Cruising World Magazine recently unveiled a revamped website designed to be more responsive, interactive and mobile device-compatible.

Readers are able to glide through galleries by swiping images with the use of a touch, and advertisers’ messaging is clear and strategically placed throughout all gadgets, the magazine said. The site automatically resizes the display layout for all content and adjusts advertising units, based on the device the consumer is using.

"CruisingWorld.com, just like SailingWorld.com, is now fully responsive, loads quickly and features a clean design with improved navigation,” Cruising World editor Mark Pillsbury said in a statement. “Our community may now access all site content in real time, including our robust charter directory and library by computer, tablet and mobile phone, which is where a large base of our followers live."

Significantly larger video and image windows create ease for the navigator in the main viewing pane.

‎”We are thrilled to introduce to our loyal readers a unique design with a more engaging experience, for both racers and cruisers alike,” added Sally Helme, group publisher of Cruising World, Sailing World and the NOOD Regattas. “Our audience and advertisers deserve the best display quality, and that is what we are giving them on a mobile platform that is user-friendly, with the best presentation possible. The new website is truly about the journey and deep dives into what cruising is all about.”
