This type of cruise is not for everyone. It is for the person who enjoys out of the way places with distinct itineraries. The ships are smaller, therefore, can maneuver in more difficult and tight areas, pull into smaller harbors and go to more exotic locales, unlike their larger counterparts.

It is for people who value their privacy, and prefer more intimate settings. Smaller ships usually accommodate a few hundred passengers, some only a dozen, compared to thousands on the big mega ships. It is for passengers with a discerning palate, because the cuisine is truly a work of art, especially on the luxury lines and the river barges (the latter ones are renowned for their gourmet chefs).

With small ship cruising, a whole other world opens up and is ready to be discovered.
