Indescribable Luxury Cruise Line Vacations!
Every cruise vacation offers passengers a luxurious
cruising experience. Some of the cruise lines raise the bar so high that
they are referred to as Luxury Cruise Lines by going "above and beyond" what
one might expect in a great cruise experience. Taking Romantic Getaways cruises aboard
their ships is really considered a Luxury Cruise Line Vacation!
This type of luxury cruise line includes such companies as Crystal Cruises,
Seabourn Cruise Line, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, Windstar Cruises and
Silversea Cruises. Vacations with these cruise lines are truly an
unforgettable romantic and luxurious experience.
For the most part, these cruise lines operate smaller ships on which they
can better look after their passengers. They provide excellent service of
"six-star" quality. Many of the cruise lines offer more exotic itineraries
enhancing their Luxury Cruise experience. These lines also have a more
genuine all-inclusive cruise nature.
You might think that the staff on the luxury cruise lines' ships are
telepathic. The crews are trained to anticipate your needs and desires and
react with courteous service. Expect friendly service from a staff that will
know you by name and remember your favorite drinks, remember your breakfast
preferences and all the "little" items that you may wish.
In order to provide this type of luxury service, the staff to passenger
ratio is higher than on the main stream cruise lines. As an example, The
Paul Gaugan, a Radisson Seven Seas cruise ship has room for only 320
passengers with a staff of 211. Virtually every luxury cruise line has a
passenger-to-staff ratio of 2 to 1.
As mentioned above, the luxury cruise line ships are generally smaller than
the mega ships of the "mainstream" cruise lines. The passenger capacities of
the smaller luxury ships average between about 150 and 400. Crystal Cruises
is an exception. This luxury cruise line has a fleet of three luxury ships
with passenger capacities of about 900. This however does not compromise
their luxury cruise experience.
All of the luxury cruise ships display expensive works of art, rare and
exotic woods, fine fabrics and china and have expansive wine cellars. The
luxurious accommodations aboard these ships are relatively large and very
well appointed. The public areas - elegant dining rooms, enticing spa,
exciting casino etc.- are in most cases smaller and more intimate on luxury
ships than on the larger cruise ships.
Because these luxury cruise ships are smaller, they have the ability to sail
to ports that are inaccessible by their "bigger cousins". This again makes
for a more intimate, luxurious and romantic getaway cruise experience in these ports - no
crowds of four to six mega ships passengers.
Luxury cruise lines offer itineraries worldwide and in the most exotic
places. There is truly something for everyone looking for that special
luxury cruise vacation!
