Consumer Reports Travel Letter
Fresh off a cruise? or planning to take one? CruiseMates, an online magazine, lets consumers rate ships on a scale of one to five for food, service, accommodations, entertainment, overall conditions, and value for your money, and asks for your personal comments.
What's more, you can call up others' completed polls and compare three ship ratings at a time. This feature is especially helpful for those lines that have multiple vessels, like Norwegian Cruise Lines. If you can't find what you want from other travelers' feedback, you can search CruiseMates' own "editorially independent" ratings, which score individual ships from one to five stars. The more stars, the better.
