A cruise ship is a large passenger ship used for oceans voyages in which the voyage itself, the ship's amenities, and usually the different destinations (ports of call) along the way each form part of the passengers' experience. Transportation from one port or another is usually not the main purpose of the voyage. The act of "cruising," particularly on voyages that return passengers to their originating port are sometimes known as "closed-loop" cruises.
