Cruising and in particular ‘Small ship cruising’ is something we are very passionate about at House of Travel Ferrymead. Unpacking once and exploring diverse environments from the comfort of your stateroom, small ships mean getting up close and personal with a destination, often getting into more intimate locations, more time ashore, smaller groups of travellers and often very luxurious vessels with an expedition aspect and feel. Securing a cabin on a cruise well in advance can form the building block of your future adventure. Believe it or not cruising sells from the ‘top down’ – that is the best cabins always go first, and bookings are already now open for 2018. We are excited to present to you our picks for some exciting adventures for 2017 and 2018 – but rest assured small ships mean less cabins so hurry and get in now to avoid disappointment and start planning your travels with us now!
