     Our friend Steven is the author of Stern's Guide to the Cruise Vacation

    Updated annually, this valuable 830-page guide assists you in intelligently selecting the ship best suited to your taste. Included is descriptive information for all major cruise ships, including each vessel’s history, vital statistics, appearance, accommodations, itineraries, price range and sport, dining and medical facilities. Author and cruise critic, Steven B. Stern evaluates every detail by bestowing overall Star Awards as well as ratings in eleven specific categories. Almost three hundred photographs of ships, decks, and interiors are included, along with actual shipboard menus and daily activity programs for each featured cruise line.

     The author advises you on how to prepare for your cruise and explains what to expect once you are aboard. The guide describes every port of call in the world, listing details on attractions, beaches, hotels, restaurants, shopping, sports and other recreations, and includes suggestions on how to make the most of an eight-hour stay in port. The author has sailed on more than 750 cruise ships, visited every major port of call in the world, and personally inspected virtually every ship currently in operation.
