it is important that you know about our relationships with cruise travelers just like you, the cruise lines and travel providers we report on and how they affect our unbiased and unedited cruise reviews, and travel-related articles. 

First, our cruise reports are editorially independent of the cruise lines, destination marketers and consumers.

We report it, as we see it.

The good and the bad. Consumers who submit reviews are not subject to editorial review and revision so long as their review is on point and does not contain comments that anyone with common sense would find offensive. Consumer reviews that inform and help others make better decisions is what we like. We support Cruise Reviews Online, primarily through our other commercial-based web sites that generate income for us. We do not get paid by any travel supplier including the cruise lines to write articles or reviews for them. Further, we don't submit in advance text of what we write to anyone, nor remove comments that the cruise line might object to.

We call it like it is!
And finally, we do not cruise for free! While others may take that free cruise, get invited on press trips and inaugural cruises, we prefer to travel like you and experience for ourselves what's on offer. That way you really get an unbiased and unedited report. We want you to trust our reporting.


In the end, it's up to you to decide if we have meet your expectations and provided you with the information you're looking for.
