Doing your research before you book is key to finding the right sort of ship and itinerary that suits your lifestyle and budget. There are many tempting cheap offers floating around but if you are looking for a cosy couples getaway then a bargain-priced three-night sampler cruise on a ship with two or three thousand fellow passengers is not going to fit the bill.
Whatever sort of cruise you choose – resort-style, boutique-luxury, leisurely river or adventure – you want to make the most of your precious time on board. And if you are cruising for the first time, there are lots of things you can do to save time and money that might not apply to land-based holidays.
All deck plan pages include basic statistical information, such as:
- year built, vessel class and sister ships (among the fleets of all lines).
- total number of cabins, plus number per type (Inside, OceanView/RiverView, Balcony, Suite).
- capacity - passengers (normal and max/double occupancy) and crew capacity.
- number of passenger accessible decks, number (in any) of swimming pools and whirlpools (hot tubs), passenger elevators, water-slides.
- On some ships is additionally provided information regarding name origin/meaning, service history, fun facts.
Our cruise ship deck plans will show you what is what (activities, amenities, serving what purpose), located where, changed when (newest upgrades / latest refurbishment review). All dining venues (restaurants and food bars) reviews also contain basic menu/cuisine information, and whether the dining options are complimentary, at surcharge PP or a la carte priced.
