The Biggest Mistakes Everyone Makes on Cruise Ships

Know before you go and have the best time of your life


No one can argue against taking a vacation. But when there is a chance to go on an all-inclusive trip where you can see dozens of locations without repacking even once, the argument for going on a cruise becomes stronger.[slideshow:102144]

cruise vacation can be considered an adventure because you are, for the most part, stranded on a ship at sea, or ocean, for days with no way of getting home. This is also what makes information of what not to do very important.

No one wants unpleasant surprises, such as finding out that “all-inclusive” doesn’t really mean that, once onboard. Also, it’s crucial that you’re aware of when to book the trip, how to sign up for excursion, what to pack, and what to expect. You may not get to see everything on the itinerary.

Spending several days on a boat, partying, drinking, eating massive amounts of food (but not necessarily gaining weight), and sunbathing is not guaranteed to be without faults. Things can go wrong; and some bad scenarios are more common than others.

Don’t take the risk of ruining what can be an unforgettable cruise.
