Tips for a Cruise
When packing for a cruise, you may think that you have got everything
figured out. It is very easy, however, when planning an extended vacation,
to easily forget the little things. You may remember to bring the extra
umbrella in case it rains while you are out sightseeing, but forget
your rain boots. There is a whole host of situations that you can encounter
during an extended stay on a cruise ship, so it is best to be prepared,
but not pack so much that you feel overwhelmed by your luggage. Here
are some key items that are very easily left out of a packing check
Did you remember extra batteries? Sure you have the camera, your travel
alarm clock, your electric razor, and your portable compact disc player,
but did you remember to bring extra batteries for all of those devices?
Chances are that you did not. Make sure that you have plenty of batteries
to support your electronics through the duration of your trip. You do
not want to find that perfect shot only to find that the flash on your
camera has died. If you are not sure that you have enough, pack more.
Did you bring enough medication for the whole trip? If you are on prescription
medication, it can become such a second nature, that you take it for
granted. Make sure you have an extra prescription packed in a separate
bag in case your luggage gets lost. Also, make sure you pack a bottle
before the day of your trip. You do not want to end up leaving your
medicine on the bathroom sink and then be stuck on a deserted island
with no pharmacy nearby and no way to get to the medication that you
Be sure to pack more than one bathing suit. You may want to alternate
if you are going to be aboard the cruise for several days. Give one
a day or two to dry while you wear another one. There is very little
in this world worse than trying to get into a wet bathing suit. Also
bring a couple of beach towels if you like larger ones. Much like hotels,
cruise ship towels are bath sized towels, and if you want to lounge
with them, you might want a larger towel on hand. Flip flops, sunglasses,
and plenty of sunscreen are also essentials if you plan on spending
a lot of time on deck.
Bring plenty of film and a notebook. While you want to enjoy your adventure,
as opposed to spending all of your time documenting it, you want to
be sure that you take plenty of pictures to show to your friends back
home, and it might be fun to keep a personal record of all of the exciting
things that you are doing, so that you have something to look back on
and not just remember what you saw, but how you felt. That kind of record
can be more valuable than any video or photo that you take.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
