We are CruiseMaven

CruiseMaven was created for travelers by travelers. We cover and publish travel content that we know and love. From the ocean, air or hotels we want to help our readers get the most out of their travels and create extraordinary memories from our travel experts.

CruiseMaven was born

CRUISEMAVEN was launched in 2007 by Sherry Laskin a recognized cruise and travel writer, who used her love of cruises and trains to get around the world without ever stepping on a plane, creating CRUISEMAVEN along the journey.

Thousands of published articles later and featured in many publications like Travel Trade, Travel and Leisure News, Frommer’s, and in cabin books for Cunard, Holland America, and Seabourn. Sherry was able to build CRUISEMAVEN into a respected travel media platform that serves as a source for thousands of readers monthly, and has helped thousands of travelers set sail confidently with CRUISEMAVEN’s reviews and advice on cruise lines and destinations.

Today CRUISEMAVEN is owned by Wesley Edwards, an entrepreneur and travel enthusiast himself, whose passion for business and travel coincided when the opportunity to acquire CRUISEMAVEN from Sherry emerged. With a fresh and creative vision to transition the site into the next era as a respected and trusted source of travel media in the modern travel world. Through building a team of travel writers, freelance journalists, and redesigning the CRUISEMAVEN brand we will push into the next era with a new look, and creative fire to fuel our readers travels like never before.

CRUISEMAVEN will continue to be a dominate leading source for cruise news, reviews, and advice, but we will grow to further help readers when it comes to air travel, hotels and resorts, trains, destinations, and loyalty programs, bolstering its promise to help millions of readers Travel Far, Travel Smart & Travel Well.
