Set Sail to Paradise — on Your Own Terms
A cruise represents that classic travel getaway — there’s just nothing like slicing through the open sea, watching the sun sink behind an endless horizon.
But … how do you know which cruise is right for you?
At Watercolor Travel, we pride ourselves on matching our clients with cruise experiences that fit their needs, budget, and cruising personality!
Cruise According to Your Unique Style and Needs
Not every cruise is the same … and neither is every cruiser! Explore a few of the different types of cruise experiences we can design for you:
Hear the water lap against the sides of your vessel, spot dolphins playing in the spray … and get closer than you ever thought possible on a small ship cruise! Small ship cruising is a welcome alternative to crowded cruise liners — those giant ships that can only dock in major ports. If you dream of exploring the inlets of Alaska, the clear, shallow waters of the South Pacific, or every sun-drenched nook and cranny of the Caribbean, small ship cruising is your answer. From the luxury tall sail ships of Windstar Cruises to the intimate vessels of Seabourn and Paul Gauguin Cruises, this unique style of cruising is sure to change your perspective.
Want to have a fun-tabulous time on your cruise vacation? We love pairing families and groups with cruise lines that offer more top-notch amenities and included activities, so there’s something for everyone to fall in love with on board. Disney Cruise Line, for example, provides exceptional service and luxury touches for families that want to set sail with Mickey and the gang. Another top choice for families and groups? Royal Caribbean, whose breadth of itineraries and on-board “wow-factors” — like multi-story water slides and surf simulators — guarantee the fun just won’t stop. And for lots of inclusions and choices on board (including up to 29 different dining options!), we love sending our families and groups on a Norwegian cruise.
Gourmet, chef-inspired cuisine. Top shelf drinks and fine wines. Spacious cabins with designer details. Setting sail on a luxury cruise is your opportunity to indulge all your senses. Whether your cruise style skews modern-chic, or you dream of enrobing yourself in old-world opulence, we’ll design a luxury cruise experience that will take your breath away. We pair our clients with premium and luxury cruise lines — like Azamara, Celebrity, and Holland America — that we trust will deliver an exceptional, purely indulgent experience.

River Cruise Your Way to a Whole New Perspective
Crenellated castles, towering church spires, lush countryside, and row after picture-perfect row of vines, hanging heavy with grapes.
Yes, you can see all of that on a cruise — a river cruise, that is!
River cruising is an incredible way to explore the storied regions of Europe, and beyond.
Even better? To navigate under bridges and around bends, river cruise ships have to be nimble. Their smaller size lends you a more intimate cruise experience.
Get Closer to “Incredible!”
Sipping champagne down the Seine? Spotting hippos on the Nile? Whatever your cruise style, there’s a river cruise and destination route for you! Here are a few of our favorite river cruise outfits that always deliver exceptional experiences:
