Small Ship Cruises: Are They Right For You?
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Heidi Sarna is co-founder with Ted Scull of quirkycruise.com. She focuses on small ship cruises of under 300 people -- on lakes, rivers, and oceans around the world. We discuss all aspects of small vessels, and by the end of the episode you'll get an idea if this special, more intimate kind of cruising is for you.

Heidi tells why she started quirkycruise.com. She defines "small ship," which is a relative term. She goes on to explain the pluses and minuses of small-ship cruising, and  discusses itineraries, amenities and itineraries from sailing ships to expedition ships, around the world.

And as on all episodes of Places I Remember, she ends with a favorite memory.
