A cruise voyage is a dream vacation and with these tips you’ll make sure to make the most out of it.
Price isn’t everything
When you select a cruise consider to evaluate the price differences related to the type of vacation you are going to have. Sometimes a very small amount can separate you from that trip that does fit your personality and the way you like to enjoy your holiday, so the investment is worth it.
Don’t take your clothing selection for the trip lightly
In general, clothes must be informal for everything in the trip, but keep in mind that there are activities that require a bit more formal attire. In the case of Caribbean cruises, clothes must be fresh, but when you are facing cooler or colder weathers, you must have clothes for lower temperatures. In general, you should pack clothes for informal occasions (day clothes), formal clothing (for activities at night such as a visit to the bar or a spectacle in the theater), and clothes for special occasions, such as etiquette or cocktail dresses for galas or special acts.
Remember to have financial flexibility
It’s true that part of the pleasure of a cruise is that a large percentage of the holiday is already covered, but: have you thought of those moments when the cruise docks and you can descend and take a walk? Surely you won’t want to spend the whole time inside the ship and you may go to the ports to do some shopping so we recommend taking your credit cards and some cash, around 300 to 500 dollars, for a week trip. However, these are referential numbers that change depending on the capacity and the tastes of the passenger.
Take with you copies of your identity documents
In some cruises there may be a policy of taking your documents for safety during the trip. So it’s important to take with you some clear copies of your passport or any other document you consider pertinent.
Take all the previsions to arrive on time
The ideal is to be a day before the day of departure. Arriving on time is an advice that applies to all trips, but especially for cruises, which have very strict departure and arrival hours. If the ticket says a specific hour, the boat will not wait for you, and it’s possible that you are left in the hands of the port authorities, which will make you late and disappointed.
