What Do You Know About Vacations
If you have any special food needs (if you’re on a strict fruit diet, for instance) or food allergies, it’s best to tell the cruise line in advance. These are things they need to know beforehand. 3. Review your paperwork. Make it a point that, in all of your cruise documents, your name is spelled right and it matches what’s on your ID; if there are discrepancies, your cruie line or travel agent should know ASAP. Your birth date should be correct, too. And while you’re at it, complete all required documents online or in the packet that your agent gave you. 4. Set a budget. Remember to include gratuities for the ship crew, as well as souvenirs for people back home and for yourself, of course. Also consider the amount of cash you must have on hand. 5. List down all your medications. Make sure your prescriptions are updated and that you’ll have adequate supply to pack for the entire trip. And grab some sunscreen while you’re at the drugstore. 6. Prepare your passport. You don’t want to go mad scrambling for your passport at the last minute prior to the cruise. 7. Make arrangements for those you will leave behind. Check in with babysitter, house sitter or kennel, ensuring they know when exactly you should be expected to be back. 8. Gather key items. Assign a spot in your house as a collection site for essential cruise items, like extra cell phone batteries, your camera and so on. Each time you remember something you need to bring, you’ll know where to put it. 9. Plan which credit card you’d like to bring. If you plan to use your credit card, advise the company that you will be traveling abroad and in which specific countries. Aside from a lost passport, you’ll surely hate getting your card flagged as a security risk too. 10. Double-check everything before making your way out. Simply put, check if you have everything you need, such as money, credit cards, paperwork, medicines, and so on. Put your office email in “out of office” mode. Give instructions to everyone who needs them, whether your staff or your children.
