Luxury cruises are the most comfortable and convenient way to see the world. Ships are usually smaller in size so the ratio of crew to guests is generally higher than other cruise ships, offering that premium service and attention to detail to be expected of exquisite holidays. Specially selected staff are on hand to ensure that your expectations are not just met but exceeded with several cruise lines offering suite butler service as standard. Every cruise line offers their own unique luxury cruise experience, from All Inclusive cruising to extensive fine dining options, we have the perfect luxury cruise line for you in our extensive collection.

Dining is a culinary delight, most restaurants onboard are award-winning and fine wines and spirits are impeccably served to complement each course. The open dining arrangements on luxury cruises mean that you can choose at what time, and with whom, you dine. If you prefer, you can enjoy a full dinner menu served with the same attentive waiter service, but in the privacy of your own suite.

How else can I enjoy luxury cruising?
Luxury cruising is not confined to the open oceans. Indeed, many river cruise
lines specialise in luxury five and six-star accommodation, gourmet dining and hand-picked itineraries to create the finest river cruise experience. In additions, these river cruise lines, such as AmaWaterways
, Riviera River Cruises
, Viking River Cruises
and Saga River Cruises
, are often all-inclusive.
Similarly to yacht cruising, a river cruise is often aboard a smaller, more intimately sized ship, allowing access to ports across Europe and around the world that cannot be reached by an ocean-going cruise ship. River cruise tours along the Rhine, Douro and Danube are particularly popular for their carefully selected excursions in beautiful, remote towns and iconic cities. Luxury river cruising is ideal for those looking for an experience of top-class elegance on a smaller, more personalised scale.
