Maximizing the Cruise Experience

If you’re looking for a great LDS cruise for you and your family’s next vacation, look no further than Cruise Lady. Our packages include all the options you need to find your perfect, affordable LDS vacation.

We’re not just here to provide you with a package, though. We want every minute of your cruise experience to be perfect, from the moment you step on the ship until the moment you step back off at home. With that in mind, here are a few tips from the professionals for maximizing your cruise.

Get There Early

There are multiple benefits to arriving the night before a set trip departure. Especially if you don’t live in that city, arriving early prevents any logistical issues – you do not want to be the one family that misses the boat due to traffic or delayed flights. Getting there the night before removes any of these jitters.

Plus, arriving a bit early might give you and the family some time to see a place you wouldn’t otherwise. Port cities will always have something fun for the whole family, and some hotels might even specialize in cruise-goers.

Plan Meals

Once you’re on the ship, plan out your meals at destinations. There will always be options to eat with the group at your various locations, but it can be fun to mix this up every now and then and get out into the native community. Make sure this is done within the rules of the program, of course.

Spa Pass

If your ship has spa capabilities, get to these early if you have interest. These services can fill up quickly, and some cruises may offer limited full-length passes. Just like other major elements, if this is a primary need of yours on the cruise, make sure you plan it out in advance.

Explore the Ship

You should rightly be focusing on some of the beautiful destinations you’ll be visiting, but don’t forget that you have an incredible area to explore right in front of you. Many people fall into a slow routine during ship days, but especially if you’re here with the family, why not take the kids on a little exploring? Leave no real or hypothetical stone unturned on this experience.
