HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CRUISE

By Anna Sarjeant



Cruising now has yes-appeal for every type of traveller with cruise ships as diverse as the destinations they visit. Whether you’re a big fan of resort-style ships or prefer the intimacy of a small river ship; you look for child-friendly adventures or educational sightseeing, your kindred spirit cruise is out there.

Have a read over our Cruise Personality’s below to work out the best ship to suit you, then look for the corresponding icon in the table directly below that.



Icon THE RESORT CRUISER
You enjoy a range of entertainment and experiences whilst still remaining budget conscious. Cruise on a resort-style ship and you can expect an exciting range of activities and amazing facilities offering great value for money. Designed to appeal to all age groups, there is something for everyone, from children’s centres, health spas, bars and restaurants to adults-only areas and Broadway-style shows.




Icon THE SOPHISTICATED CRUISER
You are a traveller who enjoys the finer things. These cruise lines offer the benefits of contemporary ships, but go further with finer amenities and a more upscale environment. They primarily cater to more discerning travellers who are seeking a sophisticated level of service, ship amenities and accommodation. Many offer children’s programmes.



IconTHE LUXURY CRUISER
You dream of elegant surroundings with well-appointed suites, gourmet cuisine and unusual shore excursions accompanied by exceptional personalised service. Itineraries are typically destination focused with many ships calling at ports and islands larger ships are unable to access. Ships are typically smaller, specialising in amazing service and will cater to your every wish.




IconTHE ADVENTURE CRUISER
You are an intrepid traveller looking for a one-of-a-kind experience. Expedition cruising is a taste of exploration and adventure in off-the-beaten path places. The ships are able to navigate closer to scenic wonders. Led by an expedition team with naturalists and guest lecturers who give presentations on destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica and Greenland.




icon THE SOLO CRUISER
There's never been a better time to get on-board solo. Certain lines have hosted parties for the unattached and singles-themed cocktail nights. Providing the perfect foundation to acquire new friends, mix and mingle, meet up at Happy Hour, see a show or watch some comedy. A few cruises also offer single cabins and group social networking
prior to departure.
