A luxury cruise is the next leap up for cruise lovers. While it’s no small investment, when you consider everything that’s included, the value speaks for itself. Luxury and small ship cruises are marked by personalized service, spacious staterooms, fine dining, enriching onboard activities, and shore excursions all included. Luxury cruises also take you to out-of-the-way ports like Komodo Island or Portofino—exotic destinations not frequented by mainstream cruise lines.

Today’s luxury cruise ships, midsized and small, are very stable, steady vessels. Most people won’t notice any ocean movement. Only a gentle vibration from the engines. Though if you tend to suffer from motion sickness, your cruise staff can provide anti-nausea medicine and fresh green apples (our favourite natural remedy).
Most luxury cruise ships have complimentary access to the internet through shared computer terminals or Wi-Fi on your personal device.
To get access to your cruise documents and print them off, cruise guests are asked to complete pre-immigration/guest information, which is done through the cruise line website. You’ll be asked to provide passport, emergency contact, and other personal information. Completing pre-immigration is also your opportunity to pre-book shore excursions and arrange dining plans. Your AMA cruise specialist will be happy to help you through the pre-immigration process.
Your best bet is to pack clothing and accessories as if you were visiting at luxury hotel in your cruise’s destination. During the day (and whether you’re staying onboard or going ashore), most cruises are casual. In the evening, dress codes vary depending on the occasion. Most cruises offer specialty dinners or galas (like Cunard), so a dark suit or cocktail dress is recommended. But overall, most luxury and small ship cruise lines have a “country club casual” dress code in the evenings.
