Luxury Mediterranean cruise
Luxury Mediterranean cruise is a must-see. The temperate climate, the blue color of the sea becoming even emerald green in some stretches of coastline. Furthermore, the countries touched on these cruises in Europe are rich in history. But I want to suggest you something original: to spend your holiday on board a sailing ship, the Club Med 2, a 5-masted vessel. The style is modern but the atmosphere refers to the Pacific Ocean.
Life on board? You can spend it in the wellness center or you can taste the typical dishes and the more refined cuisine. Even if you love water sports, among luxury cruises this is the right solution for you. Sports activities such as water-skiing and windsurfing are scheduled. The cruise destinations? Among them, there are the Cyclades Islands, Capri. Or Spain, with the Balearic Islands and the big coastal cities. And finally, France, with the French Riviera and Provence.

Single cruise: the best luxury ships
If you want to tailor your cruise experience, you can choose a single cruise. It is the most romantic setting to meet your soul mate, a wonderful place with comfort, discos, and restaurants. The shipping companies give a little push to the solitary hearts looking for love. How do they do it? Through specific formulas. For example, offering you the possibility to share the cabin with an unknown person. Sometimes a distinction is made based on age to promote knowledge among peers.
Are you looking for some ideas about the itinerary to follow and the cruise line to choose? You can choose the Crystal Cruise, a line which is famous for its luxury cruises. You can start your single cruise leaving from Hamburg, in Germany, stopping in the romantic Amsterdam and passing through Kristiansund in Norway.
The experience continues until Newcastle in the north of England. While you wait to get to these place, you can go to the wine cellars to taste fine wines or relax you with a massage in the onboard spa.
There are also luxury cruises for gay singles. You can actually enjoy the legendary Danube River Cruise, which crosses one of the most important rivers in Europe, the Danube. You will sail on the Avalon Expression, a 5-star floating jewel of the Holland American company. This boat offers its guests a library, a swimming pool, a spa, a disco, and much more. It leaves from Budapest and then stops in Bratislava, Vienna, Durnstein, Aschach, Regensburg, Roth. The final stop? Prague.
Luxury yacht cruises
There are other alternatives to experience. You have to know, the universe of luxury cruises has no boundaries. You can even opt for yacht cruises. If your dream is to go to the Maldives, Sudan or Egypt, you can do it with a luxury yacht. With this type of boat, you can discover these places in a particular way, visiting secret beaches or local villages.
I suggest you book a luxury yacht: the Duke of York or Count Max. These “palaces” on the water have sumptuous bedrooms, living rooms with indoor cafes, restaurants to enjoy every type of cuisine and, finally, wellness centers, to renew spirit and body. Last but not least: an entire crew will be at your service.
This travel experience is ideal for those who enjoy exploring the coast, fishing, and snorkeling. And why not, cruises with luxury ships and yachts are dream places.
Luxury cruises to the Caribbean
If you choose a Caribbean Cruise, you can embark on MSC Divina, named after Sophia Loren. This is among the most luxurious cruises in the world. What will you find there? A real stone square, stairs of Swarovski crystals and, what a surprise, all of a sudden you will be on board the MSC yacht club, a ship in the ship.
You can visit rooms and restaurants. And that’s not all. You will have the opportunity to admire original works of art and the Sophia Loren Royal Suite. A suite with a reproduction of the actress’s dressing room. In a moment, you will feel like a movie star.
And if the eastern cities fascinate you, spend your holidays on Celebrity Cruise. This queen of the sea begins her route from Singapore to Hong Kong, Manila, and Borneo. The suites are 133 square meters with terrace and hydro massage area. In addition, the rooms are equipped with butler service for unpacking, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restrooms are in marble. If you are looking for relaxation, you can spend the sailing time in the spa, choosing personalized treatments.
Small cruise ships
Maybe you prefer exclusive cruises in small ships (but not too much). You need a warm and unconventional environment that lets you get in touch with the surrounding nature.
How about organizing an untouched trip between Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore? You can take the Star Clipper sailboat to enjoy this experience. Close your eyes and leave your imagination free.
