The Big Three: Short luxury cruises to the US and Caribbean

cruises to the us and caribbean

Don’t assume that just because your clients are travelling across the Atlantic, that they won’t consider a relatively shorter break. A transatlantic flight isn’t too bad if you are flying at the front of the plane. These three cruises – two of which are on yacht-style ships in the Caribbean – allow their guests to enjoy a casual elegance on board. Oceania, as our cover feature on page 18 confirms, is like going on holiday on board a Michelin-star restaurant.

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 short cruises to the US and Caribbean.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Just because a cruise is marked as luxury, don’t suppose that it is necessary formal. Some of the ships – especially the yachts – don’t even have formal nights or strict dress codes. It’s just assumed that guests will be looking respectable on board!
