This is because we have chosen to specialise in a particular range of holidays at sea. We strongly believe you cannot be all things to all people, so like any high street store, we specialise in a specific area.
Within our niche, we identify six companies as our Best of the Best. How do you choose between them? Here is our thumbnail sketch for each...
Hapag Lloyd's Europa 2 is identified by the Berlitz Guide to Cruising as the best in the world, with a rarely awarded Five Stars Plus rating. We love the ship for its spacious Nordic public areas, the sweeping sea views from everywhere - even the lifts - the amazing choice of restaurants, and the comfortable accommodation.
With Silversea, you can choose from the classic fleet of comfortable small ships, ranging in size from 290 to 550 guests, or the Silversea Expeditions fleet, taking you way beyond the ordinary on off-the-beaten-track adventures to explore the bucket list you never knew you had. Either way the all-inclusive pricing and high levels of hospitality ensure a special holiday. The latest Silversea ship, Silver Muse, joins the fleet in 2017.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises
The most inclusive of All-Inclusives, on Regent Seven Seas Cruises even the entry level suite has its own verandah (except on the little Seven Seas Navigator), and with flights, shore excursions, all drinks, meals and gratuities included in the fare, not to mention WiFi and so much more in certain grades, the Regent offering is compelling. Add to that a wide choice of dining and relaxed style, and you certainly have a winner. The newest addition to the fleet, the spectacular Seven Seas Explorer, launched in 2016.
Seabourn's trio of sisters, each carrying 450 guests, offer a stylish and relaxed experience with lots of al fresco options, plenty of deck space, and a close connection with the sea. The new, slightly larger Seabourn Encore has just joined the fleet, with her sister ship Ovation to follow in 2018. The expanded fleet offers an extensive range of worldwide itineraries, with both shorter sailings and opportunities to combine a series of cruises to create long voyages. Inclusive fares, open dining and a laid back elegance make Seabourn an appealing choice.
Crystal's sisters Symphony and Serenity offer an amazing combination of space, options and outstanding service, with a more comprehensive programme on board, and carefully planned itineraries including lots of overnights in port and relaxing days at sea. Crystal are currently undergoing huge growth, expanding into yacht, river and expedition cruising, not to mention a trio of new 'Exclusive Class' ocean vessels, with the first due to arrive in 2022.
SeaDream Yacht Club
The intimate SeaDream yachts, accommodating just over 100 guests each, are a firm Mundy favourite, with a unique outdoorsy laid-back style which is hard to replicate elsewhere. Whether playing with the water toys from the marina at the back of the ship, taking a bicycle ashore to explore a tiny island, snorkelling off the beach, dining at a private table just for you, out on deck, or sleeping under the stars, you will enjoy every minute of your SeaDream yacht cruise.
