  6. Extend your trip: If the port of embarkation or disembarkation is on your bucket list, why not consider extending your cruise? Stay a few extra days before or after the trip to explore the area and make the most of your visit.
  7. Plan ahead while staying flexible: It’s always a good idea to book your cruises at least six months before the embarkation date. However, keep some flexibility in your plans, allowing room for adjustments and unexpected opportunities.
  8. Make new friends: Don’t spend too much time in your room. Go out and meet other people; you never know when you might encounter them again.
  9. Pack smartly: Pack a carry-on bag with essentials such as a swimsuit and an extra change of clothes. This will come in handy in case there are any delays in your luggage when you board your boat.
