"Twenty years from now, you will be most disappointed by the things you did not do, then by the things you did do.

So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover"

From movies and books to restaurants and travel destinations, in today’s world, we all want to know what someone else thinks or has experienced before we try or buy. The same holds true for cruise vacations. Potential passengers want to know how cruise lines rated among seasoned travelers, how cruise lines rated among professionals in the industry, and how cruise lines rated in the media.

So how can consumers get a hold of cruise line ratings or find out how cruise lines rated in specific categories? Look no further than the web.
There are several informative websites available today offering everything from ratings and reviews to feature articles, on just about every cruise line across the country, if not the world.

Using these websites to find out how cruise lines rated is a great tool to use before you choose a cruise line or cruise ship.
This is an especially important tool for first time cruisers, as ratings can give you an excellent idea of exactly what to expect before you board.

When cruise lines are rated, a wide variety of elements are considered such as the type of ship, size of ship, destinations, accommodations, amenities, activities, entertainment, price, service, excursions, ports of call, passengers, etc. In most cases the rating system is on a scale of 1 to 100, with
100 meaning “Outstanding.” In other cases, stars are used to rate cruise ships. Five star cruise ships offer the utmost in luxury.

Some of the top sites to find out how cruise lines rated include:
www.cruisecritic.com www.cruisereviewsonline.com www.cruisereport.com www.cruisedirectonline.com  www.cruisemates.com
Cruisecritic.com offers more than just ratings and reviews, this site has several search functions to help you find everything from bargains and discounts to theme cruises, and exotic itineraries. The site also includes features, news, planning tools, and a variety of cruise message boards where fellow cruisers can exchange stories and information. www.cruisecritic.com

Cruisemates.com offers two types of ratings: star ratings and value ratings. Star ratings are based on one question — “how good is this ship?” One star is the worst, five stars is the best. Cruisemates.com takes everything from age and accommodations to food, service, and entertainment into account when rating the
worlds cruise ships. Value ratings or “thumbs up” ratings are all about the “Bang for your Buck.” Five thumbs up means the ship is an excellent value while one thumb up means you won’t find much of anything that resembles a value here.
