Ultra-Luxury Cruises Except for Crystal ships, which carry about 1,000 passengers, the ships in this category carry about 500, while the yachts serve only about 100 passengers. Some offer luxury with all the attendant bells and whistles (like formal evenings, dramatic penthouses, and over-the-top meals by celebrity chefs), while others maintain an atmosphere of casual elegance. All provide impeccable service. The larger ships offer sophisticated enrichment programs and entertainment, such as language instruction and wine tasting. Here, too, the smaller ships access smaller, out-of-the-way ports worldwide and spend more time docked. These lines are well suited for: • Seasoned travelers. • Adults who are destination-oriented and enjoy the finer things in life. • Adults looking for a boutique type of experience with excellent service aboard intimate ships.

• Cruisers seeking a destination immersion with unique shore excursions. • Travelers seeking an over-the-top experience with ultra-luxury everything. • Cruises seeking an international atmosphere. • Travelers seeking a large ship with high-end amenities.

• Cruisers with a great deal of knowledge about the fine arts and cuisine, and experts in matters of taste. • Travelers looking for exceptional service and a level of comfort and style rare in today’s world. Crystal Cruises
