I prefer Cruise Travel. Porthole has tons of ads. Cruise Travel has alot too, but the articles and photos are fantastic!

I subscribe to both, but I prefer Cruise Travel. Porthole has too many ads.

Cruise Travel is the one I prefer, Porthole has too many ads, not enough substance. I actually like Budget Travel the best .

6 of 1, 1/2 doz. of the other, however, CT has a slight edge. Both get the cruise juices flowing..;-)

I like Cruise Travel because our friend Pam sometimes writes articles for it. I've never really even looked at Porthole.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

TOO MANY ADS!!! Advertising is what keeps the cost of the magazines down I have never seen Porthole, but my subscription for Cruise Travel is much more than reasonable, it's downright cheap. The more successful magazines and newspapers depend on advertising and ADVERTISERS depend on magazines/newspapers to spread the word about their product and services.

BTW do you notice who and what supports these on line cruise boards...ADVERTISEMENTS......and this you get for free because of the support of the cruise companies and travel agents.
