Widely regarded as the world’s top authority on cruising and cruise ships, Douglas Ward has completed over 6,200 days on ships and riverships on almost 1100 cruises, 158 transatlantic crossings, and countless Panama Canal transits, shipyard visits, ship-naming ceremonies and maiden voyages. Often described as a maritime Sherlock Holmes, Ward leaves no stone unturned in his 200 sea days each year, examining everything from the fluffiness of the towels to the quality of the china and silverware, and from the welcome aboard to the disembarkation process.
Offering comfort, convenience, dazzling destinations, excellent entertainment options, fine food, and even adventure (for those so inclined!), it’s no wonder that cruising is an increasingly popular holiday choice, and this seminal book - now in its thirty-fourth year of continuous printing - is the only guide cruise-goers need. It’s the world’s most authoritative and longest-running guide to cruising and cruise ships, written by the world’s foremost independent authority in this field.
With over 320 riverships rated and reviewed in unbiased detail by the world’s foremost independent authority on cruising and cruise ships, this updated third edition of Berlitz’s bestselling guide to river cruising is the only guide travellers need to decide which cruise to choose, and how to make the most of their time aboard.
