Types of Cruises

No two cruises are the same. They come in all shapes and sizes and depending on what you’re looking for, it’s impossible to rate one over the other. It all comes down to you. Factors such as budget, time, and preferred destinations are obvious considerations when deciding, but also the onboard atmosphere, your personal travel style and who you’re travelling with are important too. While some cruises depart from your doorstep, others may require an international flight before you can embark, unpack and relax as you admire the stunning scenery transforming out your window.

The two most obvious cruise types are ocean cruises and river cruises. Voyages on the high seas are incredibly popular and a fantastic way to explore beautiful islands and numerous countries in the one journey. Ocean cruise ships are famous for their incredible facilities, ranging from spas and nightclubs to water parks and theatres. If you’d prefer to always have a bit of dry land in sight, you may prefer to glide down the meandering waterways of the world’s many famous and gorgeous river systems. With a completely different style of vessel, a river cruise provides a more intimate holiday experience with plenty of stops to explore the riverside towns and cities along the way.

If atmosphere is important to you, there’s a great range of luxury cruises touting high-class amenities and enrichment programs as well as adults-only cruises that provide ample opportunity to mingle with like-minded souls. For those who want to bring the whole family, there are stacks of cruises that cater to all ages, with kids clubs and plenty of fun onboard entertainment. Is time a critical deciding factor?
