Overall Rating, Gold Stars- Gold stars reflect the Berlitz Cruise Guide star system as used in The Berlitz Ocean Cruising & Cruise Ships 2009 by Douglas Ward, published annually for over 25 years.
How Berlitz rates the ships is detailed in the Knowledge Center, so you know what to expect at each star level. Over 400 separate items on each ship are objectively evaluated and scored to produce the star ratings, so ships can have the same star level based on entirely different merits.
Seasite is licensed to use the Berlitz star system to indicate the overall rating of ships offered for your group events.
Seasite’s Power Search allows you to select a range of star ratings in a single search to include multiple service levels. For example, from 3+ stars to 4+ stars.
Hotel Equivalents – In addition to the star rating for each ship, we also identify “hotel-equivalents” for each star-level of ships as a way for event planners who are more familiar with hotel brands to interpret the Berlitz stars.
Blue stars - Blue stars are provisional ratings for new ships listed in seasite.com which have not yet been rated by Berlitz. The provisional blue stars are authorized by Douglas Ward based on his most recently rated ship from the same fleet.
** Star Breeze and Star Legend will debut in May 2015
