things to take note when going on a cruise holiday

Posted on July 07, 2008 by dorisch

Traveling to exotic locations on a luxury ship, catching sunrays, and breathing the salty breezes can renew and replenish anyone, no matter how shopworn from the cares of work. However, a cruise holiday requires planning in order to be the best it can be.

When scheduling your cruise holiday, you should be aware that there are off season and on season dates, and that you want to schedule your trip in the off season to get the best deal. What you may not know, however, is that cruise lines actually change prices a number of times throughout the year.

To travel lighter, find out about equipment that will be available on the ship. For instance, if the cruise line provides irons or hair dryers, you won’t need to pack yours. Also pack your own sample size shampoo, toothpaste, and other toiletries because these items will cost more in the gift shop. You may have access to laundry facilities on your cruise holiday, so you don’t have to take a huge amount of clothing. But make sure you find out first from the cruise liner so that you won’t end up with insufficient change of clothes. For those who bring your laptop, always check that you have enough ram installed on your computer.
