Format: Paperback
I bought this book for one cruise. Stern has a lot of knowledge about the tonnage of ships! This is the same guide he puts out year after year with some editorial updates. In other words he inputs new ships that come out that year. The star awards are questionable - is it due to getting cruises gratis? Nowadays, you can get far more info on the internet and better itinerary guidance from the ship's websites or wikitravel. It appears to be low quality production. Perhaps you get what you pay for in self publication.

We are constant cruisers and try to cruise on as many different cruise lines as possible. We take three to five cruises each year. Our source for ship ratings and descriptions in Stern's annual guide. We have found it entirely accurate and reliable.

I have been using Stern's Guide to the Cruise Vacation for years. It so helpful to get details about each ship from someone who has been on so many cruises and can assess them from a professional point of view. I find it easy to read and very detailed.
