Why Choose a Small Cruise Ship?

Small cruise ships go where the big ships can’t thanks to shallow drafts and flexible itineraries. Aboard an expedition cruise, you will be among likeminded travelers who are seeking up-close wildlife encounters, sustainable travel experiences, active explorations and education along the way. At AdventureSmith, we encourage you to Think Outside the Boat. Aboard a small ship, you will spend more time off the boat than on, so you can focus on the environment you’re visiting instead of the elaborate onboard amenities found on larger vessels.
