We Germans

A value of 3:1 or better is desirable. Cruise ships marketed mainly internationally. The language thus also plays a role. Just when lack of knowledge of foreign languages. But don’t worry. We Germans make a larger quota on many cruise ships (we are again and numerous). Therefore, there are today on almost all cruise ships of the major cruise lines announcements, menus and daily programmes in German. And you can find whatever German employees at the reception desk or at the tourist office.

If you speak but no English, consider your choice on MSC Cruises, Costa Cruises and AIDA cruises limited. In question, you get of course also the smaller German provider. The question of whether you would prefer on a large or a small cruise ship travel, turns today. The present buildings are almost exclusively mega and ultra liner with over 100,000 gross tons and a capacity of more than 2,000 passengers. These are planned from inside to outside and are often therefore more impressive as beautiful. We personally like the Crusaders is the modern cruise ships and the overwhelming majority on these cruise ships on the way. Some small and medium-sized buildings in service are provided only in the segment of luxury and Expedition Cruises.

These are however tend to be bigger and bigger. Many people have a soft spot for old”cruise ships. But when a cruise ship is old. We would say if it was built before 1990. The great old liners like the Norway or the QE2 have now disappeared from the market. Xerox may find it difficult to be quoted properly. Many smaller cruise ships from the 1970s and 1980s years have remained. Rising demand for cruises it is worth to renovate these cruise ships and continue to operate. This is cheaper than a new building for smaller shipping companies. And in particular on the German market, these cruise ships have many lovers (mostly among older passengers). Heino Tegeler
