Value is a key feature of these popular cruise lines, as they offer lots of activities, entertainment and dining options, along with a variety of stateroom types. Some of the cruise lines in this category have ships with unique innovations like water slides, rock-climbing walls, ice-skating rinks, surfing simulators, bowling alleys, and boardwalks.
Their ships are usually anywhere from mid-sized to very large "mega" ships, accommodating thousands of guests. These ships give the feel of being in a large resort.
Mainstream cruise lines are a great option for just about everyone (including multi-generation families, and first-time cruisers), and typically have great youth programs.
During the cruise, entertainment may include Broadway productions, Vegas-style shows, comedians, and music. Some of these lines have select formal nights during the cruise. Specialty restaurants are becoming more and more common (some which have a cover charge for this type enhanced dining experience). Buffets are usually available throughout the day, besides room service, and the main dining room(s).
These cruise lines enhance what mainstream cruise lines typically offer, by providing their guests with higher quality service and cuisine, along with more spacious public spaces and accommodations.
Depending on the cruise line, the ships in this class range in size from small to very large.
These cruise lines appeal to a more discerning traveler, and are typically more expensive than mainstream cruise lines, but more affordable than the luxury lines.
When the finest cruise vacation is your top priority, this is the place to start.
On a luxury cruise line, guests experience highly personalized service, a more intimate (and usually formal) onboard experience, gourmet cuisine, well-appointed accommodations, and fantastic amenities. Many of these brands have smaller ships, allowing them to reach ports of call that the larger ships can't, which results in unique itineraries.
All of these brands feature a version of all-inclusive pricing, and some of them have ships with all-suite accommodations. Although these cruise lines are usually more expensive than the rest, they also provide their guests with so much more, resulting in a fantastic value when considering all that's included.
These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in St. Croix, along with a brief description:
♦ Buck Island Reef National Monument
The 176-acre island is renowned for its underwater trail, perfect for divers of varying skill levels. Go snorkeling in the clear turquoise waters to see a lively tropical life supported by the surrounding coral reef ecosystem. You can also lounge on the soft white sand at Buck Island or go for a hike nearby to get an aerial view of the sea.
♦ Cruzan Rum Distillery
What's a trip to the Caribbean without some vintage rum? Sample some of the various flavors of Cruzan Rum, which dates back to 1760, while learning more about the distilling process on a guided tour. You must be 18 years or older (the legal drinking age in St. Croix) to drink any rum, but the tour is open to guests of all ages.
♦ Point Udall
Positioned at the end of St. Croix, Point Udall signifies the easternmost point of the United States. The angled rock presents a perfect vantage point from which to admire splendid views of the island. In 2000, the Millennium Monument was constructed with a stone sundial to mark the century's first sunrise on U.S. soil. This measuring mark is still in place, making Point Udall a popular destination come sunrise.
