All aboard! It’s time to roll out the red carpet and step into the land of luxury and style.
Many cruise ships have upped their game when it comes to offering guests the ultimate experience. Providing VIP treatment around the clock, from private butlers to Michelin-starred chefs, there are no limits as to what you can expect from a luxury cruise from companies like Bolsover Cruise Club.
So if you’re thinking of booking a cruise with a difference, here’s what you can look out for:
An Elite and Personalised Service
To give the cruise an edge, there will be a higher ratio between the crew and passengers so you can enjoy an efficient, friendly and attentive service. And with some luxury cabins, you may even bag your own butler! Other typical onboard services include 24-hour room service, poolside pampering and optimised accessibility.
A lot of luxury cruise ships will be smaller than the mainstream ones, which means fewer passengers will be on board. This provides you with more space and less hustle and bustle, giving you the chance to enjoy all the facilities on offer, without the hassle of queueing. As well as this most cruise ships come with guest relationship managers and destination concierges to almost completely remove the hassle from the holiday.
Poky cabins are a thing of the past on a luxury cruise (thank goodness!), making you feel right at home. For the top cabins, you can expect vast living areas and even private balconies with unprecedented sea views. Enjoy state of the art facilities and gorgeous modern luxury royal suites.
Plenty of Added Extras
From slippers and a robe waiting for you when you check in to fresh flowers in your room and a complimentary paper every day, these little perks will certainly make you feel as though you’re being thoroughly (and deservingly) spoilt. If you opt in for the high luxury cruises you will benefit from even more extras included in you fare such as meals, beverages, shore excursions and more.
One of the most indulgent aspects of a luxury cruise has to be the exemplary food on offer. Luxury cruises go all out to bring you jaw-dropping dishes that use fresh and local ingredients. Venues can vary between different cruises and so you’ll get a unique experience with each holiday. And with dining rooms designed to give you the best seaside views, you’ll while away many hours at your table.
When you do manage to drag yourself away from your dining table, there’s plenty of entertainment to find if you wish. From talented musicians performing their music live to full-scale musicals and shows running throughout. If that’s not for you then there is still a wide range of entertainment such as casino’s game rooms, cinemas and clubs, there’s something for all tastes.
To add to the feeling of relaxation and indulgence, many luxury cruise liners will have an onboard spa and gym. So, whether you’re into your fitness and want to join in with a yoga class or you fancy a massage on a daily basis, you’re bound to leave this holiday feeling energised and truly invigorated.
Last but by no means least are the destinations available on luxury cruise liners. As they’re smaller, they can easily reach the smaller ports that larger cruise ships can’t, giving you access to even more exclusive destinations (that aren’t teeming with people).
Overall, a luxury cruise is the ultimate in indulgence, providing you with the perfect chance to escape from reality and feel like a celebrity.
