Taking a vacation cruise is a one-of-a-kind
experience. Even people who take cruises often consider each one different,
with new locales and destinations, different boats, and different activities
and experiences on board. It's a great idea to preserve your memories
of each trip in a special way so you can get the most out of your vacation
by remembering it for years to come. There are a few small things you
can do along the way to make this process simpler when you get back
to dry land.
Don't be shy about taking pictures! Some people avoid doing this because
they feel it makes them look too 'touristy.' But all of your fellow
passengers are tourists, and it's the staff is certainly used to tourists.
So if the kids get involved in a dance contest, or the chandelier in
the dining room is fabulous, feel free to snap a picture. If you catch
them at the right times, the crew in uniform is usually very open and
willing to get into a picture with you. Ask nicely when they're not
busy, and get a great shot of the captain or a crewmember in full regalia.
Get cheesy if you want to; ask a fellow passenger to take a photo of
you and your spouse waving by the side of the boat. My parents took
a cruise when they were first married, and their favorite snapshot from
the trip is one of my father pretending to throw my mother overboard.
Well, whatever floats your boat, as they say. Make it campy, make it
silly, make it romantic... just make it memorable.
Keep in mind that if you're planning on making a scrapbook or a memory
box of your trip later, the secret is to save, save, save! Maybe your
ticket stub doesn't look like much while you're on the boat, but years
later you will love to see it. Your room reservation holds valuable
details that might just remind you someday that you had a western window
or a terrible cot that folded out of the wall. Ask the waiter for copies
of menus or carbons of your check so you can remember what you had at
that memorable first dinner on the water. Save your slips from the casino
if you decide to give your luck a try- it might make you cringe to remember
you lost $50 in bingo, but at least you'll remember it!
So enjoy your cruise. Make good memories, and preserve them. Steal the
soap if you must; but there are better souvenirs to be had. You just
have to look for them!

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.
