Cruise web site unveiled

A new web site, Cruising From New
York was launched today by
Anne Campbell, a veteran cruise industry journalist.


  The web site is a “single click resource”, allowing cruisers to easily
find information on the three ports, including directions, parking and
suggested routes. The user-friendly format also features reviews of all
ships sailing in and out of New York, year-round itineraries, message
boards and cruise discounts. Those planning a pre- or post-cruise stay in
New York will find information on hotels, sightseeing, nightlife and
shopping in “The Best of New York” chosen by Campbell, who has lived in the
city for several decades. An intrepid bargain hunter, Campbell gives
insider’s advice on getting the best price in hotels, theater tickets,
dining and shopping plus “101 Very Cool Things To Do” in New York.

  According to Anne Campbell, “In 2006, over one million passengers came
through the City’s cruise facilities. Since 9/11, the port of New York has
undergone such massive growth in the number of ships and passengers that
new port facilities were added in Brooklyn and Bayonne, N.J. And, four of
the largest cruise lines have ships sailing year-round on voyages ranging
from one-day party cruises to a full circumnavigation of the globe. Air
travel has become so unreliable that people will drive up to ten hours to
sail from New York rather than fly to Florida.”

  Since finding the best ship and itinerary can be daunting with the
large number of vessels sailing in and out of the city, provides ship reviews and itineraries
arranged by destination such as the Caribbean, New England and
trans-Atlantic. A monthly calendar of 2008 and 2009 itineraries makes
narrowing down the selection process simpler by clicking on a ship name to
go directly to the vessel’s review.


  CruisingFromNewYork is owned by ShipCritic, LLC, which also owns
ShipCritic Blog ( Advertising, Marketing and
Technical Operations are managed by CruiseJungle Holdings, Inc. which
operates several other cruise related web sites.
