Cruise lines have become affordable for many people. This is one of the most memorable experiences one can have because of the large choice of activities packaged in one place. However, the high class cruise lines rated as six-star are expensive beauties with unimpeachable services and amenities. The interiors, the wood and fabrics used, the crockery, cuisine, drinks and even the linen used are of the finest quality. Such luxury is heavy the pocket and only for those who can afford it. It is expensive not only for the passengers but also a company to construct and run such luxury.
The all-in-one luxurious package is even hard to find in a landlubber city. Common amenities may have Internet cafés, libraries, shows as Las Vegas, casinos, parlors, sports areas, clubs, Jacuzzi, halls, ball room, dance floor, small and big restaurants, European style spas and much more. Cabins may be well equipped with data ports, satellite phones, mini-bars etcetera. Luxury cruise lines come in different sizes, but the larger the ship, the more are the amenities and choices. Some larger ships also offer a variety of cabins ranging from luxury suites to penthouses with private verandas and choices between inside view and ocean view. One can be as private as needed or enjoy the cruise with fellow passengers.
The staff to passenger ratio is high to be able to provide individual attention to passengers. The staff is well trained and highly skilled too. They try to know the guests well and understand each one's interests and preferences. Their aim is to make each passenger feel like a special guest and take the best possible care.
Package rates vary according to the ship, days of travel, facilities, type of rooms and destination. Depending on policy, some luxury cruise lines provide a great deal by including airfare, airport transfers, meals, entertainments and off-shore sightseeing. The charges per day are comparable to luxury hotels but the joy of being able to do so many things is unbeatable and beyond imagination. Luxury cruises are usually more than two weeks to common as well as exotic destinations with few also offering round-the-world trips.
Luxury cruises offer the finest possible atmosphere, spaciousness, amenities and experience of a life time. Although all luxury cruise lines are different in their own ways, the commonality lies in all being really high class and incomparable. Luxury cruise lines can certainly be called a palace on the water – and actually more than that.
