What is Cruise Radio?

Founded in 2009, Cruise Radio has become a trusted resource for travelers. The website features news, reviews, and original content that can’t be found anywhere else. At the same time, the weekly podcast offers insider tips, interviews, and reviews from actual passengers whose cruising experiences can help listeners decide what ships, activities, and shore excursions suit them.

The podcast has also broadcast live from ships worldwide, giving listeners an experience that is the next best thing to being there themselves!
