This category of cruise vacation represents the equivalent of floating "Resorts at Sea." The ships range in size from mid-sized (500 to 1500 guests) to large, and includes the newer "mega" cruise ships that can accommodate over 3000 guests. Choice is the operative word when describing resort or contemporary style cruising. These value-packed mainstream vacations are feature and activity rich, often exceeding the amenities found on a comparable land-based vacation. The atmosphere is generally casual with opportunities to dress more "formally" on select evenings. Extensive onboard diversions include pools, health clubs and spas and a selection of dining options including beautiful dining rooms, casual lido deck restaurants, pizzerias and a variety of specialty themed restaurants. Most also feature organized age specific "Children's Programs" with trained youth counsellors. In the evening you can enjoy "Broadway" or "Vegas" style productions, a comedy act, the casino, or you can go dancing or just relax in one of the may onboard lounges. Cruise rates for a resort style cruise typically range from $150 to $350 per person, per day, and vary by season, cruise line, and itinerary.
