• Tips for cruising gracefully

    2011-12-28

    First time cruisers may not be sure about what is acceptable or expected while on a sea-faring vacation. However, there are a few basic guidelines that travelers can adhere to so everyone will experience smooth sailing on their getaway.

    Although each cruise is different, having common courtesy for fellow passengers will ensure that everyone stays pleasant and has a good time. According to MSNBC, doors that are slammed or loud shouts can often be heard throughout many of the rooms on a given floor, so being considerate of noise levels is advisable, especially at night.

    Proper deckwear and clothing is a good idea as well. Although comfort is important, travelers may wish to consider how they are dressing for the public areas and during dining times, in order to ensure a pleasant atmosphere while cruising.

    Tipping policies may want to be researched before embarking on a cruise as well, reports USA Today. Some passengers may feel comfortable giving service personnel tips in cash, while others may wish to use the ship’s tipping program that allows for credit card payments to the staff. Gratuities should be distributed for children passengers as well, who can sometimes leave messes, especially babies and small kids.
