Ocean cruising is the most classic cruising choice, allowing guests to discover many amazing destinations, often over a wide geographical area, in one holiday as they take to the high seas. From small ships to large ships, traditional tall ships to cutting-edge contemporary cruise liners, the range of ocean cruises available is astonishing and means there really is something for everyone out there. Whether you choose the sophisticated Mediterranean or the sun-soaked isles of the Caribbean, you’ll be guaranteed a splendid taste of the high life on an ocean cruise.
Large ship cruises deliver a floating resort experience, with a huge range of facilities, entertainment and dining to be enjoyed during your stay on board. For those who like to keep busy, the shops, casinos, theatres and bars of a large cruise ship are ideal – you’ll never be bored with so many experiences to enjoy on board. This is especially good if your itinerary includes several days at sea. Foodies will love the huge range of gastronomic experiences that can be found on larger cruise ships as you can sample different styles of cuisine from all around the world, no matter where you’re sailing.
Small ships offer a more intimate cruising experience, without large crowds or long queues to contend with. There is a huge range of small ship cruises available to suit every budget but some of the finest of this number specialise in providing exceptional luxury service to their passengers. With numbers on board topping off at 250 rather than 2,000, guest to crew ratios reduce accordingly meaning that you’ll receive a much more personal level of attendance on your cruise. The destinations you can reach on a small ship cruise are almost exhaustive, as you’re able to sail into remote ports of call and tiny harbours that larger ships cannot navigate.
