More About Douglas Ward
With more than 40 years of experience, encompassing over 1,000 cruises and more than 6,000 days at sea, Douglas Ward is a leading authority on cruising. He spends some 200 days a year aboard cruise ships, evaluating their facilities, inspecting each ship like a maritime Sherlock Holmes. Facilities count, of course but just as important are the standards of food, service, staff and hospitality. In his quest for the truth about cruising, no stone is left unturned, from the fluffiness of the towels to the quality of the china, and from the welcome aboard to the disembarkation process.

First Time Cruiser Jun 18, 2008
This is a great book for a first time cruiser like me. I did things a little backwards. Did my homework online, booked my cruise AND THEN bought this book. Everything the author suggested I had already done. Of course I could have save myself a lot of time if I had bought the book FIRST. I definitely would not have had to spend many hours online. Am looking forward to see if his suggestions work!
Simply packed with essential 'know before you go' detail. Feb 4, 2008
Lending libraries catering to travelers in general and the elderly who appreciate cruises in particular won't want to miss Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships 2008, a survey packed with independent reviews of cruise companies based on personal experience, not advertising or hearsay. Chapters do more than offer reviews of nearly three hundred cruise ships: they discuss what to look for in a ship and crew, how to compare the major lines for pros and cons, and where to find the best among different types of cruises. Simply packed with essential 'know before you go' detail.
Most complete cruise guide on the market Jan 7, 2008
I have been consulting the Berlitz cruise guide for many years, and find it a very valuable source of information. Even if I have cruised for more than 20 times, each new edition brings some revised and/or revelant information. Any serious cruise enthusiast should have the Berlitz book for consultation. Highly recommended.
The best reference guide for cruisers and travel agents Dec 25, 2007
I am the editor of a brazilian online magazine, the Cruising On Line (www.cruising.com.br).
I've been buying and using Berlitz Cruising as my main reference guide since I saw it at the first time, 8 years ago, at a travel agency owned by a friend of mine. Congratulations to Mr.Ward and his staff for their great job (hope to be one of them in the future... LOL).
Fun and a Vital Reference Dec 23, 2007
I have bought this Annual Review nearly every year for the last 15+. Just like detailed Automobile Comparisons, you can read it forever for Fun & Profit. Book is expert on History, General Considerations, and Individual-Ship Details Excelent for both Experienced Cruisers and Those who Merely Wonder if They Would Enjoy One. (My family have enjoyed 12 -- from Alaska Eastward to Russia.)
