Cruising on a Resort-Style, Large-Ship

I must thank you, Marie, and Jim for all of your hard work and attention to my group and making our cruise such an enjoyable occasion. From the feedback from the group....EVERYONE had an absolute GRAND TIME!

Large cruise ships are like floating resorts complete with swimming pool, casino, full service spa, gym, disco, shopping, in-room movies, broadway-style shows, and plenty of on-board activities both day and night.

Resort-Style Cruise Itineraries

Resort-style cruises sail popular itineraries in the Caribbean and the Europe/Mediterranean which are the only ones with ports large enough to accommodate these large ships. Resort-style, large ship cruises are a popular option for vacations of all kinds, multi-generational travel, family reunions, girlfriend getaways, and more, with plenty of choices to keep everyone entertained.

Dining Arrangements on a Resort-Style Cruise

This was my first cruise and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you for making this a memorable trip for me.

Guests can typically choose traditional dining with a specified table, dining time and the same table companions every night or anytime dining which allows you to dine when and with whomever you please. Guests also have the option of dining in the ship's specialty restaurants for a surcharge. On resort-style cruises, the dress code for most nights is casual chic and there are usually 1-3 nights where the dress code for dinner is formal. The number of formal nights varies by ship and cruise length.

Resort-Style Cruise Accommodations

Stateroom selections typically include: Suites (top-of-the-line) in varying sizes and usually with a full furnished balcony. Suites typically have the most prized onboard locations. Balcony cabins usually have the next best location and are usually offered in your choice of ocean view or an interior promenade view. Most include a full furnished balcony while others have a smaller (French) balcony. Ocean view cabins are located on many decks and may come with a port hole (most economical in this category), or a picture window. The most economical stateroom is the interior cabin which is available on many decks throughout the ship. Although usually decorated in similar fashion to the ocean view cabins, there are no windows in this cabin category.

Choosing & Booking a Resort-Style Cruise

Choose a large, resort-style cruise ship if you want abundant shipboard activities, casinos, and Las Vegas-style shows.
