Cruise lines are one of the most popular modes of vacation and adventure. The comfort and atmosphere provided makes passengers feel at home while being able to enjoy almost all forms of entertainment. There are many kinds of cruise lines available and the difference between them lies due to the facilities, comfort and quality they provide. Depending on certain parameters, cruise lines can be rated on a scale of 1 to 6, 6 stars being the best. The higher the rating, the higher is the package price and quality.
Six stars is the highest rating. These cruise lines have everything of the finest possible quality. Interiors are lavish and made of high quality wood, leather, fabric. The crockery used is expensive. Food served is exotic and tasteful. The cabins are very large. The staff is quite large and they try to provide personal attention to all passengers. These are meant for very high income groups. The atmosphere is quiet and social with few activities and few passengers. 5 Star cruise lines are also of very good quality. They have more activities as compared to 6 stars. These are more suitable for upper middle class. 4 star cruises are quite affordable with good quality service and food. These are more suitable for family vacations and first timers. 3 star cruises are very popular and find customers coming back again and again. These are full of activity and good for any age group and budget. They exist in large numbers and cover many locations. 2 and 1 star cruises are very pocket friendly but lack the spic and span glamor of new ones. Services are not bad and provide a good experience of cruising at a very reasonable price. The number of passengers is also quite high. The mood is more productive and carnival like.
