When Do You Want To Go?

Small-Ship, Luxury Cruises

Small-ship, luxury cruising is the perfect way to explore the world whilst enjoying all the finer things in life. With the ships being smaller it means you can be assured of fantastic service, lots of space and a beautiful ship to enjoy with a host of great services and facilities.

Each luxury cruise line has its own unique features, but one thing that is for sure and that is a first-class experience. Many ships in this category are close to being brand-new, and they offer beautiful, contemporary spaces adorned by an extensive collection of artwork and dedicated service from experienced crew ready to look after your every need. If you prefer things more classic in style, then you’ll find some of the more classic ships offer a country club atmosphere with a relaxed environment and features such as warm wood panels, exquisite chandeliers and comfortable seating. On a luxury cruise, it’s all about getting exactly what you want, in the style that works for you.

Dining

Almost all small-ship, luxury cruise lines excel at food and each one competes to offer the very best cuisine at sea. You will find a variety of renowned chefs who are responsible for curating the cuisine that you will enjoy. Each ship will feature a main restaurant serving a variety of classic dishes and specials each day, but there is normally also a host of other speciality restaurants offering spectacular cuisine from around the world. Finding something that you fancy, shouldn't be a problem in small-ship, luxury cruising.

Value for Money

Enjoying finer things in life doesn’t have to cost the earth. Many cruise lines offer an enhanced or all-inclusive cruise fare which means the accommodation, dining, drinks and gratuities are all taken care of. Some will go even further including some of the shore excursions, Wi-Fi and even a laundry service too. This means that all you'll need to worry about is enjoying your cruise holiday and not the bill at the end!
