Whether with your family, a group of close friends, or your significant other, a good cruise usually has the makings of a great vacation. Apart from narrowing down the list of places you’d like to go to, there are still a number of things you can do to make the experience memorable for everyone involved.
Cruise Lady shares three tips that will help in creating a great cruise vacation.
Enjoy a Pre-Cruise Splurge
You do not have to wait till you are on board so you can start having fun. Splurge on a new formal outfit and a bathing suit. These outfits will give you something to show off and it is something extra for you to look forward to. Furthermore, everyone loves going shopping. Fly first class to your home port. You can even hire a limo to drive you and your partner to the port. This is a great way to kick start your cruise.
Arrange for a Cabin Surprise
Surprise your partner or the one you are sharing a cabin with a surprise. Have champagne delivered to the room or strawberries covered with chocolate. Arrange for her to find a fruit basket or flowers after a long day onshore. They will be grateful and this will create a memory for both of you.
Arrange for Fun In-Port Activities
If you are travelling in a group or with a partner find out what they have always wanted to do. It does not matter if they dream of swimming with the dolphins or they would love to go fishing. Arrange in advance to have their dreams come true. You can also do the same for yourself. If you have always dreamt of swimming with the dolphins, then make the arrangements so you can do it without the hassle. Remember: a little strategy can go a long way.
Some of these are inexpensive ways to make memories while some will require you to spend a little but it will all be worth it. You will remember the cruise till your old age days.
