Flat Beds Tour + Cruise

Small Ship Cruising

After a low-key cruise? Small ship cruises carry just a few hundred passengers, making for a more intimate and luxurious experience. If you're after a focus on your destination, rather than non-stop action and entertainment onboard, small ship cruising is a must. With options from Antarctica cruises to river cruises in Europe, there are cruise and tour options to suit every traveler.

Our team of experts here at Flat Beds Tour + Cruises are available to package your small cruising experience with return airfares. This allows you to unlock exclusive discounts you won't find anywhere online.
