The Craft of Cruising

Simply the best way to see the world!

How about a cruise on the Mekong through Vietnam and Cambodia which offers the traveler the opportunity to explore traditional floating markets and rural pagodas, quiet country villages, royal palaces including the world’s largest religious monument Angkor Wat, Cambodia.  One thing is for sure there is much to see in two countries which are full of history?

Or how would you like to discover the real Russia and toast to the Tsars as you cruise along the historic Volga (and Svir) rivers from Moscow to St Petersburg, exploring the cities important landmark, revealing the real Russia as you acquaint yourself with its rich history and culture?

What sets Celebrity apart from other vacation choices today is the cruise line’s passionate dedication to providing guests with a cruise experience that exceeds expectations. This extraordinary performance level has become the definition of Celebrity Cruises, and has set the worldwide standard for today’s expression of what first made cruising famous — high quality, superior design, spacious accommodations, grand style, attentive service and exceptional cuisine.

Azamara is the new, deluxe cruise experience for discerning travelers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations and indulge in amenities and service unparalleled on the high seas. Yes, it is glorious – from the moment you step aboard and receive your welcoming mimosa. And what could be better than canapes each afternoon and a nightly treat on your pillow? There is, of course, butler service to satisfy your every whim, and we offer in-room spa services, too.

The ‘Crystal Difference’ starts with the company’s most important mission: to be the best in the luxury service business, not just the luxury cruise industry. Service begins with one of the highest staff-to-passenger ratios in the industry. The European-trained staff hail from more than 40 nations and are selected based on their winning and friendly personalities as well as their expertise in providing Six-Star service.
 

Formed in 2002 by luxury cruise industry veterans Joe Watters and Frank Del Rio, Oceania Cruises is the world’s only upper premium cruise line. Cuisine, Comfort, Service and outstanding value are the pillars that define Oceania Cruises’ five-star product and have positioned the line as the cruise company of choice for travelers seeking a truly refined and casually elegant travel experience.

Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated. Our intimate ships visit the most desirable destinations worldwide, sailing to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow.

With fewer than 300 guests, it feels like your own private yacht. No crowds, no formal nights, just luxurious surroundings and the freedom to write your own adventure. Small Ships. Infinite Possibilities. Step away from the crowds. Away from towering decks and a thousand people, or even more. Away from lines, from waiting, away from the whole idea of group travel.

SeaDream yachting is different from big ship cruising. Unlike cruises, you will be pampered by SeaDream’s award–winning service and cuisine. You can be as active or as relaxed as you want to be while experiencing the ultimate in luxury, privacy and personalization.

Award-winning river cruise line AmaWaterways continues to build upon our industry lead with a fleet of 15 custom-designed vessels in Europe, Russia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Africa. We continue to lead the way in river cruising by providing innovative luxurious ship designs featuring step-out and French balconies, premium stateroom amenities and warm, personalized service.
