New Berlitz Guide

Choosing a cruise can be difficult. With numerous cruise lines, thousands of itineraries and hundreds of ships offering variations of cabin choice, entertainment, food, spas, sun decks and bars, it is easy to throw up your hands and leave it all to whim.

The Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ship, now in its 27th year, has resolved this problem for many. Compiled by Douglas Ward, a highly regarded cruise expert, this completely independent, thoroughly investigated and comprehensive guide is often referred to as the ‘bible of cruising’.

Accepting no sponsorship money and with its own internationally recognised rating system, its frank (at times brutally honest) and opinionated reviews of destinations, cruise lines and their ships enables would-be cruisers to choose their cruise confident and illusion-free.

The 2012 edition is also available as the Berlitz Cruise Ships 2012 App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
