What are Affiliate Links
Affiliate links are unique URLs used to track the traffic sent from our website to the advertiser’s website. When you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, we receive a small commission. However, this commission comes at no extra cost to you. It’s a way for us to earn revenue while providing you with valuable, free content.
These affiliate commissions help us keep highseascruising.com running smoothly. They support our research, writing, and the overall maintenance of the site. Most importantly, they allow us to continue providing you with the latest and most reliable information about cruise lines, cruise ships, and vacation destinations.
Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance
We choose our affiliate programs very carefully. Our primary criterion for selecting a program is the quality of the products and services. We only promote products and services that meet our high standards and align with our commitment to providing the best for our readers. While we do earn income from these programs, our recommendations are not influenced by the potential earnings.
Our philosophy is simple: if a product is featured on our website and promoted with an affiliate link, it means that the product has passed our rigorous selection process. Therefore, you can trust that any product we recommend is of a certain level of quality.
Transparent Earnings Disclaimer
