Cruises can be a great way to see multiple countries in one journey, but sometimes travelers may find themselves wanting to take only a portion of the trip or combine the cruise with another to continue seeing even more locales.
While travelers have long had the option to book one-way itineraries or back-to-back cruises, planning these itineraries can often be difficult and time consuming when trying to fit specific stops into the trip.
That’s where CruiseWire comes in. The online travel agency has launched the world’s first cruise booking website dedicated to providing one-way cruise itineraries.
Through the platform’s Back to Back Cruise Search tool, travelers can easily put together the cruise of their dream by inputting the destinations they’re interested in and the dates of their journey to see which cruise lines have offerings matching their interests.
Searches can include details like the cruise line of interest, the year the ship was built, the number of layover days on the journey, and whether the ship includes amenities like a water slide.
Travelers can get even more detailed with the platform's Custom World Cruise Search feature, which searches cruises based on the specific cities (as opposed to searching the entire destination) of interest, creating customized itineraries that hit each of the requested stops.
In addition to its search features, CruiseWire also has a variety of recommended itineraries that range from trips in Alaska and Asia to journeys in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Hawaii, and Northern Europe. Those looking for a longer excursion can also check out the company's recommended world cruises, which stop at countries across the globe over a period of 90 to 110 days.
CruiseWire currently offers over 25,000 different cruises that sail to 121 countries with 11 cruise lines. These include Carnival Cruise Line, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, MSC Cruises, Seabourn Cruise Line, Cunard Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Costa Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, and Royal Caribbean International.
