The Cruise Travelers Handbook

The Cruise Travelers HandbookThere was a book published recently titled ‘The Cruise Travelers Handbook’ and saying as we are close to Xmas I thought I would tell you a little more about it as it would make the ideal gift for the cruise-a-holic in your life.

It’s not the usual cruise related book that’s full of the same old thing we read time and time again, it’s something fresh, new and it’s written by someone who is a cruise addict, just like the rest of us!


The Cruise Traveler’s Handbook provides inspiration, advice and tips on how to explore the world from the water, including ocean, river and canal cruising. Using this handbook will help you to ensure you find and have unforgettable cruise vacations that are best suited to you. It is written by Gary Bembridge of and covers why and when you should cruise, planning your cruise, making the most of your time on board and how to be a responsible and safe cruiser.

The Cruise Traveler’s Handbook explores:

  • The reality behind cruising myths.
  • When cruising is better than land based vacations.
  • Which type of cruising is suited to different types of travelers.
  • The main destinations you can cruise to, and who they are best for.
  • How to choose the right type of cruise, cruise line and cabin.
  • How to budget and ensure you get the best fare.
  • How to get the most out of your time on-board.

I was fortunate enough to not only receive a copy of the book several weeks ago, but to also provide a short story for it too! You can find that on page 41 😉

The Cruise Travelers Handbook Back Cover

I enjoyed the book as a whole, but I really liked the fact there were short stories from other cruise bloggers, journalists and experts throughout including Captain Greybeard, Mike Faust and Sherry Laskin. It gave it a nice overall view. You follow Gary’s journeys, tips and advice then occasionally you hear from someone else and get a glimpse into what cruising means to them and how it all began. As I said at the beginning, it’s something FRESH!

The book is available from Amazon UK and Amazon USA in paperback and you can also download it for your Kindle device.

Happy reading! You won’t be disappointed!
