Below, you’ll find an overview of major ocean cruise lines, sorted into three basic categories and by clicks the “Search Cruises” links, you will learn even more about the cruise brand and special cruise offers.
Luxury Cruise Lines
While almost all cruises provide a sense of luxury, these cruise lines set themselves apart by offering exclusive amenities to their passengers and creating a sense of intimacy not usually attained on larger ships. You can expect fewer passengers, elegant dining in a relaxed atmosphere and hand-crafted meals designed by award-winning chefs. You also can expect luxurious staterooms with plush bedding, more spacious bathrooms, and typically larger staterooms with more comfortable balconies. You also may have a butler, or a room steward assigned to fewer guests, creating more personalized attention for you. Furthermore, because many cruise destinations are not accessible to today’s larger ships, you will encounter fewer crowds and a more personal experience as you visit ports that the big ships can’t.
Most guests onboard are well-traveled and experienced cruisers, seeking new destinations and adventures. First-time cruisers aboard a luxury ship are also experienced travelers, desiring greater exclusivity and privacy.
Deluxe & Specialty Cruise Lines
These cruise lines generally provide many of the comforts and amenities found on luxury brands, although the cruise fare is not as all-inclusive as on luxury brands. Many of these ships are mid-size or smaller, and generally offer longer itineraries with more overnights in certain ports.
Onboard, you’ll find season travelers seeking an adventure or experiential cruise experience in exotic locations.
Premium & Resort Cruise Lines
These cruise lines create a fun-filled atmosphere, perfect for vacationing friends and families, couples, and groups of all sizes. Action and fun are a top priority – featuring some of the best Broadway-style shows, quality dining in a variety of venues, memorable activities for kids of all ages, and other entertainment that’ll make you feel like you’re staying at one of the world’s top resorts. Not to mention you’ll be making port calls at some of the world’s most exciting destinations, while unpacking only once. Now that’s a vacation everyone can agree on!
Onboard, you’ll find all kinds of travelers—cruise rookies checking out their very first ship, family reunions, honeymooners, social groups, and avid travelers looking for value.
