Reasons to cruise for 3 nights

Spend more time on your ship on a three-night mini cruise.

Three-night itineraries often include either two ports of call, or one port of call and a relaxing day at sea.

For an authentic cruise holiday experience, choose the single port and sea day combination. Sail from Southampton and you will spend the day on land exploring a destination usually in France, Belgium, or the Channel Islands. Then, spend the sea day relaxing or exploring your ship in more detail.

A three-night mini cruise feels less rushed than its two-night counterpart and is ideal if you are considering booking a longer cruise but are unsure about life at sea.
