About Us

Cruise it Yourself! is our dream.   The eureka moment came while walking away from a cruise ship in Cadiz, Spain.   So many of our fellow cruisers were waiting in line for buses and paying over priced amounts for tours, we knew there was a way we could help.

We are Ben and Rea, two world travelers who began collecting information and planning our own way on a 2 year backpacking and cruise trip.   We had to be frugal and save money, so we learned to figure things out on our own, and you can too.

Here we are at the start of our trip.


We have personally visited and toured over 60 ports, collecting information to share with you.    

We’ve planned day trips, figured out train and bus schedules, gathered essential information, and made maps from Mexico to Turkey, adding more ports all the time.

We hope our adventures inspire you, and our information empowers you to save money on shore excursions, and Cruise it Yourself!
