Seas the Day: Insider Tips for The First Things You Should Do Before You Set Sail!

Hey Sis,

So, you’re ready to set sail on your first cruise adventure? Get ready for an unforgettable journey filled with excitement, relaxation, and endless opportunities for fun! If you choose a cruiseline like Virgin Voyages, girl you are in for a treat! Virgin Voyages offers a plethora of options, but before you board that ship and embark on your maritime odyssey, let’s make sure you know exactly what to do to kickstart your cruise experience on the right note.

  1. Arrive Early and Check-In: Beat the rush by arriving at the cruise terminal early. Once there, check in with the cruise line’s staff to receive your boarding pass and keycard. This will expedite the embarkation process, allowing you to board the ship smoothly and swiftly.
  2. Participate in the Muster Drill: Safety is paramount at sea, which is why all passengers are required to participate in a mandatory safety drill known as the muster drill. This important briefing will familiarize you with emergency procedures and ensure that you and your fellow passengers are prepared for any unforeseen circumstances. Remember, safety first always!
  3. Explore the Ship: Once the muster drill is complete, it’s time to start exploring! Take a leisurely stroll around the ship to acquaint yourself with its layout and amenities. From the various dining options to the onboard entertainment venues, there’s so much to discover and enjoy. Take note of the locations of key areas like the dining rooms, lounges, and pool decks to plan your onboard activities.
  4. Settle into Your Stateroom: After your exploration session, head to your stateroom to unpack and get settled. Take a moment to appreciate the cozy comfort of your cabin and soak in the excitement of the journey ahead. Whether you have an interior room, oceanview cabin, or luxurious suite, make it your home away from home during your cruise.
  5. Grab a Drink and Relax: With everything unpacked and organized, it’s time to unwind and relax! Treat yourself to a refreshing beverage at one of the ship’s bars or lounges. Whether you prefer a classic cocktail, a tropical mocktail, or a chilled glass of champagne, there’s a drink to suit every taste. Sit back, relax, and toast to the beginning of your cruise adventure!

By following these essential first steps, you’ll be well on your way to a smooth and enjoyable cruise experience, no matter which cruise line you choose to sail with. So pack your bags, set your out-of-office message, and get ready to embark on the voyage of a lifetime!

Stay Magical,
