By it’s very nature, cruising is luxurious. How could it not be? A cruise holiday always has and always will be one of, if not the most luxurious forms of travel.
However, to paraphrase George Orwell – All cruise ships are luxurious but some are more luxurious than others, and there is exactly where choosing a cruise line can be difficult some times.
