Recently, cruises have become more and more acceptable way of exploring the world by indulging in luxury and relaxation.
In addition, if you are not able to choose a single destination for your holiday or trip, cruises offer you the opportunity to explore several countries, or even several continents in a short period of time without any tiring trips by car or plane, but on the deck of a luxury cruise ship offering you all sorts of temptations.
Here are some of the most luxurious cruises in the world:
Allure of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built. There are seven accommodation sectors and a crew of more than 2,300 people.
The place also offers you a great range of meals variations, so that every traveller has a choice among a great variety of foods. On board there you can see some Broadway shows and relax by experiencing plenty of activities.
The ship is like a real floating city with all amenities you can think of. It departs from Florida and sails to some ports located in the eastern Caribbean – St. Thomas, the Bahamas, St. Maarten, as well as in the western part of the islands – from Jamaica to Mexico.
The cruise lasts seven days, but there are also some cruises for three, five or nine days throughout the whole year.
During the cruise trips, the entertainments you can get on the beach are just as important as the sailing itself.
And the name Disney is usually enough to make you understand what the program of this cruise involves. It combines a trip to the Bahamas with a little magic show in a theme park – Walt Disney World resort, and after that the ship brings its passengers to the private island Kastauey Kay that is was once owned by the famous Walt Disney.
The cruise trip includes eight days and seven nights on land and at sea, and also includes a visit to four theme parks. The cruise ship sails to Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, Alaska and some parts of the Caribbean.

The Caribbean Princess sails not only in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but it also goes much further. The ship stops at the port of New York, goes to Puerto Rico and then to Dublin, London and Glasgow.
The overall duration of the cruise varies, but it is usually at least two weeks, because it involves sailing to both American and European ports. The Princess takes her passengers to the Norwegian fjords and even offers an improvised outdoors cinema on the deck.

I worked as a singer on Regent Cruise Lines. Probably one of the most luxurious and most unaffordable ships out there. The itinerary was spectacular and I got paid to do it 🙂
