Get the Best From Your Cruise Experience with Royal Caribbean’s Top 10 tipsLike2

Cruising is simply a more relaxing way to travel. By cutting out the hassle of airport security, transfers and planning your itinerary, Royal Caribbean International’s luxury ships mean you can enjoy a stress-free holiday to discover the world from the comfort of your room.

If you’re a first-time cruiser and whatever the length of your cruise, you can make the most of your trip aboard any of the ships, thanks to Royal Caribbean International’s crew who have put together the top 10 tips to make the most of your cruising experience.

  1. Try to arrive the day before ship leaves so you don’t feel frazzled and hurried.
  2. Don’t try to do everything or you will enjoy nothing. There is something happening constantly and you can quickly overwhelm yourself. Relax; if this is your first cruise, focus on the “highlights” they publish. They know those things will give most newbies a great vacation and it will allow you to get your bearings for the next one!
  3. Use the nursery on the ship when you have an infant this is a great way to get some one-on-one time with your partner and will certainly help in convincing your significant other to take a cruise.
  4. Unpack completely! The rooms are small but they have great storage space. Unpacking and keeping things in their place will make your room more relaxing. Also, bring something to store your dirty clothes or alternately store them in your suitcase. 
  5. Pre-purchase and pre-book everything you can via the Cruise Planner. This will mean less time wasted in lines while onboard and less stress. If you don’t manage to do this, make sure you reserve your dinners/shows when you board the ship. 
  6. For ladies, take a pashmina. It doesn’t take up much room in your suitcase and it comes in handy to keep you warm on the deck or at shows and to put over your head when it is windy. Sailing can be chilly at night. Or alternately, sweaters and jackets; embrace that layered look and make sure you carry something for warmth and something in case it rains.
  7. Explore the ship and don’t be shy to meet people from different places. Cruisers come from all around the world to experience life afloat. Find the unique things on your cruise ship that makes cruising more enjoyable; such as different foods that you normally would not try. Remember it is a vacation and just go with the flow.
  8. Backpacks: small backpackers or totes can be quite useful for carrying cameras, books sunscreen, water bottles and other items around the ship or in port.
  9. Don’t forget to check about foreign country and onboard roaming charges before you turn your phone on mid-cruise; if you bring a laptop or plan on accessing Wi-Fi, enquire about potentially hefty Internet usage rates onboard before logging on. Minimise charge use where possible or bring one charger for multiple units.
  10. And last but not least, when in doubt, always ask. The worst that can happen is that they say no.

    Never did the cruise bit but goodness I vibe with #1. Always arrive early. A day for a cruise, or 3-4 hours for flights. Just give yourself time. Allow for delays. Or for life to intervene. Feel relaxed and enjoy the cruise.

  • Have you ever thought of going to Madeira Island? It’s all on the blog. An adventure guide to Madeira Island and reasons why you should go! 🌴 
Link in bio!
  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
