Cruise holidays are a fantastic way to see the world. Sea, sun and family fun are the perfect combination for many cruise lovers, on ships offering all the attractions of a holiday resort.
But if you’re looking to really get away and experience those destinations a little off the tourist trail, a luxury cruise could give you an entirely new travel experience.
Ultra-luxury vessels tend to be smaller than mainstream cruise liners, with more emphasis on all-inclusive travel. They typically offer the kind of premium spas, restaurants and boutiques that you’d expect to find in a five-star hotel, with exceptional standards of personal service from highly trained butlers and concierge.
Where mainstream cruises offer shore excursions to famous sights, luxury cruises tend to offer more unique cultural experiences with smaller, more intimate groups. These are often led by local guides and experts who hold seminars on board your ship, who could take you to see native tribes in the South Pacific, or lead exclusive food and wine tours in the Mediterranean.
Or for the truly adventurous, some luxury lines even give you the chance to venture out on a Zodiac landing craft – allowing you to travel otherwise inaccessible rivers and waterways around your destinations, or even land on Antarctica’s remote frozen shores for some unforgettable whale and penguin spotting.
With so many cruise lines to choose from there’s never been a better time to find your perfect luxury cruise. Our Cruise Concierge are specialists in tailoring individual luxury cruises, and can even add flights and hotel stays to your holiday before or after you set sail.
