Celebration Cruise Line: Bahamas Celebration Small Ships (S) – 500-950 passengers

Small ships fill a niche for cruisers who are looking for more in-depth exploration of the regions they visit. They can visit ports that are inaccessible to larger ships, and exotic itineraries are the standard. Most river cruise ships and almost all of the luxury lines have ships that fall into this category. Some benefits of S ships: • Most cabins are suites and have balconies • Luxury and service are frequently a focal point of a small ship voyage • Amenities, while limited, tend to be very high-end, including dining, shore excursions, spas, and enrichment activities • Small ships tend toward a truly all-inclusive fare • Smaller dining and common areas lend themselves to lively conversations and closer relationships with fellow passengers • Itineraries tend to be ten days or longer Exemplary S ships:

• Princess Cruises: Pacific Princess • Crystal Cruises: Crystal Symphony

• Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager, Seven Seas Splendor • Oceania Cruises: Oceania Insignia, Oceania Nautica, Oceania Regatta, Oceania Sirena • Silversea Cruises: Silver Spirit, Silver Moon, Silver Origin • Azamara Club Cruises: Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest, Azamara Pursuit • Costa Cruises: Costa Voyager • Viking Ocean Cruises: Viking Star, Viking Sea, Viking Sky, Viking Sun, Viking Orion

Extra Small Ships (XS) - 1-499 passengers Very small ships offer a private, exclusive ambiance, along with personalized service and the advantage of being able to port almost anywhere. Passengers get a feel for the water and experience destinations in a very up-close and personal way. Some benefits of XS ships: • The most important benefit of extra small ship cruising is an immersive experience in the destination. Extra small ships allow an in-depth exploration of nature, culture, history, and learning not possible on larger ships. • Passengers tend to be a well-traveled, worldly crowd who enjoy the pursuit of education and exploration
