Cruise Ships I Most Want to Check Out

There are some cruise ships that I read about all the time, have lusted over pictures and desperately want to go on. Some I’m not even entirely sure I’d want to spend a week or two on, I just really want to have a nosy at their exciting new features!

Here’s a few of the cruise ships that I most want to explore…

Queen Elizabeth

Cunard’s newest liner, Queen Elizabeth, is a mid sized ship which can take just over 2000 passengers so it’s size definitely appeals to me. What also appeals to me is the elegance and grandeur that this ship possesses.

The ship is art-deco inspired and has a Michelin starred chef cooking in Todd English’s Verandah restaurant.

You can go for fancy afternoon teas in the main dining room, dance the night away in the utterly glamorous ballroom or even enjoy the service from your own butler if you opt for a Queen’s Grill Suite. It sounds divine!

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas, and sister ship Allure of the Seas, can carry more than an astounding 6,000 passengers. Whilst I think this would be too big a ship for me to really enjoy (just think how long it would take you to get back to your cabin?!) as I’m a fan of medium sized ships this is definitely one that I’d like to visit for a day or two to check out all the exciting features it has.

There’s a Boardwalk where you can ride on a real carousel, stroll through ‘Central Park’, the first living park at sea, and have a nosy in the boutiques, restaurants and bars here. There are two rock climbing walls, an amphitheatre style AquaTheatre where there are synchronised swimming shows and there’s even a zipline through the top section of the ship. I love the sound of all these activities that you don’t find on many other cruise ships and I’d definitely be the first in the queue for the zipline!

Silver Explorer

Silver Explorer is Silversea’s expedition ship and holds just 133 passengers. I’d love to go on board this ship as much for the exciting destinations it visits as it’s fabulous features. (You can read all about my time on board Silver Shadow last year).

Silver Explorer can visit some of the world’s most remote destinations thanks to it’s compact size. It has visited both of the polar regions and has a fleet of Zodiac boats which allow passengers to get onto dry land and explore.

In the evenings you can relax in total luxury with all-inclusive drinks (including champagne and premium spirits), enjoy butler service in your luxury suite and you don’t even have to worry about tipping on your cruise as all gratuities are included.

Disney Fantasy

Everyone loves a bit of Disney and I’m no exception to that so I’ve been wanting to try out a Disney Cruise for ages!

Disney Fantasy is the newest of the Disney ships and can hold 4000 passengers, making it another very large cruise ship.

Surprisingly on a Disney ship there are adults only restaurants, pools and areas so you could enjoy a Disney Cruise experience even without children.

There are Disney shows on board (Aladdin is one that is featuring at the moment!), Disney characters to meet and greet you and even huge waterslides on board. Get me on there now!

Royal Princess

Royal Princess, Princess Cruises newest and largest ship, has one feature in particular that I’m desperate to try out – the SeaWalk! It’s a glass platform that extends out over the sea, 125 feet up! I’ve got a bit of a head for heights so I love the sound of this and it’s such a different feature for a cruise ship to have.
