By now you may be aware that luxury cruise lines are being used to cater for tourists on board the luxury ocean cruise ships that are being touted as being “gourmet” by their sponsors.
While the cruises can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500 per visit, they are also being advertised as having “natural food” to accompany them.
While this is all fine and dandy for tourists who want to go on a cruise with a group of friends, what about the actual people on board?
As it turns out, they do not enjoy the same level of comfort and luxury on these cruise ships.
While luxury cruise ships are designed for those who want a luxurious experience on the water, those who do not want to spend hundreds of dollars on luxury cruise packages are often not as impressed by the food and beverage aboard these ships.
The same is true for the people who are being flown to the luxury cruise ship from their home country for a weekend excursion.
According to Luxury Cruises, a luxury cruise is like a honeymoon, it’s a one-of-a-kind, memorable experience.
The “luxury cruise” is like being on a vacation that lasts only a day, and is reserved for the VIPs, guests, and families of guests who want the most out of their vacation.
In a way, luxury cruise travel is like an escape from the real world.
You may have an exotic vacation in a foreign country and your only purpose is to make it to the hotel, but you can spend an entire day relaxing on the beach, or eating some delicious food.
When it comes to the food onboard the luxury cruises like the Ocean Explorer, Luxury Cruise Explorer, Ocean Princess, and the Ocean Warrior, it is generally quite disappointing.
The Ocean Explorer offers a great buffet at its most expensive, but this is offset by the fact that most of the food on the cruise is “off the hook” with the only real options being to pay $100 or $150 per person for dinner and cocktails, or to go for a two-course meal for $125 per person.
The cruises have also recently been criticized for offering low quality seafood and fresh seafood, and not serving up the same type of food and beverages as other luxury cruise vessels.
