Shore Excursions

Planning Your Days Ashore: Research your ports of call and decide whether to book excursions through the cruise line or explore on your own. Remember to carry essentials like your cruise card, water, and a camera​​.

Health and Safety

Seasickness: If you’re worried about seasickness, choose a mid-ship cabin on a lower deck for more stability. Bring seasickness medication or try natural remedies like ginger​.
