Small Ship Cruising


North America encompasses a diverse collection of waterways that includes mighty rivers, lakes and coastlines.

North American Highways recommend a variety of cruise lines that provide the small ship cruising holiday experience which focuses more on your destination. Local guides are on-board many of the trips, providing expert information and allowing you to appreciate fully your surroundings in a relaxed atmosphere.
Alaska is always a firm favourite with our customers, and with good reason. The best way to see the ‘Great Land’ is by small ship, allowing you access to areas large cruise liners cannot. The ice-bound landscapes are spectacular. More than 400 species of wildlife can be found from bald eagles soaring through the skies to whales gliding through the icy waters. The true entertainment is provided by the animals of this amazing part of the world. The stage is the unrivalled rugged landscapes and blue tipped glaciers. We believe there is no need for distractions from the beautiful vistas you will encounter as you glide through the pristine waters of the last frontier.

We feature expeditions to the Far North to the Midnight Sun of the Arctic where longer daylight hours provide excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Polar bears, walrus and bowhead whales are not unusual to spot and the evenings are illuminated with the phenomenon of the Northern Lights. Visit mystical Newfoundland and Labrador in Eastern Canada with its folklore and friendly locals and visit early settlements of Viking explorers.

Cruise the serene waterways of the lazy Mississippi River in the Deep South where you can visit New Orleans or enjoy the rich history and beautiful architecture of the south-eastern US Intracoastal Waterway incorporating Charleston and Savannah. New England’s Atlantic Coast offers a varied and colourful landscape and fascinating ports of call. Charming Cape Cod and Rhode Island display the many lighthouses that dot the coastlines and your vessel allows you to stop off at towns full of craft and antique shops.

The rivers of the northwest in the states of Washington and Oregon pass through intense green landscapes, sparkling waterfalls and lush coastal forests. Cruise the mighty Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers through Kentucky, Wyoming and Pennsylvania during ‘The Fall’ and soak up scenes of blazing colour along the shore.


'Upscale but not uptight' is how this luxury cruise line describes itself. With maximum passenger capacity for 700 guests and the majority of cabins with balconies this multi- award winning cruise line boasts the highest standard of cruising excellence. The six star fleet's facilities include complimentary beverages, 24 hour room service and a refrigerator replenished daily with soft drinks, beer and bottled water.
