Some of our cruises on Premium ships are with select ‘named’ ships (SEL).
These SEL ships all have air-conditioning and ensuites in all cabins. Some ships are newer with steel hulls, some ships are vintage-style wooden hulls and have been renovated on the inside.
The sizes and features vary slightly on each ship. Each ship is allocated to a particular cruise itinerary, usually for the entire season. Only in the case of unforeseen circumstances (force majeure) is a replacement ship offered.
So, we call these ‘named’ Premium ships ‘Premium Select’. Not quite Deluxe ships, but not a generic departure. You will be informed of the ship when you make your initial enquiry on any one of these cruises.
