Cruise ships have a range of accommodation to meet your budget and specific requirements. Some of the rooms can accommodate more than two people, making it easier to have your family share a cabin with you. The lowest cost rooms are the standard inside rooms.
Ship cabins range from a standard cabin, perfect for solo travellers to a sumptuous suite for those special occasion voyages. All cabins have the following amenities as standard: spacious wardrobe, bathroom with shower (deluxe suites have bathtub ), interactive TV, telephone, internet connection (payable), mini bar, safe, air conditioning. Room sizes range from 11 metres, up to 52 square metres.

Others will be up with the dawn, ready to take on the day with an action-packed itinerary of activities. Cruise… your way.
