Mini Cruises

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.

Which cruise lines offer mini cruises?

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. 

Where can I sail from?

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.

Can I get away for the weekend?

Yes! Many people just want a weekend break and a mini-cruise over a weekend is a great way to enjoy a European city break with all of the luxury and convenience of a cruise holiday. Choose from 2-night, 3-night, 4-night or 5-night cruises.
