Short Haul Cruises In Singapore

Singapore is always vibrantly alive with work and play. This sometimes leaves families with the desire to have a short break away from the hustle and bustle of the Lion City. What better than climbing aboard a large majestic ship or luxurious catamaran to cruise away into the sunset? Singapore is currently one of Asia’s major ports meaning there are many opportunities for families to go on a short cruise from Singapore.

And don’t worry about the kids being bored while on the high seas either. Most cruise ships and yacht charters offer a variety of fun-filled activities and entertainment on-board, coupled with exceptional dining.

We’ve rounded up some of the top short-haul cruises from Singapore for an awesome family mini getaway at sea!
