Luxury and All Inclusive These are the smaller and more exclusive cruise lines who cater to those seeking more creature comforts and the highest levels of service. They often feature overnight stops in port, and authentic cultural emersion. Ironically, most luxury cruise lines offer better value when you consider the amenities included in the price such as: gratuities, gourmet dining, cultural events on board and in port, beverages including fine wines etc. Luxury cruise lines are the perfect choice for significant vacations such as honeymoons, anniversaries etc. or for those with simple taste, when only the best will do.

Family Friendly Almost all major cruise lines provide entertainment programs for children. Some cruise lines also provide a nursery (6 months to 3 years of age), with an hourly charge for the service. For older children, including Tweens and Teens, the onboard programs are both fun and adventurous, supervised by trained professionals, all within a safe environment and included in the price of your cruise fare.

NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE
Traditional or Premium Many of the traditional cruise lines offer a children’s program as well, although not as comprehensive as the family friendly ships. Premium lines provide a variety of ships and ambience, and the mega ships. Smaller vessels sailing from local ports such as Baltimore and Boston, etc. have become intensely popular of late, since no air transportation is necessary. Complimentary dining for all meals is included in the cruise price. There are also specialty dining restaurants on board, which carry a modest charge, and a unique dining experience for those who want some diversity to the standard menu.
