Europe Luxury Cruise
We personally and through our clients qualified the following cruise lines as top luxury products. Through our arrangements with these suppliers we aim to sell Europe Cruises on these Cruise Lines at the absolute best price in the marketplace.
None of the Europe cruises on this page are cheap, on the contrary they are relatively expensive, but they offer the best value in relation to other products sailing the Europe cruise itineraries for 2006. However they offer you the best in Scandinavia & Russia Cruises, Mediterranean Cruises and Western Europe and the British Isles Cruises.
This page has been assembled with the following criteria in mind.
- The ship to be called luxury has to feel like a ship not a floating hotel.
- It has to be roomy with a low passenger count and high crew to passenger ratio.
- The crew has to be professional, easy to communicate with.
- The cuisine has to be an experience with emphasis on quality and presentation.
- Last but not least we want to see value for money spent. Little touches that make a cruise vacation a memorable experience. We don't want to be nickeled and dimed to death.

Crystal Cruises is at present perhaps the most highly rated of all the "big ship" cruise lines. The line has a very high repeat passenger rate, and many of Crystal cruises sell out early.
Silversea Cruises - Breathtaking in every respect. Excellence in every detail. A world of easygoing elegance without an ounce of pretension. Perhaps that is why Silversea Cruise has received the very highest awards from authoritative guidebooks and publications: 'Number One' four consecutive years in Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards; 'World's Best Small Ship Cruise Line' for three years in Travel & Leisure's World's Best Awards; and a coveted 'Six Stars' from Fielding's Guide to Worldwide Cruises for three years in a row.
- Regent Cruises (formerly known as Radisson Seven Seas Cruises) was voted the 'World's Best small Cruise Line' for 2000, according to readers of Travel & Leisure magazine.
Regent 7 Seas Cruise Six Star Distinctions include:
- Extraordinary ships where an expertly trained European staff will cater to your every whim. You'll savor the finest cuisine at sea and sail to the most intriguing ports of call.
You'll revel in the most stimulating enrichment programs and marvel at the world-class entertainment. This is Oceania Cruises.
Windstar's ships offer the exclusivity of a small ship cruise with the informality of a sailing vessel. Crisp sails angle against a sky, blue as a dream. Teak decks warm the soles of your bare feet. A staff member, gracious yet unobtrusive, seems to magically appear with an ice-cold rum punch or an extra fluffy pillow just as you've thought of it. Your dress is casually elegant - a style unique to Windstar where no jackets or ties are required. A perfectly prepared salmon fillet is whisked onto the linen cloth before you, followed by a heavenly crème brulee'.
You toast your mutual exquisite taste in choosing Windstar cruise, and each other.
SeaDream I and SeaDream II, two small exclusive yachts offer a casual, form free holiday with plenty of freedom for personal choice. They cater to the affluent, discerning, active travelers who have highly personal and casual lifestyles. The average age of SeaDream guests is 45
years. Their 7 day Mediterranean Cruise itineraries call at yacht harbors not cruise ports. The latest in sea-toys underline the casual ambiance. Staterooms and service are in keeping with the lifestyle of its guests.
