Cruiseable

Cruiseable at a glance

Here’s what our startup Cruiseable is all about.

  • What it is: Cruiseable is cruise discovery engine and online travel publication that makes it easy and fun to discover, plan and book a great cruise vacation.  
  • Who Cruiseable is for: We’re for anyone who’s looking to research or book a cruise vacation, with a primary emphasis on tech- and mobile-savvy travelers.
  • Why Cruiseable? Have you tried to book a cruise lately? Here’s why we launched Cruiseable.
  • How Cruiseable is different: We’re a consumer publication (think Consumer Reports for cruises) with rich visuals (think Pinterest), travel and port guides (think Fodor’s), ship reviews (think Berlitz Guide), a booking site (with knowledgeable travel experts handling bookings) and cruise community where passengers share media and experiences. No other site or app combines all these elements.
  • Tools: (1) Our Bliss Filters atop each page help you zero in on the cruise that’s perfect for you. (2) Our Compare Cruises tool lets you do side-by-side comparisons. (3) Our Group Cruises Tool lets you save money by traveling with like-minded cruisers.
  • Platforms: The Cruiseable.com website and the Cruiseable mobile app for the iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini (so far!).
