Short Break Cruises

If you are new to cruising or are simply looking for a short-break, then our selection of carefully hand-picked Short Break Cruises (or mini-cruises) is sure to have exactly what you are looking for.

We have a wide range of itineraries available – everything from the Caribbean to a European city break – across a wide variety of cruise ships, with durations ranging from 1 to 7-nights.

A short cruise is the ideal opportunity to experience everything that ship life has to offer: restaurants, bars, kids clubs, fitness centre, spa and entertainment. You may lack on destinations on some itineraries, but if you are unsure if cruising is for you, then it’s your perfect chance to really immerse yourself in your floating surroundings.

All of the major cruise lines offer short break voyages, including SeaDream Yacht Club, Cunard, P&O Cruises, Fred. Olsen Cruise Line, Crystal Cruises, Star Clippers, Holland America Line and Silversea.

Destinations are incredibly varied on short break cruises and you even have the option of sailing roundtrip from the UK. Norway, Europe and the British Isles are popular for UK departing itineraries and they often leave from several UK ports, including Southampton, Dover and Newcastle. If you would like to venture to somewhere a little more exotic, then you can board a flight to places such as the Caribbean, Asia, Mediterranean, or even the Seychelles and enjoy a few nights of rest and relaxation aboard a luxury cruise ship.

Our selection of short break cruises is offered across a wide variety of ships, including a four masted barquentine, the largest cruise ship ever built for the British cruising market, a luxurious six-star yacht and a small, traditional cruise ship. Whatever vessel and itinerary you are looking for we are sure you will find it on our website.
