Summer, the ultimate cruise season, is in full throttle now! We’ve no doubt that you want to embark in an adventure that will take you to some of the most exotic and beautiful beaches in the world. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind to fully enjoy your trip!

In this post, Up & Away Travel in Pembroke Pines will share with you a few tips, so you can make the most out of your cruise vacation.

Things to Keep in Mind when Going on a Cruise

Do Your Research

First, you need to do your homework! Research and get acquainted with the cruise (the amenities offered, the dress code, etc.) and the destinations you’ll be hitting (what the weather is like, the traditions, cuisine, among other things), so you’re ready for it all.

Make a Checklist

You’ll be traveling for a long time and to different places, which means there are a lot of things you need to take! Make a checklist with all your necessities and check it off as you pack to ensure you won’t forget anything.

Pack Everything Up

Now comes the tricky part: fitting everything in your suitcase! In order to help you out, here is a list of things you should pack:

- Take weather-appropriate wear
- Be sure to mix and match outfits if you’ll be gone a long time
- Check to see if there’s a laundry room on the ship
- Pack more than one bathing suit
- Leave some room for souvenirs
- Don’t forget your electronics and their chargers
- Take your meds, sunblock, and other toiletries
- Triple check to see if you have your passport, vaccination records, credit card and other essentials with you!

Ward Off Motion Sickness

The boat will be rocking back and forth, and unless you’re used to it, it’s probable that you’re going to get motion sickness. It’s probable that it’ll be slightly overpriced onboard so be prepared for it by bringing some over-the-counter medication.


Lastly, don’t forget to leave all your problems behind and bring your sense of adventure with you. We’re sure you deserve this vacation, so make the most of it!
