Fun to read, but a little dated

The author is a wonderful creator of atmosphere through use of colorful and perceptive turn of phrase that often borders on poetry. Unfortunately that nature reads as pretentious for such lite fare. A cruise industry brochure this book is and a pamphleteer Mr. Graham is not. It made modern cruising come across as staid and stodgy to the minds of anyone under 40. Remember that this man has not seen the floor of anything less than a suite for 30 years and it shows.

For a charming, down to earth and truly valuable primer with all of the attendant imagery but none of the cerbral pretense, Geraldine Saunders' "The Complete Guide to a Successful Cruise" would be a far better choice to get a soon-to-be cruiser enthused and prepared. Ms. Saunders makes it fun to read while reminding everyone not to forget cruise ship etiquette and tourist-philosophy which is much the same as Mr. Graham's perspective. She is also the true godmother of the cruise tsunami that began in the late 70s. She's the author of the original book "The Love Boat(s)"!

Otherwise, Love ya madly, Mr. M.G.!

I have not read this book, but I have read his others; this review is more in support of its author. It is a sad commentary of our educational system that a gentleman like Maxtone-Graham is severely criticized for his language skills by those who are obviously far more familiar with TV news than they are with a dictionary. Read anything well-written from thirty to fifty years ago and it is clear how far our language skills have deteriorated. As a former teacher I applaud M-G's application of the language and its nuances and censure those who believe a ten word tweet is great literature.

I don't understand why anyone -- even an "average joe" -- would consider this a difficult read. It's true that Mr. Maxtone-Graham's diction is a bit more formal than is usual nowadays, but I found this to be one of the book's greatest charms. I also enjoyed the personal tone, and did not find it overly self-indulgent. That may be a matter of taste. What worries me is that anyone with a normal IQ would find this book hard to understand. And you don't have to be familiar with every word to understand a book.

I found "Cruise Savvy" to be a refreshingly different kind of travel guide, and it sold me on the idea of cruises. We booked our first shortly after I read it, and found the advice we'd taken with us from the book to be as helpful and appropriate as that found in more conventional travel guides. Not as comprehensive, perhaps -- but it made up for that in providing an enjoyable reading experience and in evoking a "cruise mood." In short, "Cruise Savvy" combines helpful information with reading pleasure. It is perhaps best read along with a laundry-list kind of guide, for maximum preparedness.

I purchased (or rather, ordered) this little volume while cruising the North Atlantic on the same vessel as Mr. Maxtone-Graham. The cruise was my sixth or seventh so obviously I did not buy the book specifically for the information contained there-in; rather for the interesting read. I re-read it regularly when looking forward to another cruise. I enjoy reading of past shipboard life and the experiences of the author. He does give some good advice to those new to cruising and, while I agree that a seven-day cruise may be a good way to start, I would not take one of less than two weeks duration - one cannot get into the shipboard way of life in less than that time. I also agree with him that cruises with consecutive sea-days are the way to go(that's the only way to REALLY get into the ship-board life!) In answer to the critics, perhaps it is a book best enjoyed by those who have already cruised. I love it!

Although having been on only three cruises in my almost 70 years, I love remembering every single sensation of being on the sea in these beautiful ships. And remembering the wonderful, gracious women and men from around the world, who have taken care of me.....me who has always taken care of others!
(And, please, don't see me as a non-traveler....have traveled to many wonderful places around the world....just usually by air rather than by sea.)

Went to Amazon to find cruise ship "fiction" that would take me back on the sea in a ship and stumbled across this non-fiction book that put me right back ship-board and into the intricate descriptions that are so lacking in fiction.

I thank the author, John Maxlone-Graham, for allowing a good deal of his book to be opened in Amazon's "Look Inside". (That's how I buy books on Amazon)
I looked inside and found the aboard ship memories that I wanted in his descriptions. Many like remembered photographs.

Well, now. After my husband died I thought I had taken my last cruise.
Not! After reading this book, I want to go back on a ship more than ever.
Thank you!

Mr. Maxtone-Graham's book is the product of any number of trips on any number of ships bound for any number of ports. Though it contains a great deal of sage advice, it isn't a guide (and Mr. Maxtone-Graham offers spirited and eloquent reasons for just why it isn't). It is, rather, an invitation to step onboard an ocean liner and experience a pleasure far too few are familiar with in this age of hustle-and-bustle. Language used well is also a pleasure, and those familiar with Mr. Maxtone-Graham's writings will easily recognize his wonderful prose. If you're interested in booking passage on a liner (any liner) but have your doubts, this book will erase them. I can't wait to set sail, myself.
IS THE AUTHORS INTENTION TO INFORM US OR SHOW US HOW LARGE HIS VOCABULARY IS??? FOR THE AVERAGE "JOE" GOING ON THE 1ST CRUISE THEY CAN EASILY BE SCARED AWAY BY MR MAXTONE-GRAHAMS' USE OF EXTENSIVE VERBAL DIARRHEA. HIS VERBIAGE GIVES AN AIR OF PRETENTIOUSNESS..... REQUIRING IMMODIUM NOT DRAMAMINE..
