Destination: Luxury Cruises

Not your typical mass-market, packed-to-the-gills, no-frills experience, luxury cruises are a different caliber of cruising.

The line between luxury and mainstream cruises might once have been distinct, but that’s no longer the case. Cruise lines began to discover travelers didn’t always fit squarely into one camp or another. Successful professionals were looking for upscale vacations combined with adventure or active pursuits. And hard-working individuals were saving their money for the trip of a lifetime but might feel uncomfortable cruising with a lot of formality.

Contemporary, Premium Small Ship: Azamara Club Cruises, Viking Ocean Cruises, Oceania Cruises

Hallmarks of Luxury: They might be referred to as “contemporary luxury,” “upscale,” “ultra-premium” or “luxury-lite.” The lines themselves are quite different from each other, too, offering a mix of mainstream cruise hallmarks (a la carte services and smaller cabins) and more luxurious attractions, such as incredible itineraries with lots of port time and overnights, intimate ships and top-notch service and dining. Typically, pricing is somewhere in between — more expensive than Holland America or Celebrity Cruises but markedly less than Regent or Silversea.

Traditional, All-Inclusive Luxury: Crystal Cruises, Silversea Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn Cruise Line

Hallmarks of Luxury: Personalized pampering, the finest appointments onboard, gourmet cuisine and a world-class selection of wine and spirits. While all traditional luxury cruise ships can be considered small, they range in size from Crystal’s 1,080-passenger Crystal Serenity down to Silversea’s 296-passenger Silver Wind. Passengers tend to be on the older side, though you will find wealthy young couples and families, especially during school breaks.
