I spent my spring break in the Bahamas on another great cruise vacation, soaking up the sun and getting a much-needed break from work and worries. Assuming that hair conditioner would be provided along with other toiletries in our cabin, I did pack any; after paying $12 for a bottle of Pantene conditioner in the onboard shop, I will not make that mistake again. Here are a few other things I have learned from cruising.
10.The days leading up to the cruise go by much more slowly than the days spent on the ship.
9. Bring half the amount of clothes and twice the amount of money you think you will need.
8. Don’t scrimp on shore excursions. Some are better than others but the amazing ones more than make up for all the rest.
7. Nothing tastes better than an ice cold local beer at the beach.
6. Avoid the local rum. It packs a wallop.
5. Wear your bathing suit with pride. Everyone else is too worried about what they look like in theirs to actually pay any attention to you.
4. If you are having medical symptoms of any kind, see a doctor BEFORE you board the ship.
3. It’s okay to skip the evening entertainment and go to bed early.
2. You can eat anything you want; you just can’t eat as MUCH as you want.
1. Shipboard romances rarely end well.
What is the number one lesson you have learned from your travels?
