Check Your Documents
Once your cruise is booked, your next step is to make sure all family members' passports and visas are valid and up-to-date. Print and bundle all reservations, itineraries, tickets and keep them safe and easily accessible.
What To Pack
Researching seasonal weather conditions and the ship's amenities and activities will help you pack accordingly. Bring everything from bathing suits to sneakers for all the activities you will enjoy with the family!
What To Wear
When it comes to what to wear, you can go with resort casual or get all-decked out and look your best – it's your call. That's the freedom of Freestyle Cruising.
Organize Your Luggage
Each guest is allowed two pieces of checked luggage—if traveling by air, be sure to check your airline's restrictions. Luggage should be clearly labeled with your name, address, and contact number.
Make a note of the two important arrival times on your itinerary—embarkation time and departure time. Avoid rushing when traveling (while checking-in and boarding) will reduce stress for the entire family.
Now kick off your cruise vacation and enjoy the best family vacation ever!
