Chapter XVIII- Premium Cruises

Premium cruise lines tend to be large, but not mega-type ships that carry thousands of passengers—though offering similar voyages, plus voyages to exotic locales. Due to the size of these ships, they will not be docking in the heart of the town or village like the ultra-premium lines.

These lines cater to travelers seeking more luxurious accommodations than can be found on the contemporary lines, plus enhanced dining, excellent service, extensive activities, and enrichment opportunities that include lectures and classes with experts in their fields. The onboard experience is sophisticated and the service above average. They tend to cater to more mature and discerning passengers who are seeking a sophisticated level of service, ship amenities, and accommodations at somewhat higher prices. These lines also offer children’s programs for all ages.

These lines are well suited for:

  • Those seeking both a variety of activities and modern luxury, both contemporary and conservative design, and dining experiences in which the atmosphere is as important as the food and wine.
  • Families wishing to travel with young children where the environment is a little more subdued.
  • Families with teenagers.
  • Families looking for an educational experience.
  • Family reunions and multi-generational families.
  • Forty- and fifty-somethings looking for a couple’s vacation.
  • Seniors looking for new friends.
  • Solo travelers.
  • Couples looking for romantic getaways.
  • Destination weddings
  • Honeymoons
