Braemar cruising the Corinth Canal
Small ships for a big world

Whoever said that “bigger is better”?

Not us.

While the cruise industry has gone for bigger ships brimming with more and more people, we’ve always believed that small is better.

Because smaller ships bring big benefits.

They mean we can treat passengers as guests, like the family-run business we are.

They can dock at smaller ports, much closer to the parts of our planet we’re most passionate about showing.

They mean we can avoid overcrowding, both aboard and ashore, so our guests can disembark easily and enjoy the freedom to see, explore and experience.

They mean we can offer warmer, more personal levels of service.

It would be easy to scale up, cram in and cut corners, but we never will.

Because to us, the size we are is the size we should be.

Get closer to the destination

Get on and off more easily

Kinder to the environment
