Best of the Web - Cruises
Forbes Magazine

by Christopher Elliott

Looking for something different in your next cruise? If you'd like to try bird-watching on the Amazon or Scuba diving in the Seychelles instead of traditional cruise ships, stop here. Search through dozens of small-ship tour operators by date, location, activity and trip length. A search for Arctic Region cruises yielded 94 options, including "To the Land of the Ice Bears," which promises kayaking among icebergs, and "Antarctic Peninsula for Divers and Photographers." Results can be saved to an Expedition Folder for reference. Signing up for an account also entitles you to new 'Just-Released Offers' section, with reduced rates for members.

BEST: Don't miss the Research section, with generous amounts of information on local culture, natural history, do's and don'ts and recommended reading.

WORST: No online booking.
