Which Cruise is Right for You?

Some are drawn to cruising for the beauty of only having to unpack once, some for the incredible onboard facilities, and others for the spectacular destinations and scenery. Whilst all cruise experiences offer a similar mix of drawcards, each cruising style has its own signature appeal. Here’s what we love about the most popular styles of cruising.

Ocean Cruises

There’s a wide range of itineraries, cruise lines and cruise ships to choose from for those seeking for a taste of life at sea, or an incredible journey that spans horizons across many countries. Where the destinations come to you by way of sparkling seas, ocean cruising is an easy holiday where everything you could possibly need is within easy reach. Fabulous pools and sundecks, lounges, gyms, cafes, and restaurants are the norm, but many ships also boast celebrity chef restaurants, water parks, rock-climbing walls, ice skating rinks, casinos and adults-only enclaves. If you can tear yourself away from the pool deck or day spa, everything from the majestic wilderness of Alaska, to the ancient treasures of the Mediterranean, and private Caribbean islands awaits.

Repositioning Cruises

Repositioning cruises occur when ships must relocate to a different region to begin a new season, and it’s these essential journeys that come at excellent value to cruisers. While a repositioning cruise will still visit many different ports, more time at sea is spent due to the long distance the ship must travel to the new region of the world. This gives you the perfect time to take advantage and experience the amazing onboard facilities it has to offer. Repositioning cruises are a great way to combine two holidays in one, as you can cruise to one destination and enjoy a few days discovering the city or region, before flying home, or vice versa.

River Cruises

A leisurely cruise along the world’s ancient arteries is an inherently relaxing – and luxurious – way to
travel. Whether you’re navigating medieval stretches of Europe, or cruising Southeast Asia’s Mekong River, each new day on a river cruise brings a wealth of intriguing experiences, through self-guided exploration and a range of included excursions. Then there are the purpose-built ships with all the comforts of home, with added luxuries like butler service, evening entertainment, and sophisticated dining.

World Cruises

Around-the-world voyages are the pinnacle of cruising experiences. You can explore the far corners of the world in total style and comfort, and all without having to step foot in an airport, or continuously pack and unpack. Elegant staterooms truly become a home away from home, lifelong friendships are formed with like-minded cruisers, and your onboard inclusions are elevated to new standards of service. Not to mention, mouth-watering dining experiences reflect the region of the world you’re travelling in. Regardless of the ship you choose, whether it be an intimate small ship, or a large iconic ocean liner, one thing’s for sure: You can expect the ultimate of experiences every step of the way

Luxury Cruises

Michelin star fine dining restaurants, butler service, and elegantly appointed suites are what you can expect onboard some of the luxury cruise ships. Luxury cruising appeals to those travellers searching for an unparalleled, all-inclusive travel experience. Onboard you will find Enrichment Programs, Art Collections, & Wine Connoisseurs for example, along with included shore excursions in each port. Luxury ships will cater to a more intimate experience for their guests, with 200 – 1000 guests onboard, and offer a high passenger-space ratio.

Expedition Cruises

Expedition and adventure cruises are increasingly in demand as more and more travellers discover that small ship cruising is the best way to get off-the-beaten-track and observe some of the world’s most unspoilt and remote destinations. Expedition cruising will have you constantly ticking things off your bucket list, like witnessing the unforgettable Northern Lights, getting up close to the icebergs and wildlife of Antarctica, or the dramatic falls of the Kimberley. Expedition cruising is often the only way to get to the heart of a destination, and fully immerse yourself in that region.
