WHY CHOOSE A LUXURY CRUISE?
While almost all cruises provide a sense of luxury, these cruise lines set themselves apart by offering exclusive perks to their passengers and creating a sense of intimacy that sometimes cannot be attained on larger ships. You can expect fewer passengers, elegant dining in a relaxed atmosphere, hand-crafted meals designed by award-winning chefs, and luxurious staterooms with plush bedding, more spacious bathrooms, and typically larger staterooms with more comfortable balconies. You may have a butler or a room steward assigned to fewer guests, leading to more personalized attention for you. Best of all, the ports you’ll explore are among the world’s most coveted: they are not always accessible by today’s largest ships, leaving you with fewer crowds and a feeling that you are truly experiencing a one-of-a-kind vacation.
Most of the guests onboard are typically well-traveled and have likely taken been on numerous cruises, and are collecting new adventures and destinations. When there are first-time cruisers aboard a luxury ship, they’re generally experienced travelers that avoid the “big name” places and brands, and look for a sense of exclusivity and privacy.
From the waterways of Europe, to Asia, Russia, and beyond
While big-ship ocean cruises can offer an affordable getaway or shorter trip, luxury cruise lines specialise in immersive itineraries, many featuring off-the-beaten-path destinations out of reach of larger ships. World cruises and grand world voyages have a truly global reach, touching every continent. If you’ve been there and done that, consider a truly unique expedition style voyage with lines like Seabourn to Antarctic, or Crystal Cruises sailing through the Northwest Passage.
Of course, if time is limited, there are plenty of shorter options too, such as 7-night Greek Isles trips with lines like Windstar or Seabourn – still offering a luxurious experience onboard, and visiting smaller, unique destinations.
