World cruise packages that are a class apart

  1. 1. World Cruise Packages That Are a Class Apart<br />Luxury is indeed an over rated word in the travel industry. Everyone, especially in the cruise travel industry, uses the world generously. Cruise liners have now come up with luxury world cruise packages that may not offer first class luxury at half the price, but they are definitely reasonable!The biggest advantage of luxury cruises is the choice of accommodations. Unlike large ocean liners, cabins on luxury cruise ships such as range anywhere from 195 sq. feet to 2,025 sq feet. A typical cabin comes with a separate bedroom, a lounge with a table, huge sofas, large flat screen televisions and a walk in closet. Some bathrooms come with separate wash basins for ‘him’ and her,’ whirlpool baths, and separate shower enclosures. Some ships have balconies that are large and comfortable enough for you to be able to enjoy an outdoor massage, or a share a sunset dinner. Regent World Cruises boast that 90% of their staterooms have a balcony.Another great feature of luxury cruising is the onboard service. When onboard a luxury world cruise like the Seabourn World Cruises, guests are usually welcomed with a glass of champagne and personally escorted to their suite, where the butler helps to unpack clothes, polishes shoes, and makes bookings for restaurants, and spas. Unlike huge ocean liners, luxury world cruise staffs are encouraged to remember and address passengers by their names. The service is warm and friendly, and some crew members even remember your favorite taste treats. In fact, some cruise lines like the Silversea World Cruises claim to have the highest space-per guest ratio of any luxury world cruise accommodation.The dining experience too is unique, unlike some large ocean liners where food means pizzas, hot dogs and French fries served on colored plastic plates. In fact, cruise lines like Regent World Cruises and Tauck River Cruises, boast of the finest china, and silver cutlery. The food too is made from scratch using fresh seasonal produce. Most luxury cruise liners have specialty restaurants that serve cuisines ranging from Japanese to French to Italian. The food is excellent in terms of presentation, taste, variety and ingredients. Besides fresh fruits, fresh fruit juices are also served every day.On some of the best luxury world cruises, guests are truly pampered with Egyptian cotton linens, an abundant choice of pillows to choose from, Bvlgari and Ferragamo bath soaps, aromatherapy room scents, complimentary beverages in your suite refrigerator, personalized stationery, bathroom slippers, and fresh flowers arranged every day.Unlike an average cruise vacation where everything has to be paid separately, most of these luxury world cruises are truly all inclusive. In fact some cruise lines offer free internet service and complimentary daily newspapers of your choice. Cruise lines like Seabourn World Cruises, and Regent World Cruises offer all inclusive packages that are a notch above the other cruise lines.Ellie Sobel is a cruise specialist.
