  • Update: Happy Cruises shut down in 2011. It is no longer in business.

Happy Cruises (a.k.a. Quail Cruises) is a Spanish cruise line and tour company that operates two ships: the M/V Gemini (shown above) and the M/V Ocean Pearl.

In 2011, Happy Cruises is offering cruises in the Mediterranean Aegean, and Northern Europe, with "all-inclusive" fares that cover most soft drinks, beer, wine, and cocktails.

Although the line does market to English-speaking travelers, the ship's staff are mostly Spanish-speaking, so a Happy Cruise is best suited to value-conscious guests who understand Spanish or aren't fazed by a truly European experience.
