As you sail this short, yet relaxing and rewarding late-spring journey along England’s south coast and to beautiful, somewhat remote islands, you’re in for a memorable Bank Holiday break. Visiting Cornish shores, you’ll delight in views of the Fal Estuary’s gorgeous landscapes and stop overnight in Falmouth. Balmoral docks close to the centre of this charming town; you’ll be perfectly placed to explore, find somewhere to enjoy a traditional cream tea and scone or two, and take in highlights such as Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum. Falmouth is also your gateway to the famous Eden Project, the scenic Lizard Peninsula, and Lost Gardens of Heligan.[ReadMore]

Off the coast of Cornwall, the scenic Isles of Scilly await you. Not only will you get to admire the beauty of the islands from your smaller ship, but a visit to St Mary’s affords an opportunity to experience it ashore too. You’ve time to explore the landscapes of Scilly’s largest island, with its picturesque countryside interiors, charming little towns and inviting coastline, where golden-sand beaches and rippling waters await. What’s more, you’ll experience scenic cruising by the Channel Islands, and revel in the beauty of British coastline, all from the comfort of your smaller cruise ship.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile
