Vantage Cruise Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Vantage cruise ships?

Vantage is marketed to well-traveled passengers ages 50 and up, as well as solo travelers (of the same age), mostly from the United States and Canada. Children over 8 are permitted onboard but not a common sight.

Do I have to dress up on a Vantage cruise?

Not really. There is a casual and relaxed dress code onboard, more so than on ships that cater to Europeans. Comfortable attire is more important than fancy clothes. The only rule for the main dining room in the evening is "no jeans or shorts." Passengers that prefer to wear denim when the sun goes down can opt for casual dining in the informal Captain's Club alternative dining room.

Is everything free on Vantage cruises?

No, but a fair amount is. Fares for a Vantage cruise include most daily excursions, meals onboard, wine, beer and soft drinks with dinner, and Wi-Fi. Gratuities, bar drinks and a few select optional excursions will cost you extra.

What are Vantage’s most popular activities?

Vantage cruisers are interested in getting to know the destinations they visit in-depth. Onboard lectures, demonstrations, special meals, land-based home visits, performances and walking tours are among the most popular activities.
