These cruise lines provide a good product at an affordable price. Pre-discount, per diems range from $150 to $300 per person. The ships are typically larger than the higher end vessels but they also offer a greater variety of activities (rock climbing, pool slides, etc). Typical cruise itineraries range from 3 to 10 days and you will be traveling with a mix of veteran and first time cruisers.

The quality of food and level of service is typically very good but the onboard experience is more typical of a large land-based resort than a traditional cruise. Don't expect a lot of personal service as you may well be traveling with 3000 fellow passengers.
