Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cruises are my favorite kind of vacation. Why? All you have to do is get to the port. After that, you get on the ship, and they take you everywhere else. The biggest thing you have to decide is what you are going to eat. So, I thought that this book would be perfect for me. I was looking forward to getting insider tips to help me out. The author is extremely knowledgeable about all things cruise related. He goes over every cruise line, so that you can decide which one to cruise on. He also talks about the different destinations in a broad sense. He even covers the dress code required on most ships. There is a great table of contents, so that if you only want information on a certain subject, you can jump right to it. All in all, this would be a great book for a first time cruiser. It would be helpful in all the steps of the process from planning your vacation to what to pack to life on board. However, if you've been on even one cruise before, you won't really learn anything that you don't already know. Therefore, I highly recommend this to those that have never cruised before but are considering it. I would not recommend this to anyone who has already partaken of the cruise experience. For those reasons, I give the book 3 stars.
