Ultra-Luxury Cruising Defined
|Cruise Boutique by CRUISETIME Inc. is a cruise, tour and resort boutique agency providing you with the ultimate in professional and personalized care. The meticulous attention to detail and elegant service you’ve come to expect from a luxury vacation begins with Cruise Boutique by CRUISETIME Inc. where it's always time to cruise!
Cruising is one of the most service-oriented and service-intensive vacation experiences in the world. But ultra-luxury cruising is in a class by itself. Certainly, most cruise experiences are luxurious because they all provide pampering and service you'll not find elsewhere. But ultra-luxury cruising has all the rest outclassed! Just imagine. You pay your fare and never have to face the unpleasantness of being continuously charged throughout what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation - for every little thing including drinks, gratuities and even dinner reservations! On most ultra-luxury ships you are not required to be seated at the same dinner table every night at a specific time, often with strangers. During the dining room hours of operation you can enter whenever you want and sit at a table of your own choosing, alone or with people you want to get to know.
If occasionally you prefer to dine "en suite," you can order from the full dining room menu and have it delivered to your stateroom course by course.
Service is so elegant you'll never again want to travel any other way. Crew and staff are highly trained to provide nearly telepathic service and anticipate your every need. Your waiter will know your name and remember your preferences. Order a drink and the bartender will know what you like and how you like it presented.
Some of the newer innovations include Wi-Fi and flat-screen television sets in every suite. Turndown service and change of towels twice daily is a given on any cruise, but only on the luxury ships do you get the finest Frette linens and Egyptian cotton, oversized thick plush towels and a choice of pillows.
In addition to ocean cruising, there are all-inclusive resorts, private barge cruises in Europe and luxury personalized tours that offer every imaginable amenity. These are all part of the ultra-luxury vacation experience.
Please remember this...........
Whatever your choice, Cruise Boutique by CRUISETIME Inc. is your best source.
Small and Intimate
If you prefer small and intimate ships, we offer The Yachts of Seabourn, the Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend and the luxury small ships of Regent Seven Seas, and Silversea.
Some of these ultra-luxurious ships carry only 100 to 350 pampered guests and feature onboard lecturers who discuss subjects such as world history, the arts, finance and many other topics of interest to the well-traveled passenger. Open seating is always available in their dining rooms, so you can eat when you wish and with whom you wish.
Onboard activities are minimized while you are carried in comfort and luxury to exotic destinations around the globe.
A Traditional Ocean Voyage
If you prefer a more traditional cruise ship, but one that carries only six or seven hundred passengers (so different from the new mega-liners), there are the superb Crystal Symphony and the new Crystal Serenity,each with its own unique style of excellent service, sophisticated entertainment and gourmet dining. Special features of these ships are the yearly ‘round-the-world voyages lasting as many as three or four months, in addition to their shorter cruises to ports on all of the continents. Did you know you can book short segments of a world cruise, which will enable you to visit many faraway places that are not usually seen during other cruises?
Explore Your World
How about enhancing your knowledge of other cultures, animal and plant life in their own environment? Many expedition-type vessels give you the opportunity to take part in in-depth lectures and seminars while whale watching, exploring jungle rain forests, seeing the Alaska glaciers up close and personal, or visiting the penguins and seabirds in Antarctica or rare animals of the Galapagos. Sail in ultra-luxury to these exotic destinations on small expedition-type ships.
A Change of Pace
Experience a luxury cruise on some of the beautiful and exotic rivers of the world -- the Nile, Seine, Rhone, Po, Columbia, Snake, the Beautiful Blue Danube or the Yangtze River in China. Try a luxury barge cruise along the intimate waterways of France and Holland.
