Hi there, I appreciate your website. Thank you for sharing Your information.

Made plenty of new friends

Great site to find out just about anything you need to know about a ship, sailing date, activities onboard and excursions from people who have cruised before. I absolutely find it invaluable when I'm going to an unknown port, again the good and bad. Best of all, they have a "Meet and Mingle" section for sailings 7+ days! Simply sign up and you will get the information for the party. Need to bring a small gift from where you live (think it's $10 or so) and they get ready to meet the folks you've been talking to. We did this twice and had a wonderful time meeting people from all over the world. You can find firsthand information (good and bad) from those who have sailed on your ship, give inside tips and some even post pics of your room. I've never had a question that wasn't answered either in the forum section or FAQ's. So if you're planning a cruise, it's a must do. Ease of Use Once you sign up, the site is easy to navigate. Be sure to your settings are on your terms, or you can get a lot of emails! It's easy to post a picture of yourself and pics/videos of your trips. Features To me the "Meet and Mingle" is the best! How many times do we sail with loved ones or even alone and wish we could meet people. This is an awesome party and a great way to connect the first night and then meet up during your sailing. Customer Service Haven't had to use it but I'm sure there would be a quick turn around time if you encountered a problem. Everyone is SO helpful.

Great for Planning Your Cruise

5

I have never been on a cruise but hope to do so one day. I have looked into them however, and this is one of the travel sites I used to do so.The CruiseCritic website gives you tips and advice on picking your cruise and what to do when you get there. CruiseCritic gives you lists of all the cruises there are and the pros and cons of each. They offer advice on various aspects of cruising and you can read other members reviews and advice on cruises. You can get information on cruises from the members that have been on a specific cruise such as the food, entertainment and things to visit and do in various ports. You can also find all sorts of information about various ports as well. If you are going on a cruise this is a good site to check into as it really helps. Although I have not actually booked a cruise yet, I hope to do so in the future and will definitely use this site again. The website is easy to navigate as well.

The Best Advice!

I am so thankful I stumbled upon Cruisecritic.com. This is the "Ultimate Online Cruise Resource ." This website has information on every aspect of the cruising world. The best aspect of the site would be the member review section. When we were first time cruisers we relied heavily on this section. Ease of Use This website is very user friendly. The search options are incredible to give you exactly the information you need without wasting your time flipping through many pages. Features This website even offers information on all topics, even down to dress codes for certain cruise lines and events. There are several options to compare prices of the available cruises. There is even a filter for special deals. This will give those with flexibility more options and prices to consider. Customer Service The customer service section is just simply a contact us section. I have not had any bad experiences with this company!

Outstanding website to plan your next cruise

The Bottom Line. I absolutely LOVE Cruisecritic.com! If you are planning a vacation that involves a cruise, I highly recommend checking out Cruisecritic.com, it truly is a one-stop shop for cruises and has invaluable features that will make planning your next trip so much easier. Ease of Use Cruisecritic.com is possibly one of the most user friendly company travel website I have ever used. From getting ideas for destination, finding a cruise choosing your cruise company, everything is very clearly labeled and laid out, without any annoying popups or intrusive ads. Once you have found a cruise you are interested in your next step will be to click on the "Check Prices" button and a popup window will appear, where you can then compare many different websites for the best deal on your selected cruise. Even though I do wish you could book directly from Cruisecritic.com, this is a very well done website that will keep you stress free while planning your next vacation. Features There are many awesome and very helpful features that will take the stress out of trying to figure out which company is the best the most affordable, with best destinations etc. If you have no idea where you want to go on a cruise you can simply just choose "any destination, any month, any cruise line" from the "find a cruise" search engine, and it will show you loads of results from where you can get ideas and narrow down based on your preferences. I also LOVE that next to each cruise, you can see the popularity of that cruise and read tons of reviews from unbiased travelers. Each result clearly states the departure dates available, the departure port, the itinerary, even the cruiseship deck plan.

