Luxury Cruise Lines

There’s no doubt about it: luxury cruises are exceptional in every way, and offer a stylish, sophisticated level of pampering rarely replicated on land. 

 

Is there nothing you hate more than packing and unpacking? No problem; let the butler do it. Feel like having dinner à deux this evening, gazing out at the sea from your private verandah? Simply summon a steward, and a 5 course gourmet meal will be brought to you, course by course.


 
MY TRAVEL AGENT’S top points of comparison for LUXURY cruises:

 

1. SHIPS  Ships in this category range from mega-yachts for only a hundred or so privileged guests to mid-size vessels, which, in this category are considered “large.” Space is so abundant that you might wonder where everyone has gone.

2. PORTS Your cruise will pause at intimate ports less frequented by the larger ships. Some luxury lines even include a selection of shore excursions in the cruise fare.

3. PUBLIC AREAS Tasteful and elegant surroundings might include such touches as authentic antiques and priceless art collections.

 

4. CABINSSpacious staterooms are often termed “all-suite.” On the newest ships, all suites feature an ocean view or balcony. Look for designer toiletries in the bathrooms and extra touches such as fine linens and fresh cut flowers. Some lines include complimentary in suite bar set-ups for all categories and butlers attending to the needs of guests in exclusive top category suites.

                

5. DININGOpen seating is the norm and guests dine where and with whom they please during restaurant hours. Top international chefs are tapped for their culinary expertise in designing menus to please the palate, using the freshest high quality ingredients. Prepare to savor meals prepared à la minute and presented with flair. Complimentary wines accompany meals on most lines.

 

6. SERVICE -  At this level, the service staffs anticipate their guests’ desires and it’s rare that a special request goes unfulfilled.  There will likely be almost as many crew as there are guests, and they will know you by name.

 

7. ENTERTAINMENTThe entertainment ranges from a classical piano recital to a Broadway-worthy musical.

 

8. ACTIVITIESEnrichment programs with celebrity and scholarly guest speakers and culinary classes augment traditional shipboard activities. Libraries are well stocked with books and videos.  You might enjoy a lecture from a former head of state, prominent journalist or academic. You can take courses too, in everything from cooking to computers.

 

9. SPA/FITNESSHealth clubs and spas are fully equipped and staffed with professionals that bring new meaning to indulgence. After jogging or a serious workout, guests can wind down with a swim or savor a relaxing soak in generous hot tubs.

 

10. FAMILY/CHILDRENAdult-oriented, luxury cruise lines are usually inappropriate for children and teens. The lack of organized activities makes them undesirable for young families.

 

11. FELLOW PASSENGERSWell-heeled couples and singles accustomed to the best travel accommodations and service. Small groups and families gravitate to the larger vessels in this category. Traveling in style to far-flung corners of the globe is highly prized by fellow luxury-minded passengers.
