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.
Part One provides a wealth of information about life aboard, covering the likes of cuisine and dining choices, types of accommodation, spa facilities, entertainment, themed cruising - and more – to help travellers enjoy the ultimate cruise experience, whether they’re seeking unabashed luxury, or looking for something on a more modest budget.
Part Two sees almost 300 vessels rated and reviewed in unbiased detail across 700+ pages, from large resort ships to boutique vessels, while the clearly laid-out ratings and scores index make it easy to compare ships.
Featuring full-colour photography throughout, this guide now comes as an innovative print and digital package: purchase of the print book gives access to a free experience-enhancing app and eBook, providing cruise-goers with instant access to ship reviews and practical information. The eBook contain the same comprehensive, quality content as the print book, allowing passengers to travel light.
