Smart people invest their time and money wisely. One of the best investments has always been in shopping around before you make a major purchase to make sure you're getting the best value for your money. Buying a vacation is a good example: consumers make an average of 38 visits to travel web sites before booking a vacation.

At CruiseCompete, we don't think buying a cruise should be that much work. So we've brought together independent travel agencies onto one web site to make shopping around quick and easy. Just select your cruise, and let travel agents come to you with their best offers so you can compare them all in one place.

This simple concept is so incredibly powerful that the Wall Street Journal, CNN, Travel + Leisure, Kiplingers, Frommers, USA Today, Bloomberg, AARP and many more of the worlds most influential publications have raved about since we first launched in 2003.

The best travel agents specialize in a few specific cruise lines. They become experts at working with these lines to get the best deals for clients, and they build up a knowledge base from their experiences and those of their clients to give great advice on how to best enjoy these cruises. CruiseCompete's huge volume of quote requests lets these specialists focus on the cruise lines that they know most intimately, and it shows in the glowing travel agent reviews customers post on our web site for you to read.

CruiseCompete is also a comprehensive source of cruise information. Our sister-site,, features cruise articles, tips and travel diaries written by a staff of more than 20 professional travel writers. We also offer ship and port reviews, cruise deck plans, shore excursion options, cruise price prediction and budget tools, and so much more. Our e-mail newsletter is one of the most popular in the industry, and keeps you up to date on all of the new developments in the world of cruising.

Thanks for taking the time to watch this video. I hope you'll join the millions of people who use CruiseCompete to research, shop for, and book wonderful cruise vacations.
