Vacation cruises have seen rapid growth in recent years. People enjoy waking up to a new port-of-call adventure every day, without having to unpack and move all their belongings. New ships offer roomy accommodations, a feast of food options, and shipboard activities that boggle the mind. Indeed, many vacation cruise ships now are full-fledged vacation destinations all by themselves.

Book Your Next Cruise With Cruise Direct Today! To be sure, the increased popularity of vacation cruises is also due in part to better affordability. Lower costs for cruises, and the all-inclusive nature of many cruise programs, prove an attractive option for many vacationers.

The internet is, of course, part of the reason for that affordability. Booking a cruise online can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars over traditional booking methods. When reviewing cruise booking sites, the following traits should factor prominently in your consideration:

  • Selection.  What good is a cruise booking site if it only gives you a few options? You want to see and compare the greatest number of destinations and cruise lines possible.
  • Cost.  One big reason for booking a cruise online is to save money. You want a site that reliably gives the best deals.
  • Information.  You may want to research the shipboard amenities, port of call excursions, or read other customer's reviews before booking a cruise. The best cruise vacation sites give you this information and more.

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best cruise vacation sites available today. We hope these reviews help you book your next cruise quickly and easily!

Vacation Outlet

VACATION OUTLET

This site is among the easiest we've found to shop for and buy a cruise. Although you can research and purchase other types of vacations from this site, it's clear that cruises are where Vacation Outlet focuses most of its energy. A simple to use format, wealth of information, and low prices give this site a very high score. Read More... Visit

Travelocity

TRAVELOCITY

No Gnomes here - Travelocity does an admirable job of allowing customers to be able to research, find and book a cruise. With a wealth of travel experience to draw on, Travelocity makes the process simple and affordable. Read More... Visit

Priceline

PRICELINE

Priceline made its mark as the first "name your own price" airline fare site, where customers could submit a price for an airfare and see if the airlines accepted it. Over the years they have expanded their repertoire of offerings to include vacation packages and cruises. And they've done it very well. Read More... Visit

E Cruises

E CRUISES

eCruises offers adequate information in an average site. Although not truly difficult to navigate, eCruises suffers from a lack of excitement and sometimes downright bad navigational setup. But it does supply some good information and can be a good site to do some research.

Easy Click Travel

EASY CLICK TRAVEL

Cruises are not Easy Click Travel's bread and butter, and it shows. This Florida-based company does everything from cars to vacations, from hotels to hotel transfers. While encompassing a lot of travel options, this busy site is not what we'd call pretty or intuitive; and it's depth of cruise information pales in comparison to our higher-rated selections.

Last Minute Travel

LAST MINUTE TRAVEL

This is a sister site to Easy Click Travel. Both are based in Altamonte Springs, FL. The sites look and navigate very much the same except for one difference; while Easy Click Travel focuses on hotels and vacations, Last Minute leads with airline booking. Unfortunately, we consistently found lower cruise fares - and even airfares - on other sites.
