CRUISE LINE PROFILES

Prow's Edge sails in with over 50 profiles of the major cruise lines offering cruises around the world.

From luxury cruises to contemporary cruise lines, from the chilly Antarctic to the sunny Caribbean, from adventure cruises in Alaska, to river barge cruises along the waterways of Europe, there is a wide selection of cruise lines to choose from.

And every cruise line is different and it's becoming more and more difficult to figure out who is who and what they are all about. The Prow's Edge cruise line profiles give a brief overview of what each cruise line is about and a taste of what they offer.









 CONTEMPORARY / MAINSTREAM CRUISE LINES

Contemporary Cruise Linesand Mainstream Cruise LinesAlso sometimes referred to as the mainstream cruise lines, the most popular contemporary cruise lines offer value cruises on generally large ships. These are usually the largest vessels at sea with the largest number of guests. Contemporary cruise lines include Carnival Cruises, Costa Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), and Royal Caribbean International.

 PREMIUM CRUISE LINES

Premium Cruise LinesPremium cruise lines offer upscale cruises compared to the contemporary cruise lines, with a more subtle if not subdued ambience. Although not necessarily smaller than their contemporary sisters, premium cruise line vessels typically carry fewer passengers and offer more space per guest. Premium Cruise Lines include Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line (HAL), P&O Cruises and Princess Cruises.
