Why choose a premium cruise?

These cruise lines offer the benefits of contemporary brands, but take things a bit further with finer amenities and a more upscale environment. Many offer children’s programmes for all ages. Premium cruise line ships tend to be medium to large, but not mega-type ships. They offer similar itineraries with the smaller ships in this category operating unique itineraries including smaller, less-visited ports. They primarily cater to more discerning travelers who are seeking a sophisticated level of service, ship amenities and accommodations. Some lines offer numerous included amenities and are generally higher priced than contemporary cruise lines.


Who is premium cruising suited to?

• Families wishing to travel with children & teenagers where the environment is a little more subdued & looking for an educational experience for the family
• Family reunions & multi-generational families
• Adult couples and solo travelers who are destination oriented and enjoy the finer things in life
• Romantic getaways, destination weddings or honeymoons
• Seasoned travelers
• Travellers who find the small touches make all the difference – from the service to the food, to the ships themselves​
