The Key Elements of Great Trips

Preparing for Your Cruise There are many things you can — and have to — do ahead of time to ensure hassle-free sailing on your cruise holiday. The following is checklist you may find helpful: 1. Familiarize yourself with your ship. Check out reviews and passenger chat boards, listen to what people are saying on social, and study the deck plans, which you can probably find on the cruise line’s website. You want to know what to expect prior to getting onboard. Through social media sites, you can perhaps communicate with people who will be on the ship with you.

The Essentials of Cruises – Getting to Point A
If you have any special food needs (if you’re on a strict fruit diet, for instance) or food allergies, it’s best to tell the cruise line in advance. These are things they should be aware of early on. 3. Go through your paperwork. Make sure all of your cruise documents have your name spelled correctly and that it matches the name on your ID; otherwise, call your travel agent or cruise line as soon as possible. As well, your birth date must be correct. And while you’re at it, complete any necessary documents in the agent-provided packet or online. 4. Prepare a budget. Don’t forget to include souvenirs for yourself and for friends and relatives back home, and of course, gratuities for the crew. Determine how much cash you should have on hand, too. 5. List down all your medications. Update your prescriptions and ensure you have adequate supply for the whole time you will be on the trip. And grab some sunscreen while you’re at the drugstore. 6. Prepare your passport. You don’t want to go mad scrambling for your passport at the last minute prior to the cruise. 7. Make arrangements for those to be left behind. The babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter should know exactly when you will be back. 8. Gather key items. Choose a place in your home in which to deposit all items you’ll need, such as phone chargers, batteries, your camera, and the rest. Whenever you remember something that you have to bring, you’ll know exactly where you should put it. 9. Plan which credit card you’d like to bring. If you have plans of using your credit card, give the company a call to tell them you are traveling overseas (mention the specific countries). Besides a lost passport, a card flagged as a security risk is another thing you’ll hate when you travel. 8. Double-check everything as you make your way out. Simply put, check if you have everything you need, such as money, credit cards, paperwork, medicines, and so on. Activate your “out of office” reply setting on your work email. Give instructions to everyone who needs them, whether your staff or your children.
