Shoving Off - First Things First

Let's begin at the beginning once your cruise is booked and all your transfer arrangements have been made then set the factors that you control in your favor. Understand the circumstances for the boarding the vessel for instance. Will you be required to wait in long lines? Since your cabins are reserved think about finding a location close to the departing vessel where you can relax and maybe avoid the long boarding lines. Remember! Being first does not ensure a good time. Don't stress this detail. Last with time to spare is good to.

While Cruising

While cruising...

A few activities will insure that you actual cruise experience will be cool, calm, and collected. Many people like to lounge near pools and other common areas. If you're one of those people this tip will help:
