The Expedition Cruising Uncovered chapter has doubled in size.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The 2018 edition was the joint winner of the “Guide of the Year” category of the UK’s prestigious 2018 Travel Media Awards at a special awards ceremony in London, October 2018.

The guidebook is the most highly regarded source of comparative information, and up to 400 separate items are taken into account during the evaluation and rating of cruise ships.  Scores are painstakingly calculated and filtered into five at-a-glance results: 1. Hardware (the ship);  2. Accommodation;  3. Cuisine/Dining;  4. Service;  5. All Other Aspects.

 

About Ocean Cruising

It profiles, evaluates and rates the ocean-going cruise ships, from the largest resort ships – to the smallest – from high luxury to budget – from state-of-the art to old and tired. and tells it like it is.
