Ocean Cruising

Ocean cruises! Each cruise line offers you a unique vacation in terms of atmosphere, service, size and style of staterooms or suites, as well as entertainment, dining and so much more. It’s that very reason why relying on Cruise & Travel Experts to help you plan your cruise vacation can be so valuable. Below, you’ll find an overview of major ocean cruise lines, sorted into three basic categories and by clicking 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.
