Mini Cruises

Mini 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.
