The Differences Between Cruise Ship Sizes and What it Means for Your Cruise

One of the most important decisions to make when planning your cruise is choosing the ship that best meets your particular needs. Ships sizes range from megaships (over 4,000 passengers) to very small vessels and luxury yachts whose passengers number in mere dozens.

CruiseCompete has divided today’s ships into six categories for your reading pleasure:
XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL

Below is information on the benefits each type of ship provides to cruise travelers.


Extra, Extra Large Ships (XXL) – 4,000+ passengers
These megaships boast unparalleled options in entertainment and amenities. They truly give the impression of being on board a floating city and provide endless choices in dining, activities and shopping (some are so large as to even incorporate a “mall” area with brand name stores). If you desire a resort-type feel from your cruise or worry about sea-sickness, this may be your best option.
Some benefits of XXL ships:

  • A large variety of cabin options in every price range

  • Dining options that range from small, informal cafes to 5-star restaurants

  • Over the top entertainment options that include Broadway-quality shows, 3-D movie theaters, large casinos, extensive waterpark areas and more

  • Extremely comprehensive children’s programs and amenities

  • Increased ship stability; little sea motion

Example XXL ships:

  • Royal Caribbean International: Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and the Oasis of the Seas

  • Disney Cruises: Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy

  • Costa Cruises: Costa Diadema

Extra Large Ships (XL) – 3,000-3,999 passengers
These extra-large ships are a destination unto themselves and are especially good for families and multigenerational cruises due to the many amenities found onboard. There is something for everyone, and many cruisers enjoy their time onboard as much as they do the destinations they visit.
Some benefits of XL ships:

  • An abundance of cabin options in many different price ranges

  • A variety of dining options, ranging from ultra-casual to very upscale and formal

  • A popular favorite with families due to the extensive children’s amenities and programs

  • Round-the-clock facilities and activities, such as casinos, water parks, gyms and spas

  • Excellent entertainment options and Broadway-quality shows like Royal Caribbean’s productions of Chicago, Hairspray and Saturday Night Fever

Example XL ships:

  • Royal Caribbean International: Adventure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Voyager of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Independence of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas

  • Costa Cruises: Costa Fortuna
     

Large Ships (L) – 2,000 to 2,999 passengers
Large ships offer many of the same amenities as the XL ships, on a slightly smaller scale. They don’t necessarily require 
a ship map to navigate to entertainment and activity options, and tend to have more personal touches.

Some benefits of L ships:

  • A large number of cabin options in different price ranges

  • Numerous dining options, ranging from very casual to formal

  • A popular favorite with families due to the extensive children’s amenities and programs

  • Also popular with older cruisers, as the pace onboard is not as frenetic

  • A variety of activities, such as casinos, gyms and spas and often there are bridge instructors on longer itineraries

  • Entertainment options may include things like a fireworks display, outdoor movies and stage shows

  • Onboard lecturers are often more cerebral with topics like history, politics and geography.

Example L Ships:

  • Royal Caribbean International:  Legend of the Seas,  Splendour of the Seas,  Enchantment of the Seas,  Rhapsody of the Seas,  Vision of the Seas,  Grandeur of the Seas,  Brilliance of the Seas,  Jewel of the Seas,  Radiance of the Seas,  Serenade of the Seas,  Majesty of the Seas

  • Celebrity Cruises: Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Summit, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Solstice


Medium Ships (M) – 951 to 1,999 passengers

Medium ships generally offer a slower pace than their large counterparts, with fewer crowds, less noise and more modest offerings when it comes to activity and entertainment options. Many cruisers prefer this size of ship for its “relaxation” vibe. Many of these ships tend to be more luxurious with more personal service.
Some benefits of M ships:

  • Many of the premium cruise lines have ships that fall into this category

  • Several dining options

  • Medium-size ships still tend to have amenities like casinos, pools and spas

  • Entertainment options tend to include more enrichment activities

  • Attracts a more mature crowd that is focused on relaxation and enjoyment of the voyage

  • Smaller size of the ships open up options as far as itineraries and ports

  • Itineraries are likely to be 10 days or longer

Example M Ships:

  • Holland America Line:   HAL Maasdam, HAL Ryndam, HAL Statendam, HAL Veendam, HAL Amsterdam, HAL Rotterdam, HAL Volendam, HAL Zaandam, HAL Oosterdam, HAL Westerdam, HAL Zuiderdam, HAL Noordam

  • Princess Cruises: Coral Princess, Island Princess, Dawn Princess, Sea Princess, Sun Princess

