What’s the tip?

  • Bring goggles (most cruises have saltwater pools)
  • Bring liquid bandages (to protect wounds from the saltwater)
  • Bring all your prescriptions with you
  • Bring a little travel backpack
  • Purchase packages (such as a soda or beverage pass)
  • Bring spray tan/self-tanner if you need it (no spray tan booths)
  • For Seasickness:
    • Book your cabin in the middle of the ship because it doesn’t rock as much (with a balcony or window if possible)
    • Bring medicines (little sticker for behind your ear, wristbands, dramamine)
