While preparing for an upcoming trip, we found ourselves reflecting on the first time we ever went on a cruise. And that got us thinking about what we’ve learned since… and what we wish we’d known then! So we figured, why not pass along a few tips to those who are planning their very first sailing? If you have tips you want to pass along, hit the comment section and share them. Eventually, we’ll have created the ultimate guide for first-time cruisers!
1. Don’t Get Overwhelmed
Planning that first trip can be a little big daunting. Because you’re spending a fair amount of money on the vacation, you’ll have an urge to spend a lot of time planning every aspect. And while there are definitely things you want to research – such as the port excursions that are available and what specialty restaurants you might want to make a reservation in – it’s important to make sure you don’t over plan. Leave yourself time to just kick back, relax, and enjoy the view!
