Luxury cruise lines are in a world of their own - with ships generally much smaller and quieter than the large mainstream cruise ships operated by Celebrity and Princess. It's funny, but because those more mainstream ships are so much bigger they also have a lot more diversity in entertainment and culinary offerings. But luxury cruisers still prefer the less-active "yacht-like" experience aboard smaller ships.
