What Can I Do On-board?

Expecting a ferry sailing to be dull and boring? Think again!

For many, mini cruises are more about experiencing the joy of sailing rather than speed.

It's a fact that flying to your European destination is substantially quicker but we think mini cruises are way more fun!

Whether you prefer watching the waves roll by as your ship cruises the sea or if you prefer to be doing or seeing something, you are catered for.

Food & Drink

Food and drink on-board is of a very high standard. Whether you are after a quiet tipple, a quick bite to eat, a five star meal or something to keep the kids quiet, you will find a broad range of dining and drinking options aboard. Facilities vary from ship to ship but you can expect a bar, a full service restaurant and a buffet on most vessels.


All mini-cruise operators take entertainment very seriously and offer production shows, musical entertainers and comedians to excite and amuse.

Some services offer discos, an on-board cinema and even a casino so you can try your chances with Lady Luck.

If you need to stay connected whilst away, most ships offer a WiFi service which you can use with your laptop or smartphone.

Kids Clubs

Don't worry about your kids getting board. Most services offer a kids club where fully trained cruise staff will take good care of your children ensuring they are not bored in the least. Kids clubs are a great way for your child to mingle with other children making new friends and having their own experience aboard the ship.


Surely no trip is complete without a bit of retail therapy?! Most ships have shops on board offering a range of perfumes, alcohol, cigarettes and gifts and souvenirs. Grab a bargain onboard while you can.
