7 Things You Should Never Ever Do When Taking A Cruise
When it comes to discussing the world of travel, you’ll usually hear us talking about getting around the country by plane or planning a major road trip. A form of travel not everyone may be used to though? Cruises. While some Americans make an annual tradition out of escaping away on the water, others are not as versed in this area of travel. To help to make sure that you have the best trip possible, take a look at these things that you’ll want to make sure to avoid when taking a cruise.
1. Don't forget to pack essentials in your carry-on bag.
If you're someone who's packing on the heavier side and plan on checking your bags before getting on board the ship, you'll want to make sure that you have all the essentials that you'll need until your luggage arrives to your room.
2. Don't book a room without careful consideration.
When planning a cruise, people often underestimate how important it is to choose your room wisely. Out of all the decisions you'll make, don't let this be one that you rush into!
3. Don't underestimate all the fun that you can have on board.
Many travelers may be excited about the destinations and attractions that your cruise will bring you to, but don't forget to enjoy all that's right here around you.
4. Don't forget to explore attractions outside of the cruise's sponsored outings.
Life is certainly easy when you leave all the planning to someone else, but don't let the cruise-sponsored attractions distract you from everything else that's in the area.
5. Don't forget to be mindful of the other passengers on the cruise.
When you're taking a cruise, it's best to be mindful of the fact that you're vacationing with people other than yourself and your companions. Examples of being mindful can be not hogging up all the great beach chairs or other on-board attractions.
6. Don't underestimate the power seasickness.
If you're someone who's used to being out on the water and has no fear of seasickness, I can almost assure you that this will mean you'll find yourself overcome with seasickness on your first cruise. While some cruises are less wavy than others, you should never underestimate the power of being seasick. This is one situation you'll want to be prepared for ahead of time... just in case!
7. Don't forget that you'll be off the grid.
There may be some chances where you'll find yourself with WiFi and the ability to connect into the world, but it's best you take advantage of the opportunity to stay off the grid while you're here on vacation and have the ability to do so.
