“Many luxury lines have perfected the world cruise concept. You’re not on board for the flashy water slides and Broadway-style shows — you’re likely more focused on what’s happening in port,” explains Colleen McDaniel, editor-in-chief of Cruise Critic, a TripAdvisor-owned publication specializing in the cruise industry.
