Douglas Ward was already the top critic for the cruise industry when we started promoting the annual Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships in 2002, but his book was not yet well known to the general US audience. Lande PR changed that.
Today, the Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships is regarded as the industry “Bible” – and Mr. Ward has been quoted often by The Associated Press, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, Charles Osgood-CBS Radio, and cruise specialty media and reporters. The arrival of the QM2 in the US? A & E featured Douglas in a TV special. The Concordia disaster? The AP interviewed Douglas the day it occurred. The Titanic centenary? The New York Times talked to Douglas.
And even though our assignment is to publicize the book in the US as it launches each year, queries come in from travel media for the Maritime Sherlock Holmes all year every year .
I am truly appreciative of the magnificent work Lande Communications has done during the past several years in promoting my book, Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships, to television, radio, magazines and newsprint media. The team at Lande has done a wonderful job, and I don’t know how Berlitz and I would manage without them.
