CruisePortAtlas starts Blog, fights World Hunger

Cruising is a great way to travel: relaxing, stress-free, simple, inexpensive (relatively) and fun.  But I’m not interested in the ship as much as I am in the places we are going to drop anchor.  But the challenge is making the most of very limited time.  How do I plan my visit so I make sure its the best possible experience?  How do I make sure I don’t miss the best attractions, sites and activities?  At, our aim is to help cruisers with just that issue.  Over time we plan to add more and more ports.  Our focus right now is the Mediterranean because there are so many cruisers going there and there are so many ports where ships stop.

And we have formed a partnership with Pleasure Travel in South Florida (the capital of world cruising) and started a partner site,  Here you can get personalized help booking and planning your next cruise adventure.

We believe that world travel is an important venture.  We also believe in giving back, so for every dollar we earn at our two sites we will contribute 5% to Action Against Hunger, one of the US’s finest hunger charities.  Check out their site.
