9780764569418: Cruise Vacations For Dummies 2005 (Dummies Travel)

Whether you’re a veteran cruiser or have never set foot on an ocean-going vessel, this is the book for you. Up-to-date and comprehensive, it will guide you through everything from choosing a cruise to clearing Customs on your return. Cruise Vacations For Dummies 2005 includes information on:

  • Getting the best deal (few people pay full boat; consider the brochure price like a “sticker” price)
  • Choosing the best cruise for your interests, schedule, and budget
  • Ways to make your cruise more romantic
  • Planning a family-friendly cruise
  • What to expect onboard—from cabin size to spas, sports, entertainment, and gambling
  • Popular cruise destinations, including the Carribbean, Alaska, the Mediterranean, and more
  • The major cruise lines and their vessels
  • Mainstream ships, luxury ships, and alternative and sailing ships

Cruise Vacations for Dummies 2005 was written by Jerry Brown and Fran Wenograd Golden; cumulatively, they’ve been on more than 100 cruises. Fran is a columnist for concierge.com and the Boston Herald travel section, and co-author of Frommer’s European Cruises and Ports of Call and Frommer’s Alaska Cruises and Ports of Call.

With their vast cruise experience, the authors give you tips and tidbits on:

  • Travel insurance, packing tips, passport requirements, tipping, and more
  • Top attractions and best shore excursions at major ports of call
  • Wining and dining (a main attraction in itself)
  • Activities onboard

The “Quick Concierge” appendix and comprehensive index help you find what you want to know fast.
