Introduction

If you are passionate about cruising there is one book you simply must have. It is called the Brlitz Guide to Cruising and published every year. It is the reference book used by all of the best cruise travel agents as their bible – the holy grail of cruising. It is something I have personally used as a reference guide for many years.

Packed with facts and figures about the cruise lines and their ships, it is the ideal reference guide to all things cruise. The book in question is the Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships 2017 (Berlitz Cruise Guide).
