Let us share some hacks and tips for all cruise lovers.

What are the Best Tips for Cruise Lovers?

1. Always Keep the Contact Information for the Ship With You

Always bring the ship's contact information with you when heading ashore. Those particulars are normally printed in the nightly bulletin delivered to your cabin. If something goes wrong while you're away from the ship or you need any sort of help, you can easily notify the cruise line as soon as possible if you have the information at hand.

2. Arrive a Day Ahead of Schedule at Your Departing Port

If you're going on a cruise, we recommend arriving at the port ahead of time. This isn't just to ensure that you don't miss the boat. It also gives you time to adjust to your new time zone. European cruises, in particular, may be very port-intensive, with a lot of sightseeing, so you'll want to be rested and ready to go as soon as the voyage starts.

3. Research Ports in Advance

Port calls, which are — only a few hours — are at the center of most cruises. If you don't prepare ahead of time for what you'll do in these ports, you'll miss out on a huge portion of the cruise experience.

Once you've decided which ports you'll visit, do as much research as you can to ensure the most perfect day in port.

4. Don’t Over pack

Packing smart is the key to happy cruising. Cruising is all about resting and having fun and over packing and heavy luggage can ruin that experience. Moreover, there are launderettes on board many ships where you may do a load or two of clothes every few days. If not, you can get your laundry washed on board. It usually returns within a day or two.

Doing a few loads of laundry on a ship is much better for the freedom of not having to tote a large suitcase. You'll also want to leave room in your suitcase for all the little trinkets you'll find along the way.
