7 Things All First Time Cruisers Need to Know

Cruising offers one of the ‘best bang for your buck’ vacation options: multiple destinations in short order, fabulous scenery, excellent dining and a host of leisure opportunities. But as any experienced cruiser will tell you, there is a certain level of detailed planning involved – from packing to touring to dining that is required to really get the most out of your vacation. If you’re a first time cruiser, skip the learning curve and plan your cruise like you’re a seasoned pro.

1. Choose Your Cabin Wisely

Spend some time weighing your options when you choose your cabin. Think about life without a window for a week or more. Could you do it, or should you splurge for the ocean view? Are you a light sleeper, or bothered by noise? Consider who or what might be above you. Try not to have a cabin beneath a pool or a dining room, where there will be heavy traffic. Being close to the ship atrium or near an elevator will mean high traffic and more noise too.
