Lonely Planet introduces first guides to cruise travel 

Cruise ship 1

We all love the thought of jumping on board a luxury, floating palace and sailing away into the sunset on an undetermined island-hopping cruise of relaxing, eating and drinking.

But, who amongst us knows the best way to go about it? Or, even where to actually go, on said cruise?

Well, thanks to the travel legends that are Lonely Planet, their new range of cruise guides for travellers take-out the guess work, making cruising holidays a breeze.

According to Cruise Lines International Association, the Australian cruise market grew by 4.4% in 2017 with more than 1.34 million Australians taking an ocean cruise last year. Australasia also accounted for 5.4 per cent of global cruise passenger numbers in 2017. With numbers like that, they were right to jump on board with the new range of books when they did.

Lonely Planet’s Cruise Ports series has kicked off with guides to AlaskaScandinavia & Northern Europe and the Caribbean, offering top-notch ideas for holidays to those of us a little more sea faring.

The new books feature coloured maps, highlights, reviews and tips on how to save time and money, proving to be an essential resource to help travellers personalise their cruise experience.
