experience cruising the world. Our mission is plain and simple.

We literarily have cruised "round the world", sailing thousands

sampling itineraries and critiquing shore excursions. Chances
are " we've been there and done that" . We know the lay of
the land ( & sea ) sort of speak. And now through Ocean Cruise

Our advice offers the best possible cruise options based on your
lifestyle, interests, budget, travel experience, etc....plus
we'll point out where to get group rates ( without joining a
group! ), free upgrades, shipboard credits and other amenities
