Your cruise is supposed to be an opportunity for you to simply sit back and relax. Rather than leaving anything up to chance, prepare for your cruise vacation and make the most of your time and money when you travel with tips on reducing stress from your friend and partner in travel, Bill Bailey.
Leave early and plan for delays – Even in cruising, you need to plan for delays along the way. From the moment you leave your house, you are on a time schedule until you are safely aboard and checked in on your ship. Don’t risk missing the boat, plan to leave early and allow for delays to reduce your stress.
Be sure you have a passport and that it is valid – There was a time not too long ago that a passport was not required in many ports of call in the Caribbean however, as security has been heightened throughout the world, passports or at least enhanced licenses have become imperative for any prepared cruiser. Don’t find yourself stranded aboard your ship, get out and see the worlds amazing ports and reduce your stress by getting your passport as soon as possible.
Reduce your luggage – The less time you have to wait for your luggage, the more time you will save and the more stress you can reduce. Don’t risk losing your luggage, if you can fit all you need into a carry on and a personal item, do so.
Try curbside check in – You can reduce the time spent waiting at the airport by using this service.
Pay attention to what your cruise directors tell you – During the last few minutes before you leave port, your cruise directors will ask you to participate in a muster drill. To ensure you know what to do in case of an emergency, pay attention, listen to details and know what you should do during an emergency.
Cruising is a great way to save on travel and just relax and explore the world. The more prepared you are the better your experience. Bill Bailey Travel wishes you all the best on your cruise vacation. Bon Voyage and enjoy your vacation.
