10 CRUIS­ING TIPS

DNA Magazine - - TRAVEL -

1. To safe­guard your gay cruis­ing ad­ven­ture, take out travel in­sur­ance. No one wants to end up in hospi­tal in a for­eign coun­try unin­sured.

2. Bring rock shoes to avoid lac­er­a­tions to the feet, and pack your own beach towel, even though linen and a towel is pro­vided.

3. Dou­ble check that your adapter fits Euro­pean power points.

4. Bring your own mu­sic or iPod as the days are long at sea.

5. Pack your own toi­letries such as sham­poo, body wash, tooth­paste, sun­screen and mois­turis­ers.

6. Im­por­tantly, bring your own med­i­ca­tions. It may be dif­fi­cult to ac­cess a phar­macy on many of the is­lands, es­pe­cially with­out a Croa­t­ian doc­tors’ script.

7. Bring cash-in-hand. It can be hard to lo­cate ATMs or EFT­POS on many of th­ese is­lands.

8. Lug­gage should be light and soft to en­sure it is easy to stow away.

9. Definitely bring un­der­wa­ter cam­eras and Go-Pros to doc­u­ment your ad­ven­tures.

10. Many of my ship­mates brought their na­tional flags, which were hoisted to the yacht.
