A luxury cruise is one of the most relaxing ways to see the world. These ships are larger than most river boats (usually >500) but much smaller than the typical 2000-4000 person ships. These cruises don’t simply revolve just around large quantities of food – but around quality, exquisite service and refinement.
If you don’t want to travel on a huge impersonal floating hotel, yet you want more entertainment than a river boat normally features, a mid-size luxury cruise line will be the perfect experience for you.
Some luxury cruise lines we adore are Silversea, Oceania, Crystal, Regent, Paul Gauguin and Hurtigruten (not considered luxury per se, but the experience is amazing).
