Full Disclosure

WAVEJourney.com Disclosure Statement

Welcome to the WAVE Journey website and blog.

Our goal is to provide fellow travellers with recommendations of products, destinations, services, businesses, cruises, restaurants, resorts, hotels and all things travel-related. We offer our opinions and recommendations based on our own personal experience. We also share with you the tips, suggestions, recommendations and reports of independent travellers that provide us with content that they deem worthy of sharing. Our aim is to provide you with articles that will inspire you to travel and try new products for yourself. Only you can decide if any particular product, cruise, destination, resort, etc., is right for you or if you care to experience it.

Full Disclosure
We do not allow any influence by an outside source (such as a sponsor, media trip, product used for testing and review, free travel, etc) to compromise our integrity or influence our articles and reviews. We feel that over the years, our readers have learned that they can trust our recommendations – but only you can make that judgement.

Hotels, cruise lines, destinations, product companies, tour companies, etc. do support WAVEJourney.com and WAVEJourneyblog.com.

Some questions you may have:
Q: Do cruise lines, hotels, companies, destinations, etc. ever pay us to write specific articles?
A: Never.

Q: Do outside sources ever dictate what we write?
A: Not a chance. No way. No How!

Q: Do companies ever ask us to remove stories that they may not like from our web site?
A: It hasn’t happened yet and if it did we wouldn’t anyway.

Q: Do we filter negative blog comments?
A: No. To keep spam at bay we do moderate comments before they are published.

Other notes:
Sometimes we travel for free or at a discount. Sometimes we receive products for free, at a discount or as loaners. Sometimes we get invited for a free meal, activity or event. Sometimes we accept products from suppliers, for the express purpose of a giveaway, sweepstakes, or contest. This is regularly accepted practice throughout the industry but we’d be remiss not to spell it out here. This is typical of the industry we are in and assists us to keep the website and blog going – otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to afford to continue.

Only you – the reader – can be the judge of whether you feel that you can trust our reviews and articles. But, we are not going to recommend anything that we wouldn’t pay full price for ourselves.

We encourage you to email us with your comments, suggestions, tips and recommendations. We also invite you to subscribe to our free monthly newsletter from the sign-up box below.

Cheers and happy travels!
