Victoria, British Columbia ( ForPressRelease ) November 16, 2010 - Many cruise line companies are now putting their energies into promoting the actual cruise experience, rather than the cruise’s final destination. They are enticing travelers with reviews of celebrity entertainment, world class cuisines directed by master chefs, comforts and conveniences only dreamed of such as thick, plush towels and bath robes, and best of all, attentive, personalized service. Dance clubs, casinos, sports activities, how-to classes that may include hors’dourve preparation, or creating whimsical creatures from towels, and supervised children’s activities and programs are just a few of the activities on cruise liners. All cruises offer their passengers the sailing advantage of having not to pack and unpack at each stop, or having to search for a good restaurant, or trying to locate a competent tour guide.
Some cruise lines advertise a casual approach to sailing, whereas others present the ultimate in elegant decors and dining experiences. Several cruise liners have branched into specialty cruises. Some are known for their cruises to the Caribbean. In Victoria Celebrity cruise ( http://www.cruiseholidayspacific.com ) lines offers 12 nights of sailing in the east or southern Caribbean islands. The Oceania, known for pampering sophisticated travelers, also has a Caribbean cruise of 12 nights to St. Barts, Antigua, and other ports. The Holland America line boasts a 21 day Caribbean cruise, as well as advertising they have 253 ports around the world.
The Celebrity line presents its five star cruising experience not to their passengers, but to their “honored guests.” The Oceania cruise line appeals to travelers who enjoy the finer things in life such as elegantly furnished rooms or haute cuisine served on exquisite china. The Holland America line has been awarded the “Best Overall Cruise Value” for the ninth straight year.
A newer approach to cruising is river cruises. River cruises naturally need to have smaller ships to navigate narrow waterways. These smaller ships create a warm friendliness between crew and passengers, and they offer views of quaint villages and fairytale castles in Europe and Russia, or the magnificence of nature’s beauty as seen in the Three Gorges on the Yangtze River in China.
“Selecting the right cruise line for your vacation can sometimes be a challenge, that is, if you try and do it by yourself. Wide-ranging itineraries, stateroom selection, amenities, ship sizes, dining, onboard and off board activities are just part of a large list of preferences that need to be considered. A luxury cruise specialist with years of experience can simplify the cruise process.