  • Crystal Cruises: Crystal Serenity

  • Costa Cruises: Costa Classica, Costa Victoria, Costa neoRomantica

  • MSC Cruises: MSC Sinfonia

  • Celebrity Cruises: Celebrity Century

  • Celebration Cruise Line: Bahamas Celebration
     

Small Ships (S) – 950 passengers or less
Small ships fill a niche for cruisers that are looking for more in-depth exploration of the regions they visit. They can visit ports that are inaccessible to larger ships, and exotic itineraries are the standard. Most river cruise ships and almost all of the luxury lines have ships that fall into this category.
Some benefits of S ships:

  • Most cabins are suites and have balconies

  • Luxury and service are frequently a focal point of a small ship voyage

  • Amenities, while limited, tend to be very high end, including dining, shore excursions, spas and enrichment activities.

  • Small ships trend toward a truly all-inclusive fare

  • Smaller dining and shared areas lend themselves lively conversations and closer relationships with fellow passengers.

  • Itineraries tend to be 10 days or longer

Example S ships:

  • Holland America Line: HAL Prinsendam      

  • Princess Cruises: Ocean Princess, Pacific Princess    

  • Crystal Cruises: Crystal Symphony

  • Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager

  • Azamara Club Cruises: Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest  

  • Costa Cruises: Costa Voyager           

  • Viking Cruises: Viking Star

Extra Small Ships (XS) - 1-499 passengers
Very small ships offer a private, exclusive ambiance, along with personalized service and the advantage of being able to port almost anywhere. Passengers get a feel for the water and experience destinations in a very close-up, personal way.
Some benefits of XS ships:

  • The most important benefit of small ship cruising is an immersive experience in the destination. Very small ships allow an in-depth exploration of nature, culture, history and learning not possible on larger ships.

  • Passengers tend to be a well-traveled, worldly crowd who enjoy the pursuit of education and exploration of the destinations they visit

  • Very personal attention from the crew; with luxury cruises this translates to personal attendants that see to your every need

  • More solitude and the opportunity to relax and pursue your own interests

  • Seating is usually open, with no set tables

Example XS ships:

  • Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Seven Seas Navigator

  • SeaDream Yacht Club: SeaDream I, SeaDream II

  • Silversea Cruises: Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer, Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper

Cruise Line Types

One of the key elements of a happy cruise is finding the line that’s right for your particular needs.  The cruise lines fall into various categories, and to help you navigate the waters (so to speak) of choosing one, we’ve created a guide to what these categories mean.  Bear in mind, cruise lines can fall into more than one category, Luxury Expedition, for example, but these descriptions should help to steer you in the right direction. See which lines fall into these categories, and what amenities they offer, by visiting our All-Inclusive Chart.

CONTEMPORARY CRUISE LINES

The contemporary cruise lines offer a variety of cruise schedules and itineraries that are perfect for younger adults and family cruises. These are the lines with the largest ships, the most onboard entertainment options, and the widest variety of amenities. This great array of options allows you to choose the type of vacation experience you want once you are on board the ship.

Lines that fall into this category are:

PREMIUM CRUISE LINES

Premium cruise lines tend to be large, but not mega-type ships, though they offer similar voyages, plus voyages to exotic locales. Due to the size of these ships, they do not dock in the heart of the town or village like the ultra-premium lines. These lines cater to travelers seeking luxurious accommodations, enhanced dining, excellent service, extensive activities, and enrichment opportunities. The onboard experience is sophisticated and the service above average. These lines will have enhanced spa and wine options.   They tend to cater to more mature and discerning passengers who are seeking a sophisticated level of service, ship amenities, and accommodations at somewhat higher prices. These lines also offer children’s programs for all ages.

These lines are well suited for:

  • Those seeking both classic and modern luxury, contemporary and conservative design, and dining experiences in which the atmosphere is as important as the food and wine.

  • Families wishing to travel with young children where the environment is a little more subdued.

  • Families with teenagers

  • Families who are looking for an educational experience for the family

  • Family reunions and multi-generational families

  • 40- and 50-somethings looking for a couple’s vacation

  • Seniors looking for new friends

  • Solo travelers

  • Couples looking for romantic getaways

  • 40- and 50-somethings looking for a couple’s vacation

  • Destination weddings

  • Honeymoons

ULTRA-PREMIUM CRUISE LINES

The ultra-premium cruise lines tend to have smaller ships and offer voyages to popular ports, and unique itineraries featuring smaller, less-traveled destinations. They primarily cater to discerning passengers who are seeking a sophisticated level of service, ship amenities, and accommodations at upscale prices. Some lines may offer numerous included amenities. These lines are generally priced higher than the premium cruise lines.

