Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity, the first to grow real grass and build a serious art collection, has long been one of the most innovative lines. These cruises draw couples, families, and groups who want style and comfort without luxury-line fares. The wide scope of daytime activities ranges from the educational (think technology classes) to the playful, such as water volleyball matches with sh...

Royal Caribbean

This is a great choice for families — second only to Disney Cruise Line and significantly less expensive. It’s also ideal for sporty travelers: The line’s adrenaline rush-driven activities — the best at sea — include rock-climbing, surf simulations, ice skating, ziplining, inline skating, and boxing (in a real ring). Entertainment choices feature high-dive shows on Oasis o...

Oceania Cruises

Sophisticated travelers who like food, wine, design, and art, as well as a casually elegant atmosphere, flock to this line. In addition to three 15-year-old former Renaissance ships — the Nautica, Regatta, and Insignia — Oceania has two new builds: the Riviera and Marina. The new ships may be the “foodiest” at sea, with the eponymous Jacques Pepin bistro and an authentic P...

Cunard

Anglophiles and those wanting to relive the glory days of ocean liners are drawn to this venerable fleet, which focuses on ocean crossings more than any other line. The atmosphere is sophisticated — many passengers are retirees — and the focus is on high-quality daytime activities, including lectures, classes, and movies in real theaters. The onboard pub serves up fish and...

Princess Cruises

Shorter sailings are filled with families and couples looking for a quality, midpriced experience; longer cruises draw an older — largely 50s and up — crowd of empty nesters and retirees. On sea days, you’ll find many complimentary classes — which range from computers to glass blowing and pottery painting — and supervised kids’ activities include educational options, such ...

Marella Cruises

Marella Cruises is a distinctly British cruise line, and most passengers who sail with them are from the UK. More is included in the cruise fare than with mainstream American-based lines, such as gratuities and standard alcoholic beverages. Travelers who choose Marella are generally over 50, but during school breaks and summer holiday, more families with young kids can be ...
