Seabourn Spirit

You won't find bargain-basement prices on a Spirit sailing, but what you will find is well worth the price tag: all-suite accommodations, a fold-out marina for water sports ranging from sailing to water skiing, and impeccable service on an overgrown yacht where the crew-to-passenger ratio is practically 1-to-1.

Celebrity Silhouette

You need look no further than the Bulgari boutique on the main promenade for proof of Celebrity's luxury cred, but don't overlook the ship's other upscale touches — gourmet restaurants, personal enrichment classes and a world-class spa, all of which come at surprisingly low fares. Book Now.

MarineMax Vacations

m/s Noordam
