The Top 5 Most Luxurious Cruise Ships For 2022

When most of us think of cruising, we imagine stunning big ships with crowd-pleasing amenities and relatively affordable vacations. But today, we’re looking at the more refined ultra-luxury cruising market and the five most luxurious cruise ships in the world. Featuring truly all-inclusive vacations, a certified icebreaker vessel, the world’s largest suite at sea, helicopters, submarines and other ultra-luxury features.

Without further ado, let’s get straight into today’s extraordinary luxury ships.

5. Scenic Eclipse

Let’s start off with the Scenic Eclipse, a vessel that combines the best of cruise ships discovery yachts and expedition ships all in one for you to discover. When marveling at the interiors, you will forget that you’re on an expedition ship to the cold Antarctica and imagine that you’re in a five or six-star hotel on land.

 

The vessel limits its capacity to 228 offering a one-to-one crew to passenger ratio, meaning that as many crew members as passengers on board. The ship also features all veranda suites and an overall all-inclusive experience including butler service, all dining and beverages, spa, shore excursions expeditions and flights to and from the departure port.

 

But what really sets the ship apart are its features. The ship comes equipped with two helicopters allowing to take you inland further than any other expedition cruise ships. Allowing you to experience the most remote parts of the most remote destinations in the world.

 

The ship also features custom-built zodiacs and a seven-seat submarine, getting you to depth of up to a thousand feet or three hundred meters. Allowing for incredible encounters with whales, seals and beauties of nature in the true natural habitat on the water. It can also bring you up close and personal with world famous shipwrecks.

 

The only downside of this ship appears to be its price point. Starting at a $1000 dollars per person per night. This experience appears to be reserved for only the ultra-rich among us.

4. Viking Cruises

You might know Viking Cruise Line from river cruising after all, it’s the biggest river cruise line in the world. But starting in 2015, it has managed to enter the luxury ocean-going cruising market for passengers aged 18 and above and it’s been pretty successful since then.

 

It has launched six identical 50 000 gross sum vessels with a passenger capacity of 930 and it has another nine on order to launch in the next six years. So, what makes Viking so special and what has allowed it to penetrate the luxury market so quickly?

 

Well, first off, it has small vessels with a truly Scandinavian inspired design giving it a unique and sophisticated character and spacious feel. It also keeps Scandinavian traditions and rituals all over the ship. For instance, the spa features a sauna and snow grotto thermal sweets as in Scandinavian tradition alternating between hot and cold therapies leads to better blood circulation. If you end up on a Viking cruise ship, you can even try this out for free as all spa treatments are included in the cruising fair.

 

Viking cruise ships are also instantly recognizable by the infinity pool on the aft of the ship. The ships also have more alfresco and outdoor dining options than most other cruise lines in the ultra-luxury cruising market.

 

Sticking with dining, Vikings true specialty are its destination-centric meals as all foods are locally sourced. Meaning they’re purchased at every port you visit and not bought in bulk at the start of your cruise like most other cruise lines do. If you’re intrigued, be prepared to shell out $500 per person per night. Quite an expensive vacation. But thankfully the next cruise ship on this list offers a much cheaper option.

3. Celebrity Edge Class

Up until now we’ve only presented small vessels with high crew to passenger ratios leading to some extremely high prices. But big ships can be equally luxurious and extravagant, most notably celebrity cruises edge class that includes The Celebrity Edge, The Celebrity Beyond and The Celebrity Apex.

 

Celebrity Cruises is the luxury subsidiary of Royal Caribbean and the edge class is marvelously designed and has an ultra-luxury feel. Celebrity used famous interior designers Kelly Hoppen and Nate Berkus to re-imagine the ship feel. And even though the ship is much larger at over 3000 passengers, it offers an equally yacht-like, ultra-luxury experience.

 

Its size also gives way to more amenities which simply cannot fit on small vessels that includes 19 dining options, three pools, four hot tubs, a stunning large atrium, more high-end entertainment and unique features such as The Magic Carpet, a bar that moves up and down the side of the ship. From $160 per person per night, it is still on the expensive side of things but significantly more affordable than the other two we’ve already looked at.

 

If you want an ultra-luxury, yacht-like feel and don’t mind more passengers, Celebrity Cruises is definitely the right choice for you.

2. Le Commandant Charcot

Next, we have a truly unique and special cruise ship. We’ve already seen expedition ships on this list but none of them are true icebreakers. An icebreaker is a ship that can reach the most remote polar locations in the world such as the North Pole. Far beyond where any cruise ship can currently go.

 

Well, let me introduce you to Le Commandant Charcot, a North Pole ultra-luxury icebreaker. Looking at the interiors, you would think you’re in a six-star hotel, not crashing through ice on the North Pole. The ship also offers an indoor pool, something unheard of on an icebreaker and what’s even more impressive is its outdoor heated lagoon with a fireplace allowing you to take in the polar landscapes in true luxury and style.

 

Additionally, the ship also runs on clean LNG fuels, making it the most environmentally friendly polar ship.

1. Regent Seven Seas

Now, the most luxurious cruise ship ever built Regent Seven Seas – Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor. The vessels look extremely glamorous with shiny diamonds and artworks all over the ship. The ship collection even includes Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso originals just hanging there for you to discover. The ship, of course, also has an infinity pool in plenty of outdoor spaces but what truly sets it apart is the onboard cuisine and dining.

 

The ship has seven dining venues offering you five-star five-course menus from the best chefs at sea every single day. And of course, the world’s most luxurious cruise ship comes fully equipped with luxurious suites.

 

Check out the Region Suite, 4000 square feet, two-bedroom suite with two original Pablo Picasso paintings in your room. It also has a Steinway piano, an indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, a very own spa and sauna, and a $250,000 mattress for you to sleep on.

 

A Region Seven Seas Cruise is also an all-inclusive experience. The fare includes first-class flights, five-star hotel stays before your cruise, a limousine service to the ship, wi-fi, shore excursions, laundry, a personal butler and just anything else you can imagine.

 

If you can afford it, you guarantee to have the time of your life on board. We hope you enjoyed this compilation of the world’s most extravagant and luxurious cruise ships.
