Mini Cruises

Mini cruises are cruises 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. 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, departing both from the UK and from destinations further afield. The following cruise lines specialise in mini cruises:

  • P&O Cruises
  • Royal Caribbean Cruises
  • Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
  • Princess Cruises
  • Celebrity Cruises
  • Cruise & Maritime Voyages
  • Cunard
  • Norwegian Cruise Line

P&O mini cruises

Short cruises with P&O will transport you to iconic cities like Bruges, St. Peter Port, Amsterdam and Hamburg. Explore iconic historical and cultural highlights while enjoying the delicious dining, West End entertainment and exciting activities on-board your P&O Cruises ship.

Royal Caribbean mini cruises

Royal Caribbean offers two types of mini cruises: sampler cruises, and longer mini cruises of four or five nights. Sampler cruises are short, two-night escapes allowing you to discover the amenities on-board your ship while still enjoying shore excursions when you arrive in port. Longer mini cruises offer even more immersive excursions in a wider range of cities on your itinerary.

Mini cruises from Southampton

These voyages offer something for every traveller, whether this is your first cruise or your fifteenth. You can reach the coastlines of the Baltics, the Western Mediterranean and beyond on mini cruises from Southampton, allowing you to explore ports like Rouen, Oslo and Hamburg.

Mini cruises from Newcastle

Newcastle is the gateway to mini cruise destinations in Norway and Scotland. Sail with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and see the spectacular scenery of Bergen, Hardangerfjord and, back in the UK, the Orkney Islands. For something completely different, embark on a party cruise with Cruise & Maritime Voyages which includes a five course dinner, cabaret entertainment in the Lounge and a late night disco.
