Update on Cruiseable's development roadmap

Next phase focuses on more community elements

In our continuing effort to create the world's most transparent travel company, we wanted to share with you the progress we've made since our last post on the subject, Bugs & features roadmap (which, in retrospect, sounds like a college course in entomology).

The next big feature set involves building out additional community elements, including integration of photos and videos from travelers, using the Rivet platform. (Rivet's a cool startup in Austin, Texas — check out their site!: rivet.works. Their tagline, "Inspire experiences between people and your brand," dovetails nicely with our mission.)

At Cruiseable,  we have agreements in place with 31 cruise lines, have reviews or previews of 360-plus ships, offer a database of more than 10,000 photos and have tools to help you select from more than 10,000 cruises out there. So you know there will be a bug or two with a startup that just launched in March and is whipping around the next bend.

Here's the latest:
