To landlubbers and sea lovers alike, this is a quaint little plea of the idea of an unforgettable sojourn that goes out to you. There is a certain luxe escape that has been meandering into the world and is making its histrionic presence felt, lap by lap and shore to shore. Read? Most luxurious cruises in the world. Cruises - they indeed give you reason to believe that life can take off in that whirlwind of emotion and give you a good time with a good spin. Here’s how:

Silversea Cruises

The label is regal and so is the show that one gets to witness; then only till the warm-up fades away, you realise this is as real as fantasy could get! One of the most exciting aspects of the luxury cruise is the relish found in exclusive butler services, Bulgari bath products, and Egyptian cotton linens that form the core of what begins to even spell “luxury” onboard here.

What: a fleet of 8 ships, housing only suites with open private verandahs
Dollars: 52550 onwards
Highlight: 2014 World Cruise - Los Angeles, Hawaii, Equator, Auckland, Sydney, Philippines, Hong Kong - there are a lot of things to do here that demand your attention, Shanghai, Koh Samui, Singapore, Sumatra, Cochin, Jordan, Greece, Monte Carlo, Barcelona and many other places in between.

Crystal Cruises

An old player in the game and a top ranker in customer satisfaction since times immemorial, read spoiling you till you gush at the thought of any more tongue twirls of “for you.” What makes this luxury cruise line a cut above the rest is the personal understanding of your preferences based on your moods. So fresh flowers wherever you step in for a moment, frette bathrobes, a nightly turndown, and wellness seminars follow (arranged specially by the Cleveland Clinic), for you to truly rejuvenate while the burst of glory lasts on one of the best luxury cruises in the world.

What: 2 ships with a capacity of 1000 passengers
Dollars: approximately 4900

Also, the gourmet fine dining experiences onboard with bars on the floor are where you and your guests can enjoy complimentary pleasures, or better put are simply pleasures which complement the little trail of sinful indulgences that you are led on to.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Voyages, the kind that you grew up fantasising are not a pushover fallacy here. This fleet of luxury cruise lines attempts to engage in exactly one of those colourful mirages and bring it alive for you. Your choice of poison mind you will not lie in the spirits of yonder or the current but in the choice of a destination near or afar, simply because the geographical sea routes adopted are sure to make you sigh! Some of the best luxury cruises in the world, and their chosen destinations are always a unique blend, especially in terms of package and ports of arrival and departure.

What: Regent Seven Seas Mariner - the first world all-suite, all-balcony ship, catering to 700 guests
Dollars: 20000 onwards
Highlight: Their chosen destinations are always a unique blend, especially in terms of package and ports of arrival and departure. A voyage from Lima to Peru, is worth the explorer’s gaze in you! Lima is on a swing in terms of the weather, there couldn’t be a better time to visit based on the weather, to enjoy a quick swim.

Oceania Cruises

Festivities are always up and about in this crackle of a cruise. Onlooking the shores, you are almost mulled over with the soft notes of music in the background. The best part however is the view of the sea, since one is much closer to the waters as compared to larger luxury cruises. Getting into a sombre, contemplative mode whilst at it, it is almost inevitable to miss the sight of the waves of the sea caressing the beautiful built of this lady.

What: 5 ships in tow and the Insignia on the forefront, look out for the deck views from this mid-sized baby of the fleet, as you will be closer to the waters.
Dollars: approximately 1800 onwards
Highlight: Istanbul to Athens - here onboard the newly launched baby of the cruise line - Insignia, will give you a peek-a-boo into the spiritual and the worldly alike. Join in with your flutes to an encore accompanied with a celebratory rapture by the Founding Chairman together with his wife onboard thereafter! You could also take a look at some of the best luxury airlines in the world on the charts to fly from these beautiful destinations.

Paul Gauguin Cruises

Design equals panache when it comes to this ethereal beauty clad in white. The ship is comparatively smaller, but is designed in such a fashion so as to enable it to sail into smaller ports and to give you a more exclusive on-the-dock experience. Honeymooners can maroon themselves in various pockets of the luxury cruise, as it is designed to give you the privacy that you deserve to be one with the aura of harmony in one of the best luxury cruises in the world.

What: This is the most luxurious cruise to set sail to Tahiti from anywhere in the world. It takes in 332 guests at a go and accommodates most living arrangements with attached balconies.
Dollars: 3995 onwards
Highlight: Specials on the cards here are - the acute geography of Tahiti, French Polynesia, the South Pacific region and South East Asia.

Put on the chinos and keep the point-and-shoot ready. Tinkle your flutes and gear up for some lovely banter atop some of the most luxurious cruises in the world, as there is no such feeling quite like it. To crystallise the whole idea, I’d like to quote what Ernest Hemingway once lovingly said, “It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.”
