Seven Differences Between a Contemporary Cruise Line and a Premium Cruise Line Like Holland America Cruises

ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 27, 2011) — No matter which cruise you choose you will be wowed! Unequivocally, when the reviews come in, there is just not any other vacation that constantly receives such high satisfaction scores as a cruise vacation.

The cachet of vacationing on a cruise ship while at sea, the food, the festive atmosphere, the ports of call, the entertainment … the lines are constantly trying to increase the ‘wow’ factor.

Some of the ships will just have more bells and whistles, like, for instance, automobiles–from the Chevrolet HHR, which receives very favorable reviews and is first in class for a compact multipurpose vehicle, to the Cadillac Escalade, which also has extremely high rankings according to J.D. Power and Associates for the large premium crossover SUV class.

A premium line, for example, such as Holland America Line, will offer a more understated elegance and this may be the right choice for you,” says Tiffany Neidhardt, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Cruises-N-More (

The differences between a contemporary line and a premium line for parents taking their children and for those just taking a vacation………..are detailed below.

Consider these 7 differences between what you’ll experience on a premium versus a contemporary line:

1. For the family … While both premium and contemporary lines will offer programs for children, you will likely have more opportunity for “down time” as a family on premium lines such as Holland America.


2. For your palate … There will be a more extensive –and sophisticated–food selection as well as a more pleasant dining ambience. Your surroundings might reflect fine art and antiques, and you will likely dine on fine china and crisp white table linens. Your wine list will be more extensive and feature a greater array of quality vintages.


3. In the evenings … Evening activities will be more subdued, better allowing you to share a vacation bonding experience with your loved ones.


4. Your accommodations … The cabins will be plusher–from the linens to the comforter, the flat screens and the furniture.


5. The overall atmosphere … Holland America will offer a more genteel atmosphere in and around the ship in general. You will likely not find water slides and rock climbing walls (although you may well find putting greens and golf simulators). Also, there will be little danger of your ship being overrun with younger people; in fact, your vessel will likely carry about one-third of the passengers typically accommodated by the larger contemporary vessels.



6. The elegance… The more sumptuous premium vessels reflect fine art, antiques and other décor designed to reflect a more sophisticated and cultured ambience for discerning travelers.


7. Discerning guests who share your taste in a premier cruise experience …. This will make for memorable conversations and may be the first step towards future friendships that can last a lifetime. They will also share your love of a little more pampering and indulgence, as well as an appreciation for elegance and quality–precisely the kind of experience offered for which Holland America Line is renowned.
