I've traveled more than 100 ships from Alaska to Patagonia, from the Norwegian fjords to New Zealand. From the world's largest ship, the Oasis of the Seas, I traveled with many ships, from the Pacific Princess to the Love Ship series. The experience I acquired was reflected in the following lines. Here are the tricks of the ship's journey…
If the holiday is not for you to spend your days within the boundaries of a hotel or a single resort, and your favorite thing is to discover new places, you should definitely experience a cruise trip. Do not waste time on roads, collecting luggage continuously, weaving shuttles between hotels; The excitement of saying "Hello" to a new place every morning… For those who think, "I wonder how," I packed the gold rules you need to know before you travel to 10. Read it first, then you decide!
1) EAT WHAT YOU WANT
It's a swell appetite on ships. Sign a deal with yourself and accept your food, whatever you enjoy on holiday; When you return, promise to enter a strict diet. Because there are 5 teas, nighttime getaways, A to Z, the crazy buffets where everything is made from chocolate… Some boats have a 24-hour buffet. Some restaurants require extra admission fees. You can experience interesting themed evenings like "The Captain's farewell Dinner" and "Caribbean Night". Some vessels are implementing two different dinner layouts, 18.00 and 20.00. We don't like the early dinner in the nation, so you usually see the Turks in the second session on such ships.
2) BE PREPARED FOR EACH ACTIVITY

Types of ships
Everything you need in a 5-star holiday on land is also in floating hotels. They offer a wide range of services from the gym to the children's club, from the pool to the SPA, to the casino from the shops where you can shop for duty-free.
3) GO SUPPLYING
I'd say expand your imagination if you think it's the water you can get, and the more fun you have. The similarities between Broadway muses, bars with live music, open-air cinemas, theater performances are among your choices. There are even ships with Cirque du Soleil. Wave pools, ice skating rinks, climbing walls for those who love adrenaline and fun together… On some ships, special invitations (Formal Night) are required to attend with a dark suit. Jackets and ties may be necessary.
4) YOUR MARRIAGE IS THE CAPTAIN
Activities can also leave you with different memories during your holiday. Dance competitions, wine tastings, gemstone seminars, even religious rituals are organized. Maybe you can come across a church wedding.
5) TIP IMPORTANT, REMEMBER
Even if you don't have a tip, you need to get it on a cruise. Most ships have a direct 15 per cent tip for each drink. Some companies are adding an amount of $10 per day to your account as a tip.
6) DO NOT BE SURPRISED BY THE ACCOUNT
You will be given a "cruise card" or "boarding card" at the beginning of your journey. You need to use this card as your ID, credit card and room key. You can make your extra expenses on the ship with this card. Oh, careful. There is a risk of surprise your account when you do not leave your pocket cash! Think twice to avoid a loaded invoice at the end of the holiday…
7) COMMUNICATION IS EXPENSIVE
You can benefit from services such as Internet, telephone, electronic newspaper, but be aware that it is somewhat expensive.
8) MONEY FOR BALCONY
Rooms are charged according to the view and size. Windowless cabins are the most suitable ones. But both narrow and windowless these rooms are at risk for those with diseases such as claustrophobia and panic attacks. In front of rooms called "Popupprimaryaxis View-restricted landscape", there is usually a piece of either a lifeboat or a ship. If you think about sacrificing for a good holiday, take the money to the second plan and enjoy the rooms with a balcony. You can go further and stay in luxury cabins with a pool table or even a piano.
9) CAREFULLY SELECT CITY TOURS
Tours are sold on ships for destinations, but they are usually expensive. If you know a foreign language, I suggest you deal with a cabbie and make your own tour when you get down to the port. Before you travel, you can do the necessary research and go prepared by taking notes. Also, before you buy the trip, take a particular look at the ports that the ship suffered and the periods of stay in those ports. If the ordinary port towns are on the list and long-time left, you will both be disappointed and have a wasted time.
10) PLAN IMPORTANT
The programs on the ship, the ports and events to be frequed are left in your room like a daily newspaper. So you have seen the plan of the day after night.
