An industry that has recently given in to the highly Instagram-filtered world of the millennial generation, cruise lines have upped their game by shaping (and sharing) a modern portrait of the paradisiacal, seemingly too-good-to-be-true shores they land on, appealing to a more youthful customer. Here are 4 cruise lines that are redefining the sail-setting tradition one breathtaking excursion at a time.


Azamara Cruises

A lot of people equate cruising with escaping to a beach somewhere across the world. Azamara Cruises bucks that cliché, instead offering a longer, more country-intensive itinerary that’s sure to be an authentic cultural experience you’ll never forget. With the line’s unique voyages like the super intriguing 15-Night Antarctica Pursuit Voyage, the boundaries are endless aboard an Azamara ship.


Celebrity Cruises

Voted Best New Ship of 2018 by the editors of Cruise Critic, Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Edge was specifically designed to “shatter expectations.” Boasting a collection of 29 world-class dining experiences and a have-to-see-it-to-believe-it cantilevered Magic Carpet deck, this ship takes luxury to an uber enviable, fanciful extreme. Whether you’re yearning to land on the beaches of the Caribbean or to explore the shore of Monaco, the Edge defies all travel expectations.


Seabourn

Hailed as a “game-changer for the luxury segment,” the Seabourn Quest embraces the traditional sentiments of cruising but pushes the limits of just how magnificent a long sojourn can be. With 229 suites on board, this intimate vessel offers award-winning dining and a wide array of world-class entertainment, making all-aboard living leisure at its finest. Boasting trips ranging from 15-day adventures to 60-day sabbaticals, Seabourn is ready to manifest your inner compass’s every desire.


Windstar Cruises

Have you always wanted to go on a cruise but are turned off by the idea of sharing the ship with a large mass of people? Windstar Cruises’ personalized approach to cruising is the perfect remedy. The company’s collection of liners admits fewer than 350 guests per excursion, making every adventure an intimate affair prime for making once-in-a-lifetime memories.
