The popularity of cruising has soared in recent years and isn't showing signs of slowing down anytime soon, according to AAA Travel, Sonoran Living's go-to travel source. As a result, the cruise industry is seeking to lure travelers to its ships by catering to consumers.

What Cruising Consumers Want
- Luxury and lifestyle. High-end spas and lifestyle-type activities are in high demand on ships today, but consumers don't want anything too stuffy - having an element of casualness is important to them, too.

- Intimate experience. While ocean liners are still popular, more intimate cruise experiences are gaining in popularity as well.

- Fine dining. The fact that meals are included on a cruise are a given. As such, consumers want more than just food - they want meals with thoughtful ingredients that complement their itinerary.

Cruise Line That Meets Travelers Wants
Oceania Cruises is a popular, upper-premium cruise line among AAA travelers. Oceania offers gracious and friendly service and extraordinary value.

The cruise line partners with the award-winning Canyon Ranch to offer one of the best spas and wellness programs at sea. They have a fleet of mid-size ships that cater to 680 to 1,250 pampered guests. Voyages range from the Greek Isles and Eastern Mediterranean to the Caribbean and the Panama Canal.

Dining Aboard Oceania
Patterned after Europe's exquisite 5-star restaurants, guests are served course after course of European-inspired Continental cuisine or the healthy and savory fare from the world-renowned Canyon Ranch. Menus change daily, with a selection of sumptuous dishes for breakfast and lunch, punctuated by at least six appetizers and nine entrées at dinner.
