The Pearl Seas Cruises Difference


Pearl Seas Cruises has developed the art of small ship cruising to perfection. We have designed a new ship that combines all of the latest guest conveniences with the most modern navigation and safety technology. The new Pearl Mist features large, gracefully appointed staterooms with all the comforts of home. Private balconies in every stateroom, open sun decks, and spacious lounges make traveling between ports a delight.

Experience the intimate atmosphere of a small cruise ship with only 200 guests onboard. Enjoy all the modern amenities, activities, and experiences of a larger ship, but without the large crowds.  Our clientele aboard the Pearl Mist has an intellectual thirst for traveling to new and exciting places. Enjoy the camaraderie as you meet and mingle with like-minded passengers. Continue the conversation during our daily cocktail hour when you can socialize with your fellow guests as well as our knowledgeable on-board region experts.

Our ship features a spacious dining salon which seats all passengers at one time, as well as surrounding windows that offer panoramic views of passing scenery. Dine in a refined atmosphere and savor tantalizing cuisine infused with local flavors—all prepared fresh to order by our internationally-trained master chefs. Learn More

Unique Itineraries & Destinations

The ports that we visit on the Pearl Mist are some of the best locations found north of the equator.  We strive to have something for everyone when we design our itineraries, whether you are looking to discover the historic cities of the Canadian Coast or relax on the beach on one of the West Indies’ many gorgeous islands. The smaller size of the Pearl Mist allows us to take you to unique towns and hidden gems that larger cruise ships can’t reach, creating a truly authentic experience on-shore.  Take a walk through one of St. Croix’s famous botanical gardens, or explore the UNESCO Historical protected town of Lunenburg as we take you to destinations that we’ve hand-picked as our favorites. Take a look at our upcoming 2015 schedule.
