1) EAT WHAT YOU WANT
Appetite swells on the ships. Sign a deal with yourself from the start and accept whatever you will enjoy on holiday; of course, promise to enter a strict diet. Because there are 5 teas, night getaways, crazy buffets where everything from A to Z is made only from chocolate … Some ships have a 24-hour buffet. Some restaurants may require an extra entrance fee. You can experience interesting themed evenings such as “Captain’s Farewell Dinner” and “Caribbean Night”.
2) PREPARE FOR EVERY ACTIVITY
Everything you need for a 5-star holiday on land is also available in floating hotels. They offer a wide range of services ranging from the gym to the children’s club, the pool to the SPA, the shops where you can shop from duty-free to the casino.
3) GO TO PREPARED
If you think you can have as much water as you can and how much fun you can have, I say expand your imagination. Broadway musicals, live music bars, open-air cinemas, theater shows. There are even ships that take their distinction one step further with their Cirque du Soleil shows. Wave pools, ice skating rinks, climbing walls for adrenaline and fun lovers together … Some ships are required to participate in dark suits with special invitations (Formal Night) is organized. Jacket and tie may be required.
4) DO NOT AMAZE THE ACCOUNT
At the beginning of your journey you are given a “cruise card” or “boarding card.. You need to use this card for identification, credit card and room key. You can make extra expenses on board with this card. Oh, beware; There is a risk that your account won’t come out when your cash is out of your pocket! Think twice to avoid a large bill at the end of the holiday …
5) COMMUNICATION EXPENSIVE
You can benefit from the services like internet, telephone, electronic newspaper, but be aware that it is a bit expensive.
6) SPEND MONEY FOR BALCONY
Rooms are charged according to the view and size. The windowless cabins inside are the most suitable. But these rooms, both narrow and windowless, are at risk for people with diseases such as claustrophobia and panic attacks. In front of the so-called Restricted Scenery, there is usually either a lifeboat or a piece of the ship. If you want to sacrifice a good holiday and put the money in the second place, enjoy rooms with balconies. You can go further and stay in luxurious cabins with a pool table or even a piano.
7) CAREFULLY SELECT CITY TOURS
Tours are sold on ships for your destination, but are usually expensive. If you know a foreign language, I suggest you take a tour with a taxi driver when you get to the harbor. You can make the necessary research and take notes before you travel. Also, before you buy the trip, check specifically for the ports the ship has visited and their length of stay at those ports. If ordinary port cities are listed and reserved for a long time, you will be disappointed and a waste of time.
