Welcome to CruiseTrail

Our Story

CruiseTrail publishes tips, advice, and articles to inspire, inform and educate. We aim to help you understand the processes behind finding great deals on cruises, hotels, tours, activities, and airfares.

With more than 20 years of experience in the travel industry, we have a solid and unique behind-the-scenes perspective from working with cruise lines, tour operators, consolidators, airlines, IT providers, and hospitality suppliers. And everything else in between that makes the travel industry tick.

Every journey is unique. But we all have the same goal - an unforgettable vacation and unique experiences with the people who matter the most.

During our careers, we have lived and worked in 4 different countries on three continents. We have traveled far and wide on each, both on land and at sea, for business and pleasure. But most often for both.

Cruisetrail does not book your vacation for you. Instead, through our articles, information pages, and essential guides, we hope to inspire, inform, and help you to discover your next big cruise adventure.

What about our reviews and recommendations?

We review and choose suppliers, hotels, shore excursions, tour companies, guides, and cruise companies that we feel can offer an unforgettable experience and value for money.

Over the years, we have helped thousands of customers book their dream vacations. And along the way, we have seen and learned from the challenges travelers can encounter and helped solve their problems.

We never receive payment for our reviews. But sometimes, we receive a commission if you book and purchase a service or product using our links at no additional cost to you. Thank you for helping us at CruiseTrail keep this site updated with expert advice, cruise industry news, and information that is free and accessible to everyone.

If you are a supplier and have a product or service you would like us to test and review, please contact us.

Editorial guidelines

The author’s full name is clearly printed on each post, article, and guide.

We do not cover every conceivable cruise itinerary, cruise line, or cruise port. If we do not have personal experience, we cannot give a first-hand account, and then it does not belong here.

We write about our experiences as travelers and professionals with more than 20 years of experience in the travel industry. However, we use tools like Grammarly to help with spelling, structure, and overall readability.
