About Us

Cruise Capital at a glance

  • What it is: Created in February 2014 and officially launched in September 2014, Cruise Capital is designed to be a hub of information for cruise travellers. The website not only features the latest cruise industry news, but also interesting features, destination tips and our own personal cruise and ship reviews.
  • Who it’s for: Cruise Capital is a consumer focused website offering the latest news, features and reviews to the experienced cruise passenger. For our visitors, a cruise is more than just a holiday, it’s a passion and a way of life. Cruise Capital is helping to inspire the next generation of cruise travellers. Our group of young writers offer a unique perspective on the cruise industry, which several other websites and newspapers fail to deliver.
  • How it’s different: Cruise Capital is among a handful of UK based cruise news websites and being based in Southampton, the ‘Cruise Capital’ of the United Kingdom, we have a great advantage when it comes to visiting ships, and providing original content. The majority of photography we use on the website and in articles have been taken by our editor, Jordan.
