New Trend Cruises are Now for Softer Prices

Long-time exclusively reserved for the wealthy old people, cruises are booming. Companies compete in originality to attract more clients. In 2012, the luxury cruise market recorded an increase of 12 %. More than 500,000 people have so opted for this vacation mode. The old type of a hobby reserved for an elite, rather old, rather kitsch, has the lead in the wing. The cruise is not cheesy: the audience has grown by democratizing and become younger: the average age of people who choose to spend their vacations dropped from 60 to 40 years since some decades. Resolutely modern, it is trendy and comes in different ways.

Floating palaces
The main cruiser owners (MSC cruises, Costa cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Silver Sea, Royal Caribbean …) try to excess the imagination to offer ever larger ships, still more luxurious, more surprising. The old Titanic would be very tiny beside the jewels that now ply the seas and oceans:

The Costa Luminosa, which can accommodate 2860 passengers, is aptly named, with its multitude of chandeliers and lamps that light passes through the translucent walls that separate bars and lounges. This giant boat is also focusing on new technologies , offering a golf simulator , Formula 1 , a 4D cinema,  …

MSC Splendida , out of the shipyards of Saint- Nazaire , is the largest cruise ship ever built for a European ship owner . It can accommodate nearly 4,000 passengers, mainly housed in cabins with private balconies. Remarkably decorated with noble materials, it includes among others futuristic theatres, a casino, several pools, some covered, bars and restaurants, and a nightclub suspended over 150 water jets.

But it is the American Royal Caribbean holds the palm of gigantism through the Oasis of the Seas. With its 360 m long, 47 m wide and 2,706 cabins, the ship accommodates nearly 6300 passengers, served by over 2000 crew. Its size is such that it is designed around neighbourhoods (“Central Park,” “Royal Promenade ” …) lined with shops and restaurants of luxury. Add to those stunning open-air garden, aquatic theatres … not enumerate all the sights of this colossus.

Theme Cruises
To provide customized cruises to customers, all cruises develop many offers both varied and targeted oenology, gastronomy, ballroom dancing … Vacationers can indulge their hobby around animations and activities planned for this purpose.

Sometimes though, the destination of the cruise used to support the activities. Thus, archaeology enthusiasts, you discover the Egyptian splendour down the Nile and you are walking during stopovers. Crazy skiing, cruising is for you, as long sail to Scandinavia: admire the Norwegian fjords before enjoying almost empty tracks by hiking back to your boat. Nice Halong bay cruise in private boat in 2 days 1 nightand Hanoi city tour in 1 day before going to Singapore harbour

For activities may be less cultural or sports (although …), you can opt for ” cruises dating ” for singles, gay and lesbians … If It is especially to celebrate , so we found on board vessels nightclubs with DJs, theatres, cinemas, video games …Finally, if your criterion choice is primarily the budget , know that there are also cruises “low cost” which, on the model of airlines still offer quality services. Easy cruise with, for example, the boats are certainly smaller, less luxurious, but the rooms are comfortable, and passengers are also entitled to jacuzzis, spas and other entertainment.

And if you have just one day before you, but want to let you go to hover over the water, consider the river cruises: pleasant dinner cruises are organized on the rivers of the major cities. Reservations recommended.
