Cruise Lines
There are so many cruise lines and so many itineraries and ships, the options can make you dizzy. A good travel agent can guide you to the perfect cruise for you. To become familiar with the different cruise lines, here's a partial listing by pricing and quality category.

Mainstream Large Ship Cruise Lines

  • Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines - the leader of the general megaliner market, RCCL delivers an enjoyable product. Food is good (but not gourmet), and service is pleasant. A multitude of onboard activities, exciting itineraries, and a good reputation means RCCL satisfies most of the cruisers out there. Not all ships are big and new (the new ones are featured on the commercials), so ask your travel agent what to expect on your particular cruise ship. RCCL is also known for some small cabins! The larger, newer ships offer rock climbing, ice skating, and more. RCCL is great for pretty much every middle America lifestyle, especially for those active, independent individuals who thought cruises were just for "boring stuffy people."

Premium Large Ship Cruise Lines

  • Holland America -- Holland America is a true premium cruise with class and special touches. The service is extra-friendly (maybe the best in the premium category), and dining excellent. Holland America is suitable for all ages, and kids are treated well. The ambiance is cheerful and relaxing. You'll find special touches onboard, especially for suite passengers.
  • Celebrity Cruise Lines -- Celebrity is sophisticated without being pretentious. Service, food, the aesthetics of the ship -- all excellent. Celebrity offers some great price values too. Celebrity is one of the few ships that offer a refreshing array of on-ship activities, going well beyond the usual art auction-bingo game-skin care demonstration offering of other megaliners.
  • Princess Cruises -- Princess Cruises bridges the gap between general and premium categories. She probably rivals RCCL in quality levels, and competes with Holland America for client base (that's just my observation). Food and service are consistently good, with some recent efforts to improve the food. Some of her ships are high "wow" factor, and are simply stunning. Princess does a great job of offering a wide range of shore excursions as well.
  • Disney Cruise Lines -- Disney always does everything top-notch, and their cruise line is no exception. DCL operates two ships out of Port Canaveral (near Orlando on the Atlantic side), with one ship sailing 7 night cruises, while the other operates 3 and 4 night cruises. Even if you aren't a Disney fanatic, you will have the time of your life. Everything is classy, fanciful, and relaxing. Dining takes place in a series of dining rooms, and you rotate every night along with a waitstaff that rotates with you. DCL also has their own private Bahamas island, which is heaven. Service is outstanding, and entertainment is the best at sea. For a honeymoon, combine a cruise with a land stay at Disneyworld, and you're all set!

Luxury Small Ship Cruise Lines

  • Radisson Seven Seas Cruises - when the ordinary just won't do, Radisson offers an excellent cruise for special occassion travelers, and for those who are looking for something a little better than the rest. Service, shoRadisson offers cruises to Bermuda, the Caribban, Alaska, Europe, and Tahiti, as well as other unique itineraries. The Tahiti cruise is a favorite among honeymooners!
  • Yachts of Seabourn - this top-of-the-line small ship cruise experience really caters to you. Dining rivals that of the finest restaurants in the world. Service is exemplary. Caviar is served onboard. Massages are offered deck side (complimentary of course). Imagine your cabin steward presenting you with a selection of designer soaps for your stay. And the staff knows your name within 24 hours. Itineraries are unique, as are the shore excursion options available. "Intimate ships, uncompromising luxury."

Niche Cruise Lines
Niche cruises offer something different & specialized. Travel onboard river barge cruise boats, or explore the unmanned shores of Costa Rica on a small 70 passenger boat. Small ship sailing is also a great way to get "up close and personal" to Alaska's great natural wonders. Nice cruise ships are more about the experience, and less about the onboard amenities.
