If you have never been on a cruise ship before there are some things you should be aware of before you make your booking. Of course, personal choice comes into everything, but here are a few pointers to hopefully make your first cruise a good one.
Check Out The Ship
Of course, you need to make sure you are happy with the shipping line you are booking with but you also need to check out the ship. Some of the older ships do not have so many facilities as the newer ones. This might not be a problem if it is relaxation you are after. However, if you want to be able to have lots of activities while aboard, you should probably opt for one of the later ones.
Most cruise lines refurbish their ships every 5 years or so. It is worth checking if this had been done to the ship you are considering, as they may have added more facilities at the same time.
Be Aware Of The Layout Before Booking Your Cabin
Cabins on ships are a bit like the rooms in hotels. The bigger they are and the better position they are in, the more they will cost you. The ones in the center of the ship, with no external views, are usually the cheapest but they also happen to be the best if you are likely to suffer from seasickness. It is in these cabins that any rocking caused by a rough sea is less felt.
If you are on any of the lower decks you could find yourself beneath a dance floor or the swimming pool. This can be good as it means you will not have to go far to reach them, but you have to be prepared for the noise they will create.
If you have the funds, a cabin with a private balcony can be ideal. Then you get to see all the views in the peace and quiet of your own room.
Whatever cabin you choose, check for any problems as soon as you get there. If there is a broken tap or no showerhead, tell a member of the crew straightaway. These things should be put right before the passengers board, and you do not want to be blamed for the damage. [Read more…] about First Time Cruising Tips!
