What is life without enjoying fruits of labor? Every man in his life sees himself taking a long, long rest from work that he probably hates and try to earn back those days of happiness which he had to throw away for the prospect of making more money. This is why the concept of vacations has been born. They take the burden of work off your shoulders, and you feel rejuvenated.
Can you see yourself sitting in a hot tub with the water lapping around you? Do you feel the tall champagne glass between your fingers? Do you feel the hot sun pouring over the Western sea as you ride in your cruise ship while the evening start twinkles at you with mirth? Well, at this time, you want nothing to disturb you, nothing to remind you of home.
So how can you have a marvelous cruise time without letting the usual worries about home start drifting through your mind? How do you stop worrying about having locked the doors properly or not? How do you stop worrying about your pet? Well it helps to stay prepared from before, and this is how you do it:
It will be of great help if you take some extra money with you. Even though many of the cruise ships have ATM, still you cannot take the risk. You will need the extra bills to pay the tips. A person spends about $10 for tips every day in cruise, but it is more of a personal decision. Remember, you are already charged a 15% gratuity for alcoholic beverages.
Always make a list of the items that are necessary for your cruise trips and make sure that you pack them in quite early. Always research on the net about the weather conditions during your cruise trip.
Most importantly remember to take your essential documents. Do not forget your visa, passport and passage contract. You need to keep your traveling insurance policies and legal custody documents if you are still a minor traveling without parents. You should carry these all in a small bag that is easy to locate.
Carry an extra suitcase with you. You are bound to hit the local shops of all the places where you will stop, and you will need to carry the things you buy in something.
It is better to carry some medicines as well. You may suffer from stomach aches, or worse- seasickness. How can you enjoy your cruise while you stay cooped in your cabin for the whole day? Carry proper medications to stay well.
Many cruise ships have a grand formal occasion planned, so you will need to pack in a formal wear too. For men, tuxedoes are the option, while women can get really elegant dresses of any vibrant color!
If you are a little worried about your health conditions, you can ask your personal physician about the specific itinerary that you have chosen. you can also call up your cruise line and get them to fix a proper dietary condition for you, and other medical situations like pregnancy or extra oxygen needs etc.
It is also necessary it ensure that your house is safe enough you can leave the lights switched on in the main room so that the burglars think that your place is occupied. Let your neighbors know that you are leaving and they will be on the watch. Moreover, stop newspaper deliveries. When they start to pile at the doorway, people will know easily that you are not home.
These few pointers will help you to have a marvelous cruise trip. That is why you should follow them to the boots!
