Small Cruise Ship Disadvantages

Smaller cruise ships carrying from 120 to 1,800 passengers are ideal for finding your way around quickly and not having to deal with long lines. These ships often have a more intimate, home-like feeling. But they also come with some drawbacks.

1) Less elaborate facilities.

2) Fewer onboard activity options.

3) Fewer children aboard (if you're traveling with youngsters).

4) More older passengers (if you're young).

5) Less of a party atmosphere (if you like activity).

6) Dining with the same people (if assigned seating).
