The cruise market is in growth mode, and in 2016, Australian cruise passengers produced the biggest growth rate in the world. Yet, up until now there hasn't been a cruise guidebook specifically for Australian and New Zealand travellers. In The Best of World Cruising, respected travel personality Catriona Rowntree offers a curated list of the top 40 ocean and river cruise destinations around the world. For every destination, there is detailed information on key ports and not-to-be missed attractions, as well as a whole host of travel tips such as when to go, what to pack and whether this cruise is really for you. All advice is delivered in Catriona's charming and vivacious style, accompanied by many colourful images. In cases where Catriona has not personally visited a region, she has called on fellow cruise lovers to share their travel advice, including Livinia Nixon and Gabriel Gaté. There are also a number of 'Captains of Industry' interviews with Richard Branson and other travel or cruising experts. So whether you're a seasoned cruiser or just starting to consider booking your first cruising holiday, let Catriona fill you in on everything you should know before stepping on board.
