All About Cruises


Cruise Options: Cruising A La Carte
You have a choice. If you want just a Cruise, you can do that. If you need Air Travel and Transfers to the Ship, you can do that too. Maybe you want a night or two Hotel Stay before or after the Cruise to enjoy the local Sites, well, you can do that too. All in One Easy Package. It’s all up to you.

Pre & Post Tours:
An added bonus

On most Cruises you can purchase a Pre or Post Cruise Tour Packages. These Tours feature many of the Local Sites and Attractions your departing City has to offer, usually at a discounted rate. These Packages can include Attractions, Sites, Hotel Stays, Car Rentals, Guided Tours and Transfers. All can be added to your Cruise Package.

Shore Excursions:
During your Cruise

While on your Cruise you may want to take advantage of some of the Shore Excursions offered by your Cruise Ship. They can range from Local Attractions, to Scenic Tours, to Water Sports Activities and more. These Excursions can be purchased prior to your sailing or can be purchased while on board and added to your On Board Charge Account. These Excursions may be limited so you may want to book them in advance.

Pre registration:
Be at the Head of Line for a Change

If you plan ahead, you can pre register for your Cruise. With all the new Security Measures in place, all Cruise Lines are required to complete a thorough Check in Procedure which can be time consuming. You can expedite this process by registering On Line. You just go On Line and complete the form. When you do check in, the Cruise Company already has the Information they require. It’s as easy as that.

It can be a Great Idea

Cruise Lines have strict Cancellation Policies. For a nominal fee you can protect your Vacation Investment by purchasing Cancellation Insurance. If you have to cancel your Cruise, you will be reimbursed for the cost of your Cruise minus the cost of the Insurance. It really is a good idea.

Is usually included

Most Cruise Lines add a daily gratuity charge to your On Board Charge Account. It can range from about $7.00 to $10.00 per day for each Person in your Cabin. It is another added convenience you won’t have to worry about. If you prefer to add your own gratuity you can also arrange to do so with the Ship’s Purser on board.

Sea Sickness:
What you can do

If it is your first Cruise you may want to consult your Doctor and get a prescription for motion sickness. Most people don’t realize they have Motion Sickness until they are on the Ship. It’s a good precaution to take.

Playing it safe

While on shore, keep your Passport and ID out of sight. Do not carry large amounts of cash on your person. Make sure you secure your valuables safely with in your cabin. Be smart and enjoy your Voyage.

Black Tie or Casual

You may want to familiarize yourself with the dress code policies of the Cruise Lines. Some do require a more Formal Dress Attire at Dinner while some allow a more Casual Dress. It’s all your preference.

Know where you’re going

Summer here, Winter there. Be aware of Climate Differences and pack appropriately. Also be aware of Current and Seasonal Weather Trends that may effect your Cruise.
