7 Tips For First-Time Cruisers

Have you ever been on a cruise?

I love cruises. My family and I started cruising in 2009, and since then we have been going every year. We started out with a short 3-day trip to the Bahamas from Miami on Norwegian Cruise Line and moved on to longer cruises on Carnival Cruise Line. To date, our longest cruise to date was a 8-day cruise to Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic, Curacao, and Aruba from Miami on Carnival.

Now, as of this month, we have taken our 11th cruise (10th with Carnival) and are officially OG Cruisers!!! To commemorate this travel milestone, I have created 7 tips for those who are planning to take their first cruise or who are curious about cruising as a travel option.
