Craft Cruises® - Cruising with a Purpose
Craft Cruises® - Cruising with a Purpose
Cruising with a purpose is about collecting experiences and making new friends. If you have found yourself resisting cruising then you may want to think again. Craft Cruises® is known for having the highest quality educational programs onboard award winning cruise lines. Craft Cruises® carefully selects the cruise lines, ships and itineraries used to ensure each passenger's safety, comfort and enjoyment.
Misconceptions about cruising have kept many from trying it but it is truly one of the safest, most comfortable and easy-to-budget vacations available. The most satisfied of all Craft Cruise® participants are the ones who resisted. The onboard classes, the pampering, the friendships, the overall feeling of togetherness, and the exclusive opportunities to meet other like-minded people in ports around the world have led to expectations being exceeded and the cruise experience being repeated over and over again.
Craft Cruises® is a full service travel agency specializing in personalizing the cruise experience by including activities people love. At Craft Cruises® our purpose is to create the highest quality cruise experience by catering to travelers with a keen interest in the shared travel experience, cultural exchange and learning new skills.
“...I think the best aspect of the whole thing was the total immersion factor as well as unparalleled after-hours access to the speakers. I have no negative comments except that it was too fun, making coming back to work pure hell....“

“...Loved our fun times together at dinner and our various discussions too. The seminars were just the best! But how can you go wrong with the instructors; the elite of the knitting world....“
Celebrate Cultural Differences
At Craft Cruises® we believe what we have in common is more important that our differences and that by recognizing this we are better able to celebrate those differences. Craft Cruises® has handcrafted experiences impossible to duplicate traveling alone.
In addition to being affordable, cruising offers something for everyone. With Craft Cruises®, our special interest groups makes up only a small percentage of the passengers onboard. So while you are attending class, your family, friends and loved ones can be enjoying a plethora of other onboard activities. On any given day there are often hundreds of fun activities to keep them entertained. Most cruises offer excellent enrichment programs that range from culinary classes and wine tasting to computer lessons and yoga. Of course there is also plenty of time for relaxation, sunbathing and catching up on that book you have been wanting to read.
“...I'm writing to tell you how much we enjoyed the Alaska Knitting cruise with you; the combining of the cruise and training really did seem to give the best of both worlds as far as we were concerned. We are describing it as the "event of a lifetime" to our friends and definitely plan to come on another Craft Cruise in a year or two!...“
Cruising with a Purpose
Cruising with a purpose offers inspiration to everyone who joins us because we believe happiness is not a destination but a way of life. Take some time for yourself, join us on a Craft Cruise and discover the joy and freedom travel brings.
