Luxury Cruises

If you want to travel in complete comfort and style, luxury cruises are one of the best ways to see more of the world. Offering premium service and attention to detail- from fine dining to a high ratio of crew to guests- luxury cruise lines go all out to ensure that everything is taken care of from start to finish. Smaller in size than mainstream cruise liners, not only do luxury cruise holidays offer an exceptional onboard experience, but they will also transport you to hidden gem destinations that large ships are unable to access.


Luxury cruise lines and ships

When it comes to what to expect once you step onboard a luxury cruise ship, each cruise line offers something different, but you're likely to find everything from drinks, tips and gourmet dining to buffet service and luxury spa facilities included in your cruise fare. If you want to find out which ship to choose, read our guide to the top luxury cruises.

Six star cruises

The most luxurious type of cruising, onboard a six star cruise everything you could want is included in your cruise fare, such as shore excursions, drinks and gratuities, while accommodation comprises almost exclusively suites with balconies or verandas. If this sounds like your perfect idea of a luxury cruise holiday be sure to read our guide to six star cruises.

Five star cruises

While five star luxury cruise lines are still at the height of luxury, they can be a more affordable way to embark on a luxury cruise. Still exuding sophistication, elegance and world-class service, you may have to pay extra for some perks such as drinks, speciality dining and spa treatments. In addition, you'll also find more variety when it comes to accommodation, with staterooms on offer as well as suites.

Luxury Yacht cruises

For something even more exclusive, there's also the chance to embark on a luxury yacht cruise. With even smaller ships, less guests and a higher crew to passenger ratio, you'll feel like an a-lister from the moment you step onboard. If you want to find out which cruise line to choose, we've put together a guide to luxury yacht cruises.

Mainstream cruise lines

Luxury cruises aren’t simply limited to small, exclusive cruise ships. Thanks to larger cruise lines, such as Cunard, Celebrity and Princess, you can still experience luxury cruising alongside the action-packed adventure of travelling on a bigger ship courtesy of their luxurious suites. There is also the option to join member's clubs which boast their own private areas and exclusive restaurants, such as Cunard’s famous Grills and MSC’s Yacht Club. What's more, nothing says luxury more than a relaxing getaway without the kids. If you want to forget about messy meal times, bed times and early mornings, read our guide to the best adult only cruises.

Luxury river cruises

 

Luxury cruises are not just available for ocean voyaging as you'll also find five and six star cruise lines offering itineraries along some of the world's most iconic waterways. 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, with cruise lines including AmaWaterways, Riviera River Cruises and Saga River Cruises.

 

Luxury cruise holiday destinations

 

Luxury cruises are available across the world, whether it be a one week cruise around the Canary Islands, an exotic Caribbean cruise or a grand Transatlantic crossing. Many cruise lines also offer access to exclusive ports where larger vessels cannot venture, pairing elegant experiences onboard with exceptional shore excursions, as well as themed luxury voyages such as Grand Prix cruises to Monaco or Barcelona.

What's more, to make your luxury cruise holiday even more memorable you can enjoy a tailor-made cruise package, which could even include a cruise and stay, creating the cruise you've always dreamed of. If you want to know more about luxury cruise holiday destinations, be sure to read our list of the top places to go on a luxury cruise.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
