Your Guide to: 6 Star Cruises

6 star cruises are the best kind of cruises that you could ever experience when going on holiday at sea. Here at Deluxe Cruises, we are the specialist cruise agent that can get you on board the most luxurious cruise lines in the world. But what is a 6 star cruise and which cruise lines can offer you the 6 star cruising experience? Here, we will give you a guide to why 6 star cruises are the ultimate experience.


What are 6 Star Cruises?

6 star cruises, also known as ultra-luxury cruising, are awarded to the most exquisite cruise ships in the world. Six star cruise ships take luxury to a whole new level, as a 6 star cruise ship is defined by its size (less than 800 passengers), cabins (most cabins start at suite level with a balcony), all-inclusivity including alcoholic beverages and an impeccable service from all the crew onboard. It’s essentially as luxurious as you can get but with everything included.


What’s the Difference Between 5 and 6 Star Cruising?

In most industries, 5 star is the best rating you can give a service and you know you’re receiving fantastic products and impeccable services if something is rated as 5 stars. However, most people don’t know what 6 star cruises are and it can all become confusing, especially if you’re trying to book your first ever cruising experience. 6 star cruises are the next step up from 5 star cruises and are the best kind that you can get. What’s available on board a 5 star cruise and a 6 star cruise is virtually indistinguishable as you’ll be experiencing luxurious perfection on both kinds of ships. However, there are a couple of differences which sets the two ratings apart from one another.

6 star cruising is where absolutely everything is included in the cruise. With 5 star cruises, most things will be included such as soft drinks, food, gratuities and more. But you will often find that you need to pay for fine dining, alcoholic beverages, treatments at the spa, flights and other luxuries that you can get on board a cruise ship. However, with 6 star cruises, the price you pay upfront even gives you access to shore excursions!

Another difference between 5 and 6 star cruises is that you can find staterooms available on a 5 star cruise in addition to suite rooms. On a 6 star cruise, staterooms are not available.

6 star cruises will also offer a personalised, intimate experience with fewer passengers on board and more crew members, making the staff to crew ratio smaller.

You’ll fall in love with the exquisite, personalised service that you will receive along with amenities on board that are polished to perfection.

What if I don’t want Everything Included in my 6 Star Cruise?

With Luxury 6 star cruises, you don’t have many packages to choose from; you pay upfront for almost everything and you can pay extra for some onshore excursions and treatments at the spas. If you’re not interested in fine dining or alcoholic packages, then 6 star cruises may not be the cruise for you as you can’t cut these packages from your cost. A 5 star cruise may be best for you which allows you to pay for what you want to use. And if you change your mind about alcoholic beverages or fine dining, then in some cases, you can pay a day package or longer to enjoy these services at your leisure.
