Things To avoid on a Cruise

There are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of your cruise experience and avoid any potential issues. Here are a few things to avoid:

  • Overpacking: Many cruises have limited storage space in cabins, so pack only what you need and consider using a small carry-on for any additional items.
  • Skipping the lifeboat drill: All passengers are required to attend a lifeboat drill before the ship sets sail. This is for your safety, so be sure to attend and take it seriously.
  • Not budgeting for additional expenses: While most cruises include food and entertainment, there are often additional expenses such as shore excursions, drinks, and gratuities. Be sure to budget for these in advance so you don’t have any unexpected expenses at the end of your trip.
  • Not checking the ship’s schedule: Be sure to check the ship’s schedule and plan your activities accordingly. Some ports of call may have limited time or certain excursions may only be offered on certain days.
  • Not being aware of the dress code: Most cruises have a dress code, especially during formal nights. Be sure to check the dress code and pack appropriate clothing.
  • Not understanding the disembarkation process: Be aware of when and how you will be disembarking the ship, and plan accordingly to avoid any confusion or delays.

Overall, a little bit of planning and common sense can go a long way in avoiding any issues and making the most of your cruise experience.
