From destination weddings to family gatherings, professional conventions, romantic getaways and more – cruise vacations offer a world of choice. You also have an incredible selection of cruise styles and types to help you enjoy exactly the experience you’re looking for.
Here’s a brief overview of the different kinds of cruises offered. Be sure to talk to your Howard Travel professional for expert guidance choosing the cruise that’s just right for you!
Popular Cruises are like “floating resorts”, offering plenty of choice and variety. These value and action-packed ships are brimming with features and activities for passengers of all ages, including children. With casual, laid-back atmospheres, most feature fun-filled day-time itineraries, and lively night-time entertainment.
Premium Cruises offer all the same amenities as a Popular cruise, but deliver added value and boast upscale features for the more discerning cruise traveller. On a premium cruise ship, passengers enjoy more spacious and refined accommodations, superior service, delectable gourmet cuisine and, of course, premium entertainment.
Luxury Cruises surpass every expectation, where lavish pampering and personalized service are just the beginning. Discover exotic cultures around the globe, with exclusive customized shore excursions. Treat yourself to savoury culinary treats created by world-renowned chefs. Enjoy a host of other luxurious amenities and, when you’re fully satiated, blissfully retire to exquisite accommodations.
Especially popular for discovering a variety of European destinations, River cruising offers unparalleled intimacy, comfort, and convenience. Ships often dock in the heart of town, making it easy to take in colourful hillside villages, picturesque castles, and ancient ruins from anywhere onboard. River cruises are also smaller and smoother than ocean cruises, navigating some of the world’s most popular rivers, enabling you to enjoy the view from elegant restaurants, welcoming lounges, inviting sun decks, or beautifully appointed staterooms.
