Cruise Journalists Launch Small-Ship Website

Veteran cruise travel writers Heidi Sarna and Ted Scull launched, a website focused on small-ship cruising aboard vessels carrying up to 300 passengers. The site focuses on small ships, “those quirky, offbeat vessels that take a few hundred (or just a few dozen) passengers on adventures both far-flung and close-to-home,” said Scull.

Sarna and Scull created the website as a resource for small-ship travelers, and included information on more than 350 vessels organized into five ship and voyage-style categories: oceangoing, river cruises, coastal cruises, sailing ships and expedition cruises. The site also features destination overviews, feature articles, news items, top-picks lists and cruise vacation images.

Scull has sailed and explored across the world, authoring four editions of 100 Best Cruise Vacations, three book-length accounts of his journeys, plus hundreds of newspaper, magazine and website articles. Sarna has spent more than 20 years as a travel journalist, writing for Frommer’s Cruise Guides and, along with magazines, newspapers and websites ranging from Conde Nast Traveler and USA Today to and Expat Living.

“As more travelers seek out adventurous and authentic alternatives to the standard big-box cruise, will be there to help them zero in on their very own quirky cruise,” said Sarna. “That perfect, cozy little vessel that will take them off the beaten path, and show them the world.”
