These days, cruise ships are not just ships - they're floating cities. Going to the theatre, walking through a lush park and dining at restaurants by Michelin-starred chefs are just a few things you can to do at sea on a lavish cruise ship.
Then there are the fantastic kids clubs with cartoon character meet and greets, the blissful spas and awe-inspiring sea views from glass-bottom walkways and glass capsules offering 360-degree vistas at a height.
Some of the world's largest and most lavish cruise ships are where you'll find the most surprising and out-of-this-world onboard facilities.
