Launching Our Book

Finally, after four years of writing and rewriting, we are happy to say, our book is ready to launch! 

It has been quite a journey and we know you will enjoy the results. So many faces, stories, and pictures to see, as well a wealth of insider knowledge and practical advice to guide you through the steps to create your own amazingly enjoyable cruise adventure!

Book Cover Digital

Creatively sharing your experiences with others, and so much more

We created the book in two editions ~ printed and digital, so you get to choose, or get one of each as they truly are different.

The printed book is 384 pages in full color, with wonderful quotes and stories that will enlighten you, make you smile, and help to take the guess-work out of planning an exciting adventure. Though we do emphasize cruising, the ideas and suggestions within the book can apply to most travel itineraries, the difference being that you cruise between locations. 

The digital book was crafted using Apple’s iBooks authoring program, that makes the experience enticing. The information contained in both versions is the same; however, the digital book allows for multi-touch screens that whisk you to websites, movies, and blog entries that highlight the topic you are researching, never losing your place in the book.  All photographs are identified as to their locale, some are also enhanced with additional information in popup widgets. The idea is to immerse you in the research, but allow you to choose the speed and order of learning. And every topic is searchable!

Our website www.maxyourcruise.com has links that allow you to Look Inside both the digital and print editions.

You can purchase the digital version ($14.99 + tax) from the iBook Store by CLICKING HERE, or from the links on our website (listed above).

The print edition ($24.95 + tax and shipping) has arrived for distribution, but the logistic for purchasing online are still in the construction stage. But send Carolyn an email using this LINK TO CAROLYN so she can email or call you regarding your request.
