A mini cruise with the same magical feeling

If you're looking to enjoy a cruise with Ambassador Cruise Line but don't have time for a long trip, then our range of mini cruises are perfect for you. Our mini cruises are all four days or less, meaning you don't need to worry about being away from home for too long.

Even though you are only away for up to four days doesn't mean you can't visit some magical locations on your short break. Head on an Amsterdam or Netherlands mini cruisand meander around the quaint canals, visit the traditional windmills and tulip fields or enjoy a festive markets cruise where you will be able to embrace the Christmas spirit.

Alternatively, if it’s just the cruising experience you want, some of our shortest cruises give you the chance to get on board, enjoy the ship for a night or two and return home without visiting any destinations. Instead of a hotel stay, why not spend a day or two onboard one of our ships and embrace everything that’s great about a cruise holiday?

Although on a short cruise you'll be spending less time travelling than on a traditional cruise break, you'll still get the opportunity to enjoy wonderful destination experiences and the facilities on offer onboard our amazing ships. Our mini cruise deals offer the very best experiences including onboard entertainment, wonderful meals in a selection of amazing restaurants and amazing spa and leisure facilities.
