Short Breaks

Even if you are short on time you can still embark on an adventure with one of our mini cruises. Ranging from a whirlwind overnight stay to a rejuvenating weekend away, our flexible range of cruise breaks will whisk you away to your dream destinations with a variety of holidays around the world.

Whether you’re searching for a chic city break in the UK or would like to explore further afield in Europe, our short cruises deliver all the luxury of a longer cruise, while also immersing you in beautiful destinations in a shorter period of time, be it Amsterdam or Dublin. With our wide selection of cruise special offers, you are sure to find the perfect itinerary for you, at the best rates.

Our Mini Cruise Experience

Our mini cruises range from one night to as long as five nights – however long you want your short break to be. If you’re after a cruise holiday for two nights/three days, one of our weekend cruises is perfect for you, and, as we depart from ports including Newcastle, London Tilbury and Hull, it couldn’t be any easier to get away for time-limited travellers.

By booking a cruise holiday with Cruise & Maritime Voyages, you will be able to explore many destinations aboardour smaller to mid-size ships, which provide a more intimate and friendly experience, in locations which larger cruise liners can find difficult to reach. High standards of service are our priority on voyages both short and long, and the facilities anddining optionson board ships such as Marco Polo and Columbus are second to none, with renowned restaurants, fantastic nightly entertainment, and even spa facilities on-board.
