Frequent questions about Cruises

How to choose your perfect cruise?

Currently the cruises offered have been developed significantly and there are lots to choose from.  We are beginning to catalogue the ships according to the tates of the customers so we can find certain ships aimed specifically at non smoking couples, seniors, handicapped etc.

There is no official document but there is different criteria for classifying ships:

Ratio per tonnage and ratio per passenger of communal areas are key factors.  If the ratio is higher then it is much easier to enjoy the facilities the ship has to offer.  IT IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR WHEN CHOOSING A SHIP.

Ratio between types of cabins, interior, exterior or suites.

Ratio between crew and passenger - the higher the ratio the better the service but sometimes this is in theory.


And of course there are other factors to take into consideration:

- The year the ship was constructed and if any renovations have been done

- Gastronomy levels

- Services levels: Casino, Spa, Sauna, Gym, Creche, Library, Theatre etc.

- Level of activities available


Intimate - up to 250 passengers, these are idela for those guests seeking peace and tranquility.

Small - 250 to  500 passengers, They have a gross tonnage of 2.000 - 20.000 tonnes.  the service is usually of a higher standard and onboard activities are very flexible between ports.  n the other hand, public spaces are usually smaller and more limited than on larger ships.

Medium - 500 to 1500 passengers.  They have a gross tonnage of 20.000 to 50.000 tonnes.  These are seleceted by the majority of the public.  They have a varity of common spaces and a programme of structured activited and entertainment with a high level of satisfaction.

Mega Cruise: over 2.000 passengers.  They can actually accommodate between 1500 and 3500 passengers and have a gross tonnage of from 50.000 to 150.000 tonnes. These are authentic cities on the sea!  If you are looking to meet people and have fun this is your cruise.  They have a varity of entertainment options for families.  Public areas are average in size.

Ratio per passenger is a very important factor and is indicated based on tonnage and the number of passengers and the total space available per passenger.  Obviously the higher this ratio is the better.

Passenger capacity: Indicates the total number of passengers the ship can accommodate. 

Number of cabins: there are four types of cabins - Interior, Exterior, Exterior with balcony and Suites.
