Sailing through the cool summer breeze in the middle of an ocean sounds like a great plan, to escape your otherwise busy and monotonous life. Planning for a Cruise is fun but sometimes it gets a bit tricky. The important part is that you need to choose and plan beforehand so that this becomes a memorable experience. Today I will be sharing with you, 5 tips to experience the best cruise of your life. Let’s dive straight in!
Research meticulously and pick the best cruise for yourself
Always do your research before booking a cruise. Some of the things you should keep in mind are the vessel size, your most favorite ports, the age group of your kids and what type of on board or off board activities you want on your cruise trip.
Packing can be crucial and very stressful for a lot of us. It is advisable to make a list beforehand so that you don’t end up forgetting essentials. Bring a camera for pictures because you wouldn’t want to miss imprinting this beautiful experience on film and reliving it later, through it.
Bring medicines along with you, because a lot of people get sea sick. If you have a particular medical condition, make sure to keep extra meds in order to ensure your wellbeing on board. Make sure you carry your passport and identification cards because you will be visiting a lot of foreign ports so you need to be prepared with your identity documents.
Some other things which you can pack in your suitcase:
- Portable charger for camera, phone, laptop
- Swim suits
- Private VPN
- Comfortable shoes
Make sure that the cruise you choose has amazing on board and off board activities because without them, a cruise trip is nothing. So don’t forget to book a family friendly cruise which offers amazing on board and off board activities. Some of the activities could include:
- Water slides
- Zip lines
- Rock climbing walls
- Surfing simulation
- Sky diving simulation
- Carnival’s sky ride
Before booking a cruise, always check your budget. Even if your budget seems generous, do some research before buying/signing up for any Packages. You should plan your budget by considering the cost of cruise, food, buffet, on-deck and off-deck activities.
Don’t rely on the same buffet every day. You will find various restaurants and cafes offering scrumptious food. Reservations are a bit tricky because most people wait until the second night to book and it gets crowded.
To avoid any hassle, make sure you make a reservation on your first day. In some cases you could also get lucky and get free food!
Following some of these simple yet essential tips you can ensure to make your cruise trip amazing and highly memorable.
Plan a year ahead. It’s always nice to book for some really cool spots and earn discounts by booking a year in advance. This helps save money and gets you and your family reserved for some exclusive fun on board. Keep your budget slightly flexible, choose wisely and have a lot of fun.
