Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

We booked the December 26, 2019 Hurtigruten MS Midnatsol Antarctica Cruise Expedition trip with SmarTours through Travelstride over a year prior to embarkation.
This was the trip of a lifetime. Every aspect of this trip exceeded our high expectations. The tour director was excellent and added the special touch to make this trip memorable. The ship's entire staff made us feel special and welcome. The service, expeditions, lectures, information sessions, and food great!! The Buenos Aires hotel staff, service and food was top notch. I highly recommend this trip!!

We took our first Holland America cruise this summer to Alaska. We left from British Columbia on a 7 days cruise and flew back from Anchorage after the 3 day land tour. We have been on several others cruises and we liked the fact the ship was much smaller on this trip. The food was good. I have to say the hours of operation for the food wasn't as long as other cruises but still adequate. The only complaint I would have about the buffet was the ice machine was very difficult to operate. I was surprised that staff served most of the buffet. . i am guessing for health sanitation concerns. The staff was great. The ship was clean. The crew was constantly cleaning any problems. Our room was adequate for an inside room. The room stewards were great and were very accommodating if we needed anything. The crew explained things as we traveled along the inside passage and Glacier Bay. The entertainment during the day wasn't quite as good as a larger ship but we also traveled to Alaska and had several ports to see. The weather was fabulous while we were in Alaska.

This is no where near the claimed 5 Star luxury cruise line. We have just been to an inner passage Alaskan tour. We had booked hoping to be a once in a lifetime experience. It was a big let down. Most of our time was spent trying to sort our food a big surprise as one had heard that you get a lot of tempting food on a cruise. The line could not cater for 5 vegetarian who do not eat eggs and 1 vegan. We did complained from day 1 and at though the staff tried there best but there were various problem mostly due to the kitchen staff either not bothered or overworked. This is made worse by the senior staff on the ship having no power to address the situation they just said to us that they have taken noted our comments and will forward to their head office. So surprised that a very simple diet of vegetarian and vegan requirement could be satisfied. There was virtually no desert except ice cream. The serving staff also not sure of the ingredients.

Highlights of Iceland was an awe inspiring trip of a lifetime with spectacular scenery, great guide and a small group of similarly interested travellers. Volcanoes, glaciers, geothermal sites, waterfalls, whales, interesting cities and seeing the northern lights made for a wonderful experience.

I am appalled and dismayed

I am appalled and dismayed with my recent attempt to communicate with HAL Guest Relations department. I tried to book a 17 days cruise thru an agency. The agent notified me that he couldn't put under my name, though - it was rejected by the system every time my name was input, so, he put a hold on that cruise under my wife's name and advised me to call HAL Guest Relations (GR) next day. I didn't wait till next morning and started calling Mariner Society immediately, trying to figure out what could be wrong. The Mariner Society couldn't find any discrepancies, so, I called GR - they couldn't clarify the situation either. Next morning, the agent told us that she was advised to talk to the GR manager, Brett Swafford, who supposedly would be able to solve the mystery. She provided us with Brett's phone number and told us to call him as well. Two days later, after leaving 6 messages on his phone, at least two messages left on the supervisor's phone, Celeste, numerous calls and conversations with other members of GR we still neither heard from anybody or given an explanation of what is going on and why we can't book that cruise! I am most annoyed that I wasted that much time while on vacation waiting for a returned phone call!
I trust this is not the way HAL wishes to conduct business with valued customers—we have been with HAL since 2005 and have never encountered such treatment before. We have around 700 cruise days with HAL and 1000 credit days. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss matters further and to learn of how you propose to prevent a similar situation from recurring. I look forward to hearing from you, HAL!
All I want is a closure to this case - there are plenty of other cruise lines to choose from.
I also, would like to have a written letter explaining why and how my name got suddenly flagged!?
HAL executives sometimes need to be reminded that their business rises and falls with customer satisfaction!!!
