Save Money and See the World with a Repositioning Cruise To save money and enjoy a more relaxing cruise experience, try a repositioning cruise.  Cruise lines will typically have their ships spend a season cruising the same itinerary.  During, say, the spring or fall, these ships will be relocated – or repositioned – to a new geographical area of the world to begin a new cruise season and n...

Avoid the Crowds at the Buffet on Embarkation Day ~ Enjoy a More Leisurely Lunch Those who have cruised before know what a popular place the ship's buffet is on embarkation day.  It's as though 3,000 cruisers arrive on board and haven't eaten in days.  Eager, hungry vacationers line up at the door, squirt the required antibacterial lotion into the palms of their hands, fill their plates, and search for the grand prize: a sea...

Got Hours to Kill Before Your Flight Home?  Don't Waste Them at the Airport. You had every intention of heading directly to the airport after the cruise, but the prime flights were sold out, leaving only the 8:00 pm flight.  Or maybe you chose this flight because it was the cheapest.  "What on earth will I do for 12 hours?" you ask.  Whatever you do, don't waste it sitting around at the airport.  Ther...
