great way to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary without being away from home for too long. On-board your ship you can try out the on-board restaurants and get a taste of the excellent cuisine on offer, enjoy a relaxing spa treatment or take in a show.
Mini cruises are available with many of the world's most popular cruise lines. Great choices for first-time cruisers include Royal Caribbean, whose ships have fantastic facilities that the whole family will love, and P&O Cruises, who offer classic cruises aimed solely at British travellers.
If you're planning just a few days away, you're probably interested in mini cruises sailing from the UK. The port of Southampton is the UK's biggest cruise port by some way, and you'll find a great selection of short cruises sailing from here. Other ports for mini cruising from include Newcastle, Hull, Dover, Tilbury, Rosyth, Cardiff, Liverpool and Bristol.
