Planning a cruise #3


Yesterday we were looking at some of the family friendly cruise lines. But what if you and your group decides that you do not want to take children, and want to enjoy a few days in the lap of luxury. True, these cruises will be somewhat more expensive than the ones that we were discussing yesterday. But these cruises also tend to be more all inclusive.. Your sky is going to be covered. Your shore excursions will be taken care of. You will have no need to worry about how much your meals are going to cost, and that even includes an adult beverage with your meals. You will receive complementary wifi when you book one of the higher level suites. You are also going to find that these ships are going to have many fewer people on board their ships, which means that you will receive a higher level of service.

  • Let’s start by looking at Oceania Cruises. These cruises will not take more than fifteen hundred guests at a time.These cruises are for those who love the finer things in life, especially when it comes to food and drink. You will not find the frenzied pace that you would find on the cruisres we discussed yesterday, instead you will find a very tranquil environment. These cruise tend to attract older couples.
  • Also in this category of cruises would be Regent Seven Seas. Again you are going to find many fewer guests which means a higher level of service. You will also find superior cuisine. Regent does have a limited children’s program, which sets them apart from these type of cruises.
  • Seabourn’s ships will have no more than four hundred and fifty guests. Like most these cruises, people who have been on the other type of ships will be amazed by how much room they have in their suites. And again, you will be treated to fine cuisine.

Okay, let’s see if I can explain this right. There are different types of cruiselines. There is the “mass market” cruiselines like Carnival and Royal Caribbean. These are the cruises that take thousands of people. They offer low fares, but they tend to nickel and dime you. Here you are going to find lower quality food and services. And then there are premium cruises . You are going to be charged a little more up front, but more will be included in the fare. You will also find a higher class of food and service. The luxury class of cruises will mean an even higher cost, but pretty much everything is going to be nice and less is going to come at an additional cost.

Oceania hovers between premium and luxury, which means you are going to get a very nice cruise for a price that is more reasonable. You are going to find that a lot of your food, beverages, and services will be included in your fare. A lot of the specialty restaurants will be include. Room service will be included as well.

Oceania has smaller ships which will give everything a much more intimate feel. Some of the upper class cruises still expect you to dress pretty formally. But on Oceania you will want to wear what you would to the country club.

Let me know if you are interested in learning more at Oceania. I would be more than happy to help you figure out your questions.
