8 Things I Learned on My First Cruiseby Kayla Becker | February 10, 2016
7. Sit back and relax — you don’t have to plan much.
This is definitely a vacation for the easygoing. It’s hard to see the downside of waking up in a new port each day without the hassle of planning how to get there — and what a relief it was not to have to book hotels, find restaurants, and coordinate itineraries.
8. The cruising experience is what you make of it.
The beauty of cruising is that you control the type of day you have, from quiet to active. If you prefer to sleep in and lounge at the pool, you can. But if you want to work out, get a facial, and attend a Broadway-style performance, that’s an option, too. Your schedule on board is totally flexible.
