The Big Three luxury: long North American and Caribbean cruises


From delicious meals to all-inclusive shore excursions, luxury cruises are all about indulgence and the longer you are on board a luxury cruise the more you will be indulged. These three cruises are among the best around. From Crystal Cruises’ Tokyo to San Francisco voyage to Oceania’s Caribbean 18-day extravaganza. One tip we would give to you is that guests should pack a gym kit – five course meals three times a day (plus snacks) can sure take their toll.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Luxury guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s 15-night and longer North American and Caribbean cruises.

Cruise Adviser top tip

While we wouldn’t suggest selling on price, sometimes it is a good idea to spell out the value of a luxury cruise. When you consider that you will often get alcohol, speciality restaurants, laundry, flights, transfers and sometimes even shore excursions included in the price. There isn’t all that much difference between a luxury and a premium proposition.
