About Cruise Compete

"A revolutionary new website is going to change how you shop for cruises" --that's how Pauline Frommer described CruiseCompete in the lead travel story on MSNBC.COM when the site launched in 2003. Since then, Travel + Leisure, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times,, Kiplinger's, USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Houston Chronicle, the Detroit Free Press, and many other major publications have all written about how CruiseCompete is helping consumers connect with the travel agents who can provide the most value for their cruise vacations. does not sell travel; it is a free and anonymous service that helps cruisers find the best values for their cruise vacation. Consumers simply submit a ship name and sail date with a few other pieces of relevant information. Top travel agencies then craft custom responses to meet the specific needs of the consumer. Cruisers are notified by e-mail when new quotes are available, so they can view these quotes and contact the agencies directly to book their trips. (For people who need help choosing a cruise, a CruiseCompete member-agency offers Live Agent Help.) Travel agencies pay a fee based on the value of the travel they sell.

CruiseCompete LLC is an independent organization. We are not a travel agency or owned by a travel agency, and we provide travel agents with a steady stream of easy-to-manage, highly qualified leads.
