If you want to see as much as possible on a single holiday, going on a cruise is one of the best ways to do this. Whether travelling in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, there are some dos and don’ts you need to keep in mind to get the most out of your holiday.
Don’t Eat At The Speciality Restaurants Always
Most of the cruise liners in operation now offer speciality restaurants in addition to the normal cuisine that is included as part of all-included packages. They usually feature cuisines from around the world and may even have been organised by a top chef. Although these are a nice treat, in order to keep to your budget you should avoid eating at these eateries every night.
Don’t Always Go On Shore Excursions
With cruises there is the temptation of booking as many shore excursions as you can because of the limited land time you have. However, if you are on a long cruise with a large number of stops, shore excursions can become a costly affair. Don’t be afraid to do some research and see if you could arrange an alternative to the travel agent-arranged excursions.
Don’t Book Services The Day You Book Your Cruise
Many of the top holidaymakers such as Planet Cruise offer a wide array of spa treatments such as pedicures, manicures, facials and massages and other services. There is no denying that these can add an extra level of luxury to a cruise, it will cost you a lot more money to book these kinds of services on the day you intend to make use of them.
In addition to this, you will have to wait in line. Therefore, try and book all or as many of these as possible before you depart on your cruise holiday. Take the time to research thoroughly what is available and book spaces for these things so you can make better use of your time for doing other activities.
