Adventure Cruising

Set sail on an immersive small-ship Adventure Cruise Experience

On an Imaginative Traveller’s Adventure Cruise, you’ll be part of a small group (fewer than 50 passengers) exploring ports and islands and experiencing the best of land and sea. Our groups are small enough that you can really get to know your fellow travellers, as well as the locals when you drop anchor and go ashore, providing an authentic local experience. You’ll be joined on board by two passionate local leaders, who will show you around, give you lots of tips, and provide a true insight into the local way of life, while the ship’s friendly crew will make sure you have all the comforts you need to enjoy your time on board.

Reach places bigger ships can’t

Our small ships let you access all the nooks and crannies that bigger cruise ships can’t, whether that’s an abandoned ghost village on the island of Kayakoy, Dalmatia’s little coves and coastal towns, or the medley of laidback islands between Penang and Phuket.

Authentic local dining

Get to grips with the local cuisine as prepared by your onboard local chef, or head ashore and dine with the locals. You’ll have plenty of time to explore at your own leisure, giving you the perfect balance of being with a group and a bit of alone time.

Responsible Travel

The world’s an amazing place and we want to do our bit to keep it that way. That’s why we choose to travel responsibly, giving back to the communities we visit and helping to create a sustainable world for our children.
