There’s a new ship in town and we had the opportunity to experience a cruise on her recently. The Island Passage is in its inaugural year and operates out of Auckland, New Zealand. Its regular cruising ground is the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, a broad area around Auckland Harbor, an area rich in scenic beauty and nature with numerous inhabited and uninhabited islands.
Island Passage, a 24-passenger ship, is operated by Island Escape Cruises with 3, 4, and 5-night itineraries in the Marine Park. We were aboard for a special fishing excursion so fishing was the main activity on each of the days.

Small Ships vs. Big Ships

A Different Kind of Cruise!

Why Small Ship Cruises? We love small ships because they go into the smaller ports where the big ships can’t. We love them because you get to experience the culture and the people of the destination not just the tourist areas. The small ship cruise offers an intimate cruising experience. You can see the land and wildlife up close and personal. You get to know officers and crew and guest lecturers and form a bond with fellow passengers. will help you filter through all the choices. We have first-hand knowledge of the cruise lines and have cruised with most of them. Browse through our website to find the destination and ship that you like best, then call us toll-free at 1-888-492-0225 and we will help arrange a memorable cruise

Alaska Small Ship Cruise Roundup

The 2015 Alaska small ship cruise season is underway with travelers

enjoying more ships and trips than ever before. Like migratory whales,

small ships from all over the world converge on Alaska’s coastal waters

each summer. Small ships are perfectly suited to let travelers to experience

nature, history and culture up close. With more coastline than the lower 48

combined, much of it calm and protected, Alaska is an ideal location for

small ship cruising. These waterways were pioneered by small ships and

some operators have decades of experience showing travelers the beauty

and wildlife of Alaska.
