Recently I’ve talked with some people that think that the luxury cruise market is only for the uber-rich, or star-struck contest winners that wander around Titanic-like ships with first and third classes. The largest cruise lines in the world in terms of number of annual passengers (more than five million) as well as fleet count, it has 26 ships that sail North America and Europe, with about half of them having a capacity between 2,500 and 3,900 guests.
Also adding to the appeal: deals exclusive to Priceline, plenty of bonus amenities (examples include up to $1,000 in onboard credit, third and fourth guests sailing free, and $50 off shore excursions), no money down to book certain sailings, frequent onboard credit sales, an 800 number to call should you need assistance while booking, and a loyalty club that’s combinable with every cruise line’s loyalty program.

Celebrity Cruises currently sails around the world with a fleet of 13 ship, ranging in size from its petite Xpedition-class vessels, which carry 16 to 100 passengers, to its large 2,800- to 3,100-passenger Solstice class and 2,900-passenger Edge class, which debuted in late 2018 with Celebrity Edge, an edgy ship (pun intended) designed to appeal to a non-cruising clientele with innovations like Eden, a three-story hybrid experientialâ€ restaurant, craft cocktail lounge, and performance venue, and Le Petit Chef at Le Grand Bistro, a dinner restaurant that features a 4D animation projected on your plate throughout the course of your meal.
One of the various factors which make a cruise line different from the rest is the destination to which the cruise ship may visit and go. The best cruise line may take its passengers to various destinations (such as the Caribbean Sea, Panama Channel, Mexico Canal, Hawaii Island or Alaska) at a price which is reasonable.
