Cruise News: Top Luxury Cruise Lines

By    |   Wednesday, 23 Nov 2016 08:51 AM

For truly discriminating travelers, the appeal of a high-end luxury cruise is undeniable.

While too many cruise lines bill themselves as luxury, only a handful can deliver what Mary Jean Tully, the CEO of The Cruise Professionals, tells Forbes true luxury is all about: no crowds, no standing in buffet lines, impeccable service, and attention to detail.

Here are three top cruise lines that deliver an unforgettable, true luxury experience for the discerning traveler.

1. Uniworld Boutique River Cruise — This California-based company has been around since 1976 and operates 13 ships in Europe where they cruise famous rivers such as the Seine, Rhone, and Danube. Uniworld has partnered with Red Carnation Hotels to provide sumptuous accommodations including top-of-the-line bedding and inviting décor, says Fodor’s Travel. Fodor’s says this cruise line is right for you if money is no object, you appreciate the aesthetics of thoughtful design, and you demand the best in fine dining and wine.

2. Silversea — This small cruise line operates only nine opulent ships that all feature ocean-view suites, butler service, and fine Italian cotton linens. Because the ships are on the smaller side, they are easily accommodated at more ports than larger ships. Destinations range from Mediterranean cities to Africa. Their highly recommended World Cruise, sailing for 116 days in 2017 and 121 days in 2018, covers dozens of destinations and costs at least a hefty $57,750 per person.

3. Paul Gauguin Cruises — This line consists of the Paul Gauguin and the Tere Moana. The Paul Gauguin cruises the Society Islands and French Polynesia, and all suites feature stunning ocean views. The ship draws travelers celebrating special occasions like honeymoons, retirements, and special anniversaries, says Cruise Critic. To really get the luxury experience, book a category B or higher stateroom to take advantage of personal butler service. Your butler will unpack your luggage, make your spa and dinner reservations, and handle your laundry.
