By Matt Hannafin
The publishers of this horror referred to as this advisor Frommer's Cruises and Ports of name. it's going to have borrowed the identify of a now defunct commute ebook series--The whole Itiots' consultant to Cruises. As a devoted consumer of the Frommer publications for years--Italy, England, Spain, France, etc.--I, besides my husband and kids, determined to take a Caribbean cruise. evidently, I picked up the ever trustworthy Frommer advisor. by no means back. Frommer made its recognition on trustworthy, strong info. Then alongside got here a so-called author Matt Hannafin, who weems to have difficulty placing a sentence jointly. The publication is poorly written, even laughable in spots. i'll take care of that. What i could not care for is the mummy lode of incorrect information. We counted no less than 3 significant mistakes in keeping with web page. i used to be left considering if Hannafin had ever been to the Caribbean. i think now not. He turns out to have collected this hugely perishable details customarily from the web and doubtless from brochures passed out from many of the PR departments of the cruise ships themselves. do not depart domestic with this book!
You'll be sorry you probably did. the data within the 2010 version was once thoroughly outdated. after we made inquiries, we came across that a few of this data used to be copied be aware for be aware from the net, and hadn't been real in 3 or 4 years. this can be imagined to be a ebook up-to-date every year. Hannafin didn't replace it. The part on ports of name is so short that it was once thoroughly valueless. in case you are going to Hawaii, Mexico, or the Caribbean, you will get much better information at the web.
If the publishers of the entire Idiots' consultant ever are looking to relaunch their sequence, we propose they rent Hannafin. He matches the invoice perfectly.
So-called "writers" like him are destroying the as soon as stellar recognition of the Frommer publications. sooner or later we will use Fodor, no longer this valueless tome. keep your $25.
A disappointed buyer.
