Berlitz 2013 Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships

By December 4, 2012

Follow me on:

The 28th annual print and ebook editions of the Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships for 2013 have been published.
Berlitz 2013 Guide to Cruising
This is one of my favorite cruise ship resources, with detailed descriptions of 284 ocean-going ships. Author Douglas Ward has logged over 5800 days on cruise ships, which makes me look like an amateur with only 800 days!

Earlier this year, I was on the navigation bridge of a cruise ship, and Mr. Ward's guide was prominently displayed on the book shelf with other resource materials. When I inquired about its use, the officer told me that they enjoyed reading about other cruise ships they encountered when at sea. Although this Berlitz guide is useful for professionals like me and cruise ship crew, cruise lovers or those planning their very first cruise will find the information invaluable.

In addition to reviewing 284 ships, this Berlitz Guide contains chapters on the cruising experience, new ships and trends for 2013, different types of ships, 100 popular shore excursions, cruise FAQs, maps, and a comparison of ten of the major large-ship cruise lines. It's a wealth of information!

this I believe is unfair as currently the offer for current onboard guests is not as generous as the future cancelled guests who have not left their homes, lost their vacation time, suffered thru this week of ongoing bad news – etc. We deserve more than they are offering at this time! 100% refund and 100% future free cruise should be offered.
