I like Cruise Travel, the letters to the Editor are worth the price, alone.

Cruise Travel was much better years ago....so many, more ads now, but I loved the letters column, and had one letter printed myself...I subscribed when it was $9.95, and was a long time customer, but now, Cruisemates is my "magazine" of choice....All that info is here, and more timely

I used to love Porthole, but I don't know if they still publish that one?? I know there got to be too many ads in that one too, but some of the photo's were amazing.

The reason for the advertisement ..it means the magazine is successful and is making $$$.. and the advertisers know with the large number of subscriptions they will reach a greater market.. oh yes.. keeps the cost of the magaine done too.

We have subscribed to CRUISE TRAVEL for years. We find it gets us what we want to know especially the section that list all the cruise lines and ports. One note though---I get letters and phone calls that are not from Cruise travel asking me to renew my subscription. Those calls and letters are fraudulent and if you agree to letting them renew your subscription you will pay a very high price. I have filed complaints with the Attorney General of the state where the calls and letters come from and that state AG was aware of what that bunch was doing. It is certainly not endorsed by Cruise Travel.

I subscribed to Cruise Travel for years and years, but ended it earlier this year, which caused them to harrass me several times a week for a month before they finally got it that I was not renewing. Too much advertising. and Im sick of every letter starting off by.. I am so and so and have taken ___ (insert your own number) of cruises and this is my complaint!!

I can go on line and read for free.
