The yacht cruise experience

Variety Cruises is one of the largest Small Ship Cruise Companies in the world, with a fleet of 11 motor vessels, mostly carrying an average of just 50 passengers, each with a friendly and relaxed ambience on board.

Additionally, sister company Seafarer offers the chance to learn to sail and book sailing yachts by cabin or full charter.

The stylish small motor yachts of Variety Cruises offer a winning formula with great cuisine and superb island-hopping itineraries that access the little ports and marinas denied to large cruise ships.  On board, everybody eats together and you can take a dip from the swimming platform.

Seafarer brings sailing yacht experiences into reach, whether learning the ropes, chartering your own boat or booking a cabin with a professional skipper on board.

Why Travel with Variety Cruises?

The historic areas Variety Cruises visit offer fascinating excursion possibilities in smaller groups guided by carefully selected local experts. 

Variety put a huge focus on sustainability and the environment. Single use plastic has already been eliminated from the fleet and crews regularly take part in beach clean-ups.
