  1. Rather than write a book review, the latest post on The Witterings of a Cruise Ship Reader Website is a look at the impact that Covid 19 has had on the cruising industry. Visit our website (addresss shown in the photo below) to see what Covid has done to the industry we all love so much and how it may affect the enjoyment of many going forward in the future. #thewitteringsofacruiseshipreader @WitteringsA https://thewitteringsofacruiseshipreader.wordpress.com/2020/08/18/how-is-the-cruise-industry-coping-with-covid/

  3. Sadly with the spread of Covid-19 around the world, most of the cruise ships have been taken out of service and many of us find ourselves in lockdown and isolated in our homes to stop the spread. That however gives us a great excuse to read books more and therefore I’ve just published not one, not two but three new book reviews on The Witterings of a Cruise Ship Reader website for you to have a look at. Also take the time to let all of our group members know what you are reading to get your through these tough times. Have a look at the reviews at the website below to see if the books could be a good read for you and also remember ....... Stay Safe ! https://thewitteringsofacruiseshipreader.wordpress.com/

  7. One of the most read books in 2018 around the world was The Tattooist Of Auschwitz by Heather Morris and if you were on a cruise last year you will have seen many of your fellow passengers reading it. Well Morris has now followed it up with a sequel entitled Cilka’s Journey. The Witterings of a Cruise Ship Reader is a website that reviews books both fiction and non fiction specifically with Cruise passengers in mind and we have just reviewed Cilka’s Journey. Why not visit our website and see if this or one or a number of our book reviews could lead you to selecting your next cruise holiday read.

  9. The Witterings of a Cruise Ship Reader is a website that I set up 18 months ago to provide cruise passengers with recommendations of great books to read when on holiday. To date over 150,000 passengers have read the reviews of books I post from across all different genres and have gone on to actually buy the books to read on holiday. My latest two book reviews are now available on the website and they are firstly Bowl, Sleep Repeat by legendary England Fast Bowler James ‘Jimmy’ Anderson which provides a fascinating and oftenly humorous insight on life travelling the world as a test cricketer. Second up is The Light Keeper by Cole Moreton which is a quirky novel about a lighthouse keeper near Beachey Head and a dysfunctional couple who are desperate to have a baby. See what I make of these two books and plenty of others on my website https://thewitteringsofacruiseshipreader.wordpress.com/
