Small Ship Cruising

Small ship cruising is a style of travel that allows you to see the world from a new perspective.

Ships range in all shapes and sizes. Each ship is slightly different offering its own set of benefits. Allow me to help you choose the best fit for you.

With small ship cruising, very few destinations are off the map. Small ship cruising allows you to navigate areas that are otherwise impenetrable.

My name is Jennifer. Here is my story.

Embark, unpack and then sit back and enjoy. Allow the ship crew to take care of you. Once onboard, we’ve got you covered.

Small ship cruising can take you to all seven continents. 

Beyond Cruising ~ Featured Trips

Family Safaris

While there is nothing wrong with spending a week at Disney's Animal Kingdom, exposing your children to a real African safari is a memory that your family will keep for a lifetime.

Walking Holidays

For You

Choose one of the many excursions on land either as a complement to a cruise or as a holiday all on its own.

At minimum, consider adding a couple of days prior to embarkation to orient yourself and add a buffer of security.

Allow me to recommend touring options that match your preferences or opt for something completly customized.


There are a host of travel programs geared for solo travellers that offer a sense of comraderie and the feeling of safety that group travel provides.

Let's choose
the best
small ship cruise
for you.

With so many travel experiences to choose from, it can be overwhelming. Once we’ve discussed the options, you’ll come away feeling confident that you’ve made the best choice that fits both your travel style and budget.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade windes in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.
