Review quote

"For 28 years, Berlitz's Complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships, with in-depth reviews of 284 ships by Douglas Ward, has been a bible to perennial cruisers." "New York Times, November 2012" "An invaluable resource to anyone planning a cruise." "Huffington Post, April 2013" "It would be hard to imagine any writer who has experienced as much at sea or is more exacting." "Everett Potter's Travel Report, January 2013" "One of the most esteemed names in cruise writing, Ward has spent more than 30 years taking scrupulous notes and making honest appraisals of main dining room cuisine, cruise ship cabins and at-sea service." "Cruise Critic, January 2013" "Anyone who loves to cruise will love this book. The Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships 2013 is one of the best 'general' cruise guides you can buy.... The guide book has exceptional information on ships of all sizes and prices." "About.com, December 2012" "The 284 hard-hitting reviews in this eagerly awaited Guide expose the best and worst scoring cruise ships using an internationally accepted rating system devised by the author, the most respected (and feared) critic in the business. The only source of independent star-ratings for virtually all ocean-going cruise ships worldwide...." "Cruise News, September 2012"show more

About Douglas Ward

With more than 40 years of experience, encompassing over 1,000 cruises and more than 6,000 days at sea, Douglas Ward is a leading authority on cruising. He spends some 200 days a year aboard cruise ships, evaluating their facilities, inspecting each ship like a maritime Sherlock Holmes. Facilities count, of course but just as important are the standards of food, service, staff and hospitality. In his quest for the truth about cruising, no stone is left unturned, from the fluffiness of the towels to the quality of the china, and from the welcome aboard to the disembarkation process.show more
