Is anything more luxurious than taking a cruise holiday?
 
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. Check out these tips to
 
have a cruise experience you will remember. 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. Ask and find out when their
 
absolute lowest season prices are. In addition, keep
 
your plans somewhat flexible so that you can change
 
ships at the last minute. Sometimes a ship is not filled
 
to capacity, so the cruise line will sell the last few
 
tickets at a real bargain. It is always to their
 
advantage to sail filled to capacity because people on
 
holiday spend money on souvenirs, drinks, etc. Use this
 
knowledge to get a really great deal. To be safe on a
 
cruise holiday, don't take a lot of expensive equipment
 
or jewellery with you. Make sure your passport, health
 
insurance, and other papers are up to date. Be sure to
 
ask about laws you may inadvertently be breaking when
 
you get off the shore you are accustomed to. Laws in
 
ports and even in the water can vary, and you sure don't
 
want a big hassle with a foreign law enforcement agency.
 
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 should have access
 
to laundry facilities on your cruise holiday, so you
 
don't have to take a huge amount of clothing. Pick a
 
wrinkle proof lightweight outfit for every two or three
 
days and pick separates in colors that coordinate so you
 
can get different looks. Be sure to pack a formal and or
 
semi-formal outfit if you will be taking part in these
 
sort of activities on your cruise holiday.
