Mini Cruises

ENJOY A WONDERFUL FEW DAYS ON BOARD

Get a taste of life at sea on a mini cruise. Whether you’re joining us for an overnight cruise, a weekend cruise, or a few days aboard, it couldn’t be any easier for time-limited travellers to get away.

Take a mini cruise from London Tilbury, Portsmouth, Bristol or another UK port, and make the most of every moment on board Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo or Astoria as you embark on a little adventure with us.

Enjoy lazy days relaxing, great food and first-class entertainment on board and take the time to explore the new cities and sights that your mini cruise reveals. Cruise across the Channel to discover beautiful destinations like Amsterdam, cross the Irish Sea to Belfast and Dublin, or cruise from one part of the UK to another. Even when your mini cruise only lasts a night it can be a unique, laid-back and surprisingly cheap way to visit friends and family in different parts of the country.

With a range of options from one-night mini cruises to five-night mini cruises available, you're sure to find something to suit you. And, whatever you choose, you can be sure that you’ll enjoy all the comfort, care and little luxuries of a longer cruise, just for a shorter period of time.
