CruiseMates Launches First Cruise-Only ‘Best of the Web’ Bargains Newsletter

NEW YORK, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ — CruiseMates (www.cruisemates.com), the Internet’s primary source for cruise ship travel information since 1999, has unveiled an all new newsletter for cruise shoppers featuring listings of cruise bargains verified by CruiseMates as being “the Best Cruise Bargains on the Web”. These cruise bargain offers are verified by CruiseMates to be unmatched by any other cruise seller on the Internet.

Entitled “CruiseMates Best of the Web Cruise Bargains,” the newsletter is comprised of cruise bargain listings submitted to CruiseMates. CruiseMates then compares the listings to the top ten cruise sellers on the Internet, plus the Internet cruise agencies known to average the largest discounts, and other CruiseMates sponsors. Each special is verified to be the best value available on the Internet in the following four categories: ship, cabin category, sail date and price. Each listing is compared to at least 25 other sellers of cruises.

The listings on the newsletter are paid listings. However, no listing is accepted if it does not absolutely meet the stiff criteria CruiseMates has created in order to qualify it as being the “Best on the Web”. To date, more listings have been rejected than accepted, and CruiseMates expects that to continue.

The “CruiseMates Best of the Web Cruise Bargains Newsletter” is the first travel bargains newsletter with “Best of the Web” specifications dedicated solely to cruise specials. Most travel discount newsletters contain a majority of other types of travel offers. The number of subscribers to this new newsletter is already over 1/4 million cruise enthusiasts who opted in to receive cruise information from CruiseMates.
