Besides air travel and road trips, cruising can be the best when it comes to experiencing an “enhanced” form of travel. It is actually a pretty fun way to transport into a new destination because you get to enjoy the mesmerizing views of the ocean as you roam free in this giant space, while also having access to join in many activities.
However, there are many people who hate traveling on the big ships due to a horrible experience that might have ruined their first time.
But just like any other form of traveling, you can whether have an amazing journey or a horrible one that makes you hate traveling, all that you need to do is to have enough expectations, and be prepared for each one.
The most important thing to do, however, is to avoid making any bad decisions. There are many decisions that may not look as bad, but they may lead you to have one of the worst cruise experiences.
Booking at the same-day flight
Obviously, you want to have more time exploring the new city and less time on the road. So, you try to minimize the time by booking the flight the same day the big ship will be pushing off.
This trick is done mostly by those who are having a business trip, so they do their best not to be late to avoid any unwanted argument with their bosses.
The thing is you may end up losing tons of time and money if your flight got delayed, which is very possible. Or, what if your checked luggage didn’t make it to the airport at the same time as you?
It is important to arrive one day before the cruise departure to guarantee the trip. Book a hotel that’s near the embarkation point and spend that entire day having fun, chilling and sightseeing.
