Book Description

Oct. 8 2010 Stern's Guide to the Cruise Vacation

Luxury travel expert Steven B. Stern guides readers to the vacation of their dreams. Whether you want to drift down the Amazon River, ride horses along jungle trails, or visit underground rivers to search for archeological treasures, Stern can advise on the when, where, and how long. The most popular attractions and activities, as well as the most rewarding ones, are listed for each port of call.

More than two hundred photographs of vessels, decks, and interiors are provided for anyone wanting the specifics of each ship. The Star Awards system rates each ship in eleven specific categories and dining menus and price ranges are included for discerning travelers. For those who prefer trips that complement their lifestyles, tips for beach-goers, tennis buffs, joggers, parents, and singles make planning a voyage an adventure in itself.

Product Description


"One of the most noticeable (and useful) things about the Stern guide is that it publishes at least one menu and one daily program for each major cruise line in order to give a taste of the experience and what goes on aboard ship."

"It is well worth adding to your cruise book collection. Steve has sailed on more than 750 ships, so you can be sure he knows what he's talking about."
-World of Cruising

"People who've never cruised before-or those who have, but find themselves faced with a confusing onslaught of new ships-need to know a great deal, and this book goes a long way in providing it."
-Chicago Tribune

1.0 out of 5 stars Ponderous & Boring Jan. 30 2013
By love to read - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book for one cruise. Stern has a lot of knowledge about the tonnage of ships! This is the same guide he puts out year after year with some editorial updates. In other words he inputs new ships that come out that year. The star awards are questionable - is it due to getting cruises gratis? Nowadays, you can get far more info on the internet and better itinerary guidance from the ship's websites or wikitravel. It appears to be low quality production. Perhaps you get what you pay for in self publication. After 41 years it should be crafted more smoothly considering all the techniques available for the writer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Feb. 5 2011
By E. J. Tigner - Published on Amazon.com
I was disappointed with this book. All the photographs are old, black and white, supplied by the cruiselines themselves, and with the same models showing up over and over again. I couldn't find space ratio information on any ship anywhere in the book. It is printed in about an 8-point (or smaller!) font, which makes it very difficult to read. The sample daily schedules are often from port days, which makes comparing sea day activities difficult. If I had been looking at cruise guides in a store, or if there had been a "look inside" feature on Amazon, I would not have selected this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for anyone planning a cruise. June 14 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Stern's Guide to the Cruise Vacation is all you need to decide what ship would fit your style of cruising. With so many new ships on the horizon, Steve Stern's has traveled on most of them, actually 750 and counting. He gives insights to everything from service, amenities, menus and ports of call. Each new edition is laid out in an easy to read format.
We have some of the other guides on our bookshelf, but Steve's Guide is our favorite.
