First Time Luxury Cruiser


This will be my first full inclusive luxury cruise with Regent Seven Seas. I'm doing a 10 day through the Eastern Med aboard the RSS Explorer.

Their brochures seems to show stuffy people. I know they are just models, but still...

So, I guess I really want to know is what is it really like aboard a luxury ship.

I notice that there are not many luxury cruisers on these site.

Surprised Ooookay. There aren't many lux cruisers here.

Okay, I'll just have to let you know when I get back (or while I'm onboard), IF I will even go.


Yes, let us know how it is! Someday, maybe!

Guess you may be right in regards to luxury cruisers on this site. Have you tried the youtube site to research what cruising life is like on a luxury cruise line? Try this link:

I would see what the parent companies are of some of the luxury cruises and see if I've been on any of their cruises. Those would give you a better idea of what to expect on that cruise line.

Thanks! I have seen most of, if not nearly all of those videos. But, I wanted to hear from anyone on this site. Most of those video are just tours, not really cruiser experience videos. The one "Day in the Life" video is just a promo video. 🙄

Thanks for replying!Big Smile

Regent Seven Seas is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.

Are the same ones who run the Norwegian Cruise ships Breakaway, Epic, Dawn, etc?

I've only sailed with Celebrity aboard Equinox and Infinty.

I believe they are!

Yes they are. They have NCL, Regent Seven Seas, and Ocenania.

Hello, PaulzyJC! I also consider myself as a First Time Luxury Cruiser since I will be sailing with Storylines in 2023. And the reason why I call myself as a Luxury Cruiser is that I define luxury as something that is combined with comfort and high-quality service.

Storylines is a luxury residential cruise ship. I decided to be on a residential cruise ship as it gives me the ability to travel around the world without leaving my home.

On the other hand, I described Storylines as a cruise ship with high-quality service because of its Inclusion Package that can be seen on their website.

I hope we and the other first-time luxury cruisers out there will have a great time on board!

That storyline looks pretty awesome
