HOW TO PLAN A GREAT CRUISE HOLIDAY
• Sign up for shore excursions in advance: Some fill up before departure so, if you have your heart set on something in particular, book as soon as you can.
• Plan a solo shore activity: Some destinations are better suited to independent exploration. If you like to swim and snorkel, pack a mask, flippers, and reef shoes.
• Think ahead to make your stay onboard stress-free: Bring anti-seasickness medication in case the waters become choppy and a lanyard to hold your room card.
• Pack for any occasion: Check if your ship is holding any special theme nights before you leave and pack an appropriate dress-up outfit so you can join in the fun.
