If you’re considering a cruise holiday in 2019, why not opt for one of the best on the seas?

Five trending cruise lines have caught our attention thanks to their glowing customer ratings, luxury service, first-rate excursions, diverse destinations, and excellent value for money.

Here they are: 5 of the most popular cruise lines for 2019. Which cruise will you choose?

1. Seabourn Cruises

If you’re looking for large-scale luxury with small-ship ambience, Seabourn Cruise Line could be for you.

Seabourn prides itself on offering ‘intimate luxury’. The ships are smaller-than-average, allowing for highly personalised service – and for the ships to reach exclusive ports that are out-of-reach for larger vessels.

Think private club atmosphere: on a Seabourn cruise everyone is treated like a VIP. From hand-selected itineraries to intuitive service, and spacious, all-suite accommodations, you’ll be made to feel welcome from the moment you step onboard. It’s no wonder that Seabourn was recently named Cruise Critic’s Best Luxury Cruise Line!

Seabourn offers cruises to all seven continents; choose from 17 destinations and 464 ports.

2. Avalon Waterways

Specialising in river cruises, Avalon Waterways offers a unique way to explore some of the world’s most popular towns and cities, as well a selection of remote, off-the-beaten-track destinations.

For example, cruise along the Seine River in France, stopping off at Paris and a number of quaint French villages. Or cruise down the Ganges River in India and learn all about the vibrant culture, history, and life of this famous stretch of water. Avalon Waterways river cruises are located in three regions: Europe, Asia, and South America offering unique cruise experiences to suit every traveller. 

Relax in a contemporary-designed vessel featuring elegant interiors, or head up to the Sky Deck which is available on every ship to enjoy stunning views. Avalon Waterways ships allow you to travel the way you want - whether that be in a quiet place, or a lively common area, you're sure to be travelling in style.

3. Oceania Cruises
