Short Cruises

Sometimes, you just can’t take an entire week off for a cruise. Or maybe you don’t want to spend the entire week on board the ship, because you want to save some of that time to be in the port city, visiting family or friends, or exploring all the tourist destinations. We understand. Short cruises may be all you can do. But not all small ship cruises do short cruises. What short cruises are available are becoming more rare, as cruise lines have found it simpler to employ a week-long cruise system of Saturday or Sunday departures. So if you prefer a 4 to 6 night cruise, book these in advance! They have limited departures, and will sell out quickly. Give our agents a call to book your short cruise right away: 800-578-1479.
