Cruise411.com has been named a “Forbes Favorite” honoree in the Travel-Cruises category of Forbes` Spring 2001 issue of the “Best of the Web.”
Citing a feature that lets consumers “compare up to four cruises simultaneously,” as highly useful and distinctive, the following review of Cruise411.com was published on the Web and in the February 26, 2001 issue of Forbes magazine:
“If it floats on the big briny, it`s here. Use the Cruise Finder feature to search offerings from more than 28 cruise lines. The Cruise Buzz and Learning Center sections let you compare special interest cruises (like food, finance or music) or check out reviews and awards (Crystal`s got the most). Never heard of a Muster Drill (pre-launch safety drill)?
Check the FAQs. Message boards dish on dinky cabins and sea-worn entertainment. Lets you reserve without a deposit, and all cruises booked here are discounted 10%.” Cruise411.com ranked the highest in the Travel-Cruises category, placing higher than such travel heavyweights as Travelocity.com, Uniglobe and Expedia.com
as well as many of the cruise lines` own Web sites.
