The Cruise Handbook from Lonely Planet

  • Written by Adam Bennett


Published in January 2019, The Cruise Handbook from Lonely Planet is packed with inspiring ideas and essential advice for the new generation of cruises — and cruisers.

 

Designed for first-timers and seasoned cruisers alike, The Cruise Handbook is filled with destination insight and expert guidance on everything from booking a great deal, family travel, to making the most of your time on shore.

 

“There’s no travel category as polarising as the cruise,” Lonely Planet acknowledges in its Introduction to the book, “but actually, this is one form of travel that can accommodate all comers. Today, destinations are more diverse than ever, onboard food and entertainment have reached new heights and the average cruiser keeps getting younger. Still, the traditional image of a cruise vacation remains outdated.”

 

“This book aims to refresh those stale perceptions,” Lonely Planet says. “We’ll cover everything from full-on leisure to nonstop action to show you how cruises today are as diverse as the destinations they unlock and as varied as the vacationers they attract.”

 

“With industry figures indicating that 27.2 million passengers embark on cruises annually, to dismiss them is to lose out on a range of great experiences.”

 

From island-hopping and river cruising, to Arctic sailing and historical odysseys, Lonely Planet’s new book will help you find the perfect boat trip.
