Thanks to major advances in technology and advances in communications tools that just about anyone can use, tracking cruise ships is easier today than ever before. There are dozens of different ways to track cruise ships, right from your home computer. You can track cruise ships on a number of different ship tracking websites and you can even track cruise ships by accessing the vessel’s web cam online. Some of the top sites for tracking cruise ships include: SailWX (www.sailwx.info) and CruiseCal (www.cruisecal.com).
SailWX.com features a ship tracker that allows you to find a specific ship by name or call sign, track ship traffic worldwide, track tall ships, track cruising yachts, track Great Lakes shipping vessels, and it also allows you to track oceanographic research vessels, if this interests you. Other excellent features of the site include: tides and currents tracking by region and location, and weather observations such as water temperature, air temperature, barometric pressure, wave height, wind direction, wind speed, station locations, and hurricane tracking. The SailWX resource center is also an amazing feature. It has a section for National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) publications, an NOAA chart viewer, and an Automatic Identification System (AIS) information section. This site was created for sailors, so you’ll know that you are accessing the most up-to-date and relevant information! The SailWX.info website is owned and published by Mobile Geographics LLC, 8015 28th Ave NW, Seattle, Washington 98117.
