Looking for the best cruise blogs to read? I’ve put together a handy list of the most-read cruise blogs and websites of 2024…
How I sourced the data
It can be tricky to know how popular a website is. With cruise YouTube channels or social media pages, you can easily see how many followers someone has. But with cruise blogs, we have to use special tools.
For the monthly visitors, I used SimilarWeb, which is recognised as the most accurate way to measure website traffic.
Please bear in mind that data from tools can only ever be an estimate, and in many cases, the actual traffic numbers will be considerably higher, particularly for blogs with traffic outside of the US.
