KAYAK gets in on Wave Season with New Partnership with Tripadvisor's Cruise Critic
As the cruise industry continues to rebound and move toward pre-pandemic levels, interest from travelers looking to book a cruise remains strong. To support this demand – particularly among KAYAK travelers – the two market leaders have come together to further drive bookings and assist those looking to return to sea.
How it works:
Now, KAYAK users can search and shop for a cruise by destination, cruise line and/or departure month directly on KAYAK.com. Once that search is initiated, the user is sent to a Cruise Critic-powered experience which leverages Cruise Critic's in-depth reviews and wide range of bookable cruises to help travelers find the cruise that best fits their needs.
"Teaming up with KAYAK to bring our vast inventory of cruise ships and reviews to their audience of travelers is an exciting opportunity," said
A win-win: For Cruise Critic, this partnership offers a boost in traffic for the site and its partners. For KAYAK, it provides the ability to scale their cruise business with one of the most trusted cruise partners in the industry.
"As momentum around cruises returns this year, we want to ensure that we continue bringing value to our travelers by providing them with all of their options in one place - cruises included," said
"We are extremely proud of the value that KAYAK finds in our product, and are honored to be able to help better serve their users," said
