What are some cruise ships that are smaller? The last cruise I went on was a Regent Seven Seas Cruise and I liked that the ship was small (less than 700). I don't care about ships that have rock climbing walls or ice skating rinks. Regent doesn't offer cruises to the Caribbean less than 10 days from what I've seen. Also something more casual than Regent would be great, and by budget isn't what it used to be so something less expensive. Please no Carnival or Royal Caribbean suggestions. Something with 1000 or less passengers would be great
If you are looking for intermediate pricing and a good value without the "kid stuff", try Holland America. I've been on Regent cruises and they are very nice but the price is not. HAL does have some large ships, but they also offer some with passenger capacity of less than 1,000. My favorite is the Amsterdam ( not the Nieuw Amsterdam). Check out Vacations To Go. I have used them for over ten years and have never had a problem.
