If personalized service and having someone at your beck and call is important to you opt for a luxury cruise ship. Cruise ships also come in a wide range of sizes although size may not be the primary concern. Cruise West and SeaDream Yachts offer some of the smallest ships under 200 passengers. Small ships will offer a more personalized experience and their size allows them to visit smaller and less-traveled ports. As a down side smaller ships arent able to offer the extravagant entertainment of larger ships. If youre prone to sea-sickness a larger ship is definitely the better option. The larger the ship the less noticeable the rolling motion of travel at sea. One last consideration that may not come immediately to mind - is this a maiden voyage or will you be traveling on an established ship? While the first thought may be \"the newer the better\" there are disadvantages to being on the first trip of a new cruise ship.
I was invited to attend the exclusive 2-night (July 2 - 3 2010) pre-inaugural sailing for NCLs newest and largest ship the Norwegian Epic. Departing from NY City the sailing began with the ships naming ceremony which was hosted by comedian Jeff Garlin and featured the ships godmother Reba McEntire. Adding to the festivities was the Macys 4th of July Fireworks show which was broadcast live from the Epic on national television (WNBC). It included musical performances by Justin Bieber Enrique Iglesias and LeeAnn Rimes. As I have experienced many times in the past the folks at NCL really know how to throw a party! But lets focus on their new ship the Epic.
Certainly everything is brand new and there are certain bragging rights when you can say \"I was on the first voyage of ship XYZ.\" But the first cruise is sometimes a shake-out cruise. The staffs probably havent worked together before and are still trying to come together as a team. They may be inexperienced and going through on-the-job training. And of course a ship is a massive construction project just like building a new apartment or office building and just like a new building a new ship may have glitches in the plumbing or the wiring to be worked out. If you want perfection on your cruise you may want to make sure that youve chosen an established ship.
