Hengelo, The Netherlands – Cruises are one of the most popular vacation types, combing multi-destination travel with all the amenities of a top hotel. Fans of cruise travel cite convenience as the main determinant why they chose a luxurious floating hotel. However, many travelers continue to express dissatisfaction when it comes to planning activities and sight-seeing at the various ports they will be visiting. Passengers want to know what options are available once they’ve reached their destination. Cruise Crocodile is one of the hottest information clearing houses in the cruise industry, compiling detailed information on all the major ports of call so that travelers can make the most informed decisions about their vacation experience.
The content and contributions for the popular website come from a network of local guides, port agents, port authorities, cruise veterans and tourist offices. Cruise Crocodile makes certain that information is updated regularly so that their visitors can create for themselves the perfect vacation.
“Everyone deserves a vacation,” says Linda van der Hoeven, technical director and head of marketing. “We want to ensure that our visitors’ vacation is everything they dreamed of and more. That means giving people the precise details they need to plan out activities and shore excursions. We answer the question: You arrive in port and then what?”
“What” includes tours, shopping, entertainment, and the information they need to sightsee independently. Visitors learn about currency, customs, and culture along with an assortment of “things to do.” So far, the feedback has been entirely positive and, as van der Hoeven explains, “There happens to be a lot of information available for people who arrive at a travel destination by air, not as much for those traveling by cruise. We supply that information and help people make the most of what limited time they have in port.”
Cruise Crocodile is a free online cruise travel guide that provides up-to-date information about the world’s most popular ports, including photos and detailed maps. Visitors can search by region and port and are given access to photos, transportation possibilities, and what the most popular sites to visit when given a limited time frame. According to those at Cruise Crocodile, part of the solution they offer is being able to provide exploration suggestions that are manageable within a condensed time frame such as that of a port visit.
