Well, not only do you not have to choose but you can still enjoy the fine opulence associated with a five star resort. Better still, you can actually get a better insight into a destination than you would confined to a secluded resort. On a Hawai’i and South Pacific Island luxury cruise you can explore the region in the very best of comfort and style on a luxury ship. Luxury ships are typically smaller than regular cruise vessels, allowing access to smaller local ports and exploration of destinations that larger ships cannot access. Travel-lovers will be pleased to learn itineraries are more destination focused, with luxury cruises usually spending more time in ports than their counterparts. On-board, luxury cruise ships also have more spacious suites, complete with state-of-the-art equipment, premium linens and toiletries, and luxurious bathrooms. The public areas and ship layout in general tend to be more sophisticated, and there’s first-class fine dining too. The higher staff to guest ratio ensures premium service and a more intimate experience. Of course, as with any Hawai’i and South Pacific Island cruise, there’s more to do than just revelling in the lavish opulence. There’s plenty of entertainment, from live bands in lounges, piano bars to Broadway-style shows. On the shore, there’s a smorgasbord of activities to stretch the legs, from nature walks to surfing and snorkelling. A myriad of options are available for the discerning cruiser, with year-round luxury voyages operating in French Polynesia and a raft of sumptuous ships relocating to the Pacific for the southern hemisphere summer months offering a wide range of interesting itineraries – you are spoilt for choice!