Cruisecritic.com is wonderful

5

There's a lot of sites for hotel reviews and other things, but I've never seen a really good cruise review website until I came across cruisecritic.com. This site is absolutely amazing. I used it about six months ago to find the perfect family cruise since I have two five year olds. I wanted to make sure what we were using was good for not only the kids, but the entire family. I was able to look at a large amount of cruise lines, destinations, attractions, ratings and reviews and so much more. They offer such great discounts and really give you accurate pricing and reviews. We had a great time and I am very happy I used this cruise website to figure out what to do and where to go. I would definitely recommend checking this site out especially if you're a frequent cruise goer. If you're concerned about the difficultly of using the site, don't worry at all. It's so easy to navigate and refine your search to exactly what you're looking for. I'm not exactly website savvy and I was able to find everything extremely easy. Excellent site.

Learn About Your Cruise, Before you Cruise

5

This is the best website to go to before you plan your cruise. This site can help you find great deals on cruises, different features that each cruise will offer, and even reviews about each cruise. There is also a forum on this site. I have read through the forums, but never personally used the forum. It's an awesome way to get information before about the cruise of your choice, the shopping on the cruise, dining and entertainment during the cruise, and even hotel selection. There is so much information, and all located on this one website. Ease of Use It's very easy to use. There are a number of different drop down links that can make searching this site easier. There are links to see other people's reviews on the cruises they have taken. Also, it has a link to find deals on cruises. There is a community link to find the forum, different reviews, live chat and a host of other options. It contains so much information, you're sure to find a great cruise based on your own preferences. Features There is a ton of different links and features on this website, as I have already mentioned. It deserves a ten on it's features, as it's packed with information.

Great website to compare cruise deals

4

This website has an extensive amount of information about cruise deals, destinations, news, locating a cruise, and reviews on them. Each tab has a drop down list of additional categories to look up information, which is very helpful to me. I love that the website contains reviews for each type of cruise. This was great to decide which cruise line I should choose for my next cruise. I also think its nice to that the web site has a community section too. I have asked other people about different cruises, and it was helpful that this section was on the web site. I also like that there is information about each specific cruise line. I think that the website could do a better job of marketing itself to the general public. I heard about this website from a friend, otherwise, I would not know that the web site existed. The web site needs to be promoted more! That is the only reason why I did not give this a perfect ten. Otherwise, the website is fantastic for a first cruise or a return one. Customer Service I never had to use customer service.

Great for planning a cruise!

It could be laid out a little better but it's a good site if you're planning a cruise and need to get reviews or the best deal on a cruise. I am planning a cruise for this coming winter break and I used this website to find reviews on the cruise ships that I had it narrowed down to. This website definitely helped me eliminate one of the cruise ships that I was thinking about, and I'm glad it did! I now have a ship picked out that I'm super excited about and I have no qualms! Ease of Use The website looks a little clustered when you first go to it, but once you figure it out it's extremely easy to use. There are all the features that you need there. Features There are all the features you need for reviewing a cruise ship and narrowing down your options! They organize the ships through reviews and prices, which is really helpful if you're looking to save some money. Customer Service I had a few questions for the customer service reps about pricing and they were really helpful and nice to me when I called, so I have nothing negative to say about them!

Check Cruise Critic before you sail

This is the best overall website I found for information about cruise ship travel. I really like the reviews of the ships and the individual rooms in some cases. You can find out the differences between the various cruise lines, and see reviews from people who have sailed recently with them. You can get info on shore excursions too and compare different cruises to find one that is right for you. They cover info on food and dining too, the kids programs, spas and other activities. You can book a cruise through their web site too. Ease of Use Very easy to use, just type in the ship or cruise line you want to get info on. Features You can view floor plans for different ships and rooms. People can also review their cruise by the date they sailed so you can get a feel for what the cvruise is really like. Also what you can avoid and things that are a must do or must see. I like being able to compare different cruise lines too. Customer Service They respond quickly to questions.
