4.5 stars
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

4 stars


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

4 stars


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

3 stars
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


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. Read More... Visit

2 stars
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.
