This week, debuts the T+L Cruise Finder.

With more than 70 percent of the world covered in water, it’s no surprise the cruise industry is the world's fastest-growing travel sector. But with so many waterways to explore, it's often difficult deciding which cruise—and cruise ship—is the right fit.

From first-timers to seasoned wayfarers, cruisers can now compare ships side by side. Powered by Find The Best, the T+L Cruise Finder makes it easy to search by ports of call, ship size, price point—you name it—and compare features. It's the first platform of its kind.

Our detailed database of the world’s ships allows users to compare each line’s unique personality, or discover which vessels offer Ionithermie spa treatments, provide 24-hour food service, or have an on-board putting green.

So whether you want to explore untouched stretches of the Norwegian Fjords on a small, upscale river cruise, or watch the sun rise over Cartagena from a top-deck nightclub on a major ocean liner, there’s a cruise out there for you. We know it. All you need to do is click, search, and find the best cruise ship.
