    DescriptionPart 1 combines authoritative text and evocative color photography to define the cruising experience, helping readers decide on which type of cruise, which cruise line and which size of ship is best for them. There is lively background information on the burgeoning cruise industry and what makes it so enjoyable and popular with travelers, along with things the cruise lines won't always tell you, and plenty of snippets of fascinating information gleaned from Douglas Ward's many years of cruising. Part 2 consists of comprehensive reviews of every major cruise vessel, from large to small, from unabashed luxury and exclusivity to ships for the budget-minded and youth-oriented. Details include precise specifications on size and facilities, number of cabins, etc, as well as an overview of what to expect on board and useful information for families. Part 3 provides practical information on booking, budgeting, cruise etiquette and safety at sea, plus website contacts for every major cruise line.
