Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We had purchased the previous edition, so much was a repeat.The value ratings used is a different method from other cruise books - esp. if reviewing for the first time, will be helpful. We compare this info. to other info. to help make an informed decision. Also recommend, Cruises/Ports of call. Frommer's - Cruising & cruise ships. Ward. Good books with the above for info.
Would not book a cruise without reading this book. I've sailed on 27 cruises and the worst was one that I ignored the advice of the guide.
