Don’t get stuck on a Caribbean beach with a billion other people. CruiseWise announces the Port Crowd Calculator, a free tool that instantly shows how busy every worldwide port will be over the next two years, and helps you find deals to get there. This revolutionary service is designed to make it easy for cruisers to make smart decisions about when and where to vacation.
The CruiseWise Port Crowd Calculator is the first resource of its kind. Use the interactive world map to see how busy each port will be by using the date slider at the top. Or, personalize the map by selecting a specific cruise itinerary and only see how crowded the ports will be on your cruise. The tool also links directly into the CruiseWise booking engine, where users can see cruise deals, explore the ports and ships, and book any cruise directly online.
“No one wants to be in small town square that’s totally overwhelmed,” says CruiseWise co-founder and COO Steve Davis. “Your stomach sinks when you pull into a port and you see six or seven cruise ships already there. Shore excursions get booked up, the beaches are crowded, and it’s just less fun. It doesn’t happen often, and thanks to CruiseWise, it’s now easy to avoid.”
Along with the fully customized WiseGuides, which have already been downloaded by thousands of cruisers, the Port Crowd Calculator is the second major tool released by CruiseWise to help cruisers plan and enjoy their cruise vacations. The CruiseWise Port Crowd Calculator is a free resource available to all users and can be accessed instantly at CruiseWise.com/PortCrowds.
CruiseWise is cruise search simplified. Find cruise deals using more options available than ever before, easily compare routes and prices, and visually select your cabin on the ship. CruiseWise has been featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and made headlines in the Los Angeles Times as a new cruise booking website that “shines like a beacon.” Based in San Francisco, we’re on a mission to take the mystery out of online cruise search.