Lines that fall into this category are:

These lines are well suited for:

  • Seasoned travelers

  • Adults who are destination-oriented and enjoy the finer things in life

  • Travelers looking for a boutique experience with a destination immersion.

  • Travelers who find the small touches make all the difference—from the service to the food to the ships themselves.

  • Adults seeking a “country club casual” experience with very upscale surroundings and amenities

ULTRA-LUXURY CRUISE LINES

These are high end cruises, both in price and in amenities.  They are designed for those who desire the finer things in life and have the budget for luxury.  These cruise lines specialize in service and will cater to the traveler’s every desire.

Lines that fall into this category are:

These lines are well suited for:

  • Travelers looking for exceptional service and a level of comfort and style rare in today’s world

SMALL SHIP CRUISES

Small ships fill a niche for cruisers that are looking for more in-depth exploration of the regions they visit. They can visit ports that are inaccessible to larger ships, and exotic itineraries are the standard. Most river cruise ships and almost all of the luxury lines have ships that fall into this category.

Lines that fall into this category are:

These lines are well suited for:

  • Adults looking for a sophisticated, intimate small ship experience

  • Travelers seeking an educational experience and a vacation filled with history, and culture

  • Seasoned travelers and, adults who are destination-oriented

  • Those seeking to meet experts in their field who have a vast knowledge of the cities visited

  • Those who enjoy traveling and enjoying the company of conversation with noteworthy academic experts

RIVER CRUISES

Unlike ocean cruises, rivers provide easy access to city centers. Passengers sail directly into the heart of every destination and dock in the middle of town, then walk right off the ship and move easily into whatever city or town you are visiting. You spend less time getting there and more time being there. A river cruise allows for a more intimate experience as well. Because most of these ships accommodate only 30 to 200 guests, it is easier to meet your traveling companions. You can share a drink with the couple you met on the day’s tour or dine with interesting passengers in an open-seating restaurant. Another benefit: you can also forget about waiting in long lines to embark, debark, or have a meal. These river cruises are immensely popular and keep growing. Many lines have begun adding amenities previously restricted to ocean cruise lines, such as French balconies attached to the rooms.

LUXURY HOTEL BARGES

The hotel barge became popular in the 1960s, and has now grown into a very large network of hundreds operating on the rivers and canals of France, Belgium, Germany, Scotland, and the UK. These luxury hotel barges vary greatly in size, configuration, scale and quality of accommodations, and standard and amount of catering. The largest barges take twenty-four guests, the smallest just four. All hotel barges have a high staff-to-guest ratio, but the smaller barges typically provide more personal attention and perhaps comfort. You can expect to get to know the other travelers well due to the intimate environment. These luxury hotel barges are wonderful for chartering and having your own private vacation.

EXPEDITION CRUISE LINES

Expedition cruise lines typically attract adventure and unusual thrills seekers. These lines have very unique and exotic destinations such as the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and Greenland. Expedition cruises tend to focus on very isolated scenery or wildlife up- close and personal.  On an expedition line, you will experience undergo a multitude of new experiences: new cultures, new foods, and new smells, as all of your senses are awakened as and you commune with nature. The amenities range from simple accommodations to ultra-luxury environments.

2016 Family Friendly Cruise Travel Planner [PDF] or Online book

While there is a perfect cruise vacation for everyone, not every cruise line is the ideal match for every family. Some lines have minimum age requirements for children (and pregnancy policies for expectant parents!), and others don't permit children to sail at all. In addition, while a line may allow children to sail, it’s not a given that the line has specially designed children’s programs in place. 

With these things in mind, determining the best cruise line for your family takes careful research, preparation and planning. The travel experts at CruiseCompete have composed the “2016 Family-Friendly Cruise Travel Planner,” which details every aspect of the family cruise vacation experience.

The “2016 Family-Friendly Cruise Travel Planner” is designed to kick-start your cruise vacation planning, and covers the entire spectrum of options with information on mainstream lines like Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International, Carnival Cruise Line and Norwegian Cruise Line, as well as unique alternatives like luxury, river and small ship excursion companies.

All information has been compiled in an easy-to-read format, with brief “at-a-glance” summaries to see if the cruise line fits your basic requirements, followed by more detailed information about the atmosphere on board, the destinations you can travel to and the specific programs available for children.
