Cruise Ship Types & Sizes

Add Your Heading Text Here

Large Cruise Ships

These are the largest cruise ships in the world with 2,000+ staterooms onboard and an overall passenger capacity of 4,000 to 5,000 at double occupancy. These modern, state-of-the-art cruise ships offer state-of-the-art accommodations, multiple main dining options, specialty restaurants, magnificent pool decks, and a variety of entertainment venues. These cruise ships have large, medium, and intimate meeting and presentation rooms, as well as theater-type venues with advanced AV equipment able to accommodate 1,000+ guests.

Medium-sized Cruise Ships

Today’s modern cruise ships offer world-class conference centers, theaters, and lounges with advanced AV equipment that can accommodate groups as small as 20 to greater than 1,000. Strictly observed health and safety protocols ensure guests can focus on the event at hand while ensuring their well-being and enjoyment. Medium-sized ships offer unique opportunities for exclusive incentive travel events, as well as full-ship charter opportunities where the guest list falls within 2,000 and 3,000 guests. These ships offer the same level of comfort and sophistication found on larger ships, but with the ability to provide a more intimate and personalized experience.

Luxury Cruise Ships

Luxury cruise ships are typically smaller but provide a larger space ratio per passenger. These ships range in size from 200-500 suites with an overall passenger capacity of 500-1,000 guests and offering the ultimate in luxury accommodations, service, and amenities. Given their size, these ships usually visit ports not accessible to the larger ships and thus are able to offer unique itineraries and destinations catering to well-traveled and sophisticated passengers. These smaller ships offer the perfect combination of high-end products, ultimate comfort, and unparalleled culinary experiences sought out for incentive travel, or potentially, for a full-ship charter with total control of shipboard activities, itinerary, and other event particulars. 

River Cruise Boats

The rivers of the world are once again attracting event planners and group organizers. European river cruising, in particular, has boomed in the last decade, and river cruise lines are expanding their itineraries and sailings to more and more exotic destinations. A river cruise boat can be the perfect venue for your next group event as the boat gently sails along the river banks of Europe passing by medieval castles, picturesque towns, and beautiful countryside. River cruise boats accommodate smaller numbers of passengers and thus are able to provide a more personalized experience to your group.
