Small Luxury Cruise Lines from Fort Lauderdale

Small luxury cruise ships provide a level of personal attention that cannot be matched on larger ships. They also can fit into more ports in exotic destinations than larger ships. The four small luxury cruise lines are: Seabourn, Seadream, Silversea, and Windstar.

Seabourn was the first small ship ultra-luxury cruise line. Their ships carry just 450 to 600 passengers. Journeys are truly all-inclusive: all dining venues are complimentary; there are open bars throughout the ship; and tipping is not required or expected. Accommodations are spacious suites. Staff-to-guest ratios are high.

Seadream "yachts" carry only 112 guests. The family-owned company is dedicated to providing a casual yet luxurious holiday. Pretty much everything is included: stateroom, gourmet meals, room service, gratuities, open bar, wine with lunch and dinner, equipment for water fun, and crew-led shore activities. They offer Caribbean cruises in the winter and Mediterranean cruises in the summer. Overnight stays enable you to fully appreciate the ports of call.

Silversea cruise ship
Windstar Cruise Line

Silversea has 6 small luxury cruise ships. The line also has 3 expedition ships that go on real adventures. Their largest ship carries just 540 guests. All accommodations are ocean-view suites (most have private verandas) with butler service. Cruises include selected wines, premium spirits, specialty coffees, soft drinks, gratuities, and room service. Open-seating dining as well as specialty dining venues. Silversea offers cruises to more than 800 ports on seven continents, more than any other cruise line.

Windstar was voted best small ship cruise line by Conde Nast Travelers. The ships pamper just 148 to 310 passengers. Three of the six ships have sails, the other three do not. Enjoy watersports off the platform at the back of the ship. Voyages are inclusive of exclusive private events, all meals in all restaurants, non-alcoholic beverages, fresh flowers and fruit, deck barbecue, entertainment, and champagne reception.

Experience for yourself the obtainable luxury small ship cruise.
