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 have two passionate local leaders, who will give 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 including a local chef. Best of all you can reach places bigger ships can't.
