    Tips for Improving Your Cruise Vacation

    Last updated 10 days ago

    When you book a luxury cruise, you expect to have an amazing vacation. Use the following tips to ensure that your next cruise gives you everything you need to sit back, relax, and really enjoy your escape from your daily life.

    Get there Early

    You should not feel stressed out before a vacation. Ask your travel agent to book your flight to the port city for the day before the cruise to ensure that you get there with plenty of time to make it to the boat before it leaves. This also gives you an extra day for your vacation so you can start getting into the relaxation mode before you even step onto the ship.

    Do Not Disembark

    Most people take advantage of stops in port cities by signing up for tour buses or other group activities. Unfortunately, the ship rarely docks for long enough so you can really enjoy these port cities. Most of the time, the tour buses are crowded and do not let you see the sights you really want to see. Instead of getting off the ship, consider staying on as your fellow passengers fight to see the main tourist attractions. Most of the amenities on the ship stay open so you can finally enjoy them without the crowds.

    Take Advantage of the Spa

    Check out the on-board spa to see if a massage or a facial can enhance your vacation. Some cruise ship spas even let you pay a certain fee for the day to use facilities like the steam room or the heated tile loungers.

    Staying Fit on a Cruise Vacation

    Last updated 17 days ago

    With all of the fine dining and lounging opportunities that you can find aboard a luxury cruise, it might be easy to let your normally healthy habits slip to the wayside. If you want to stay fit during your vacation, use the following tips to figure out how to bypass temptation and continue healthy habits.

    Use the Gym

    Most cruise ships have an on-board gym with at least basic weights and cardio equipment. Some cruises might even offer group classes where you can make some new friends as you keep your blood pumping. Taking some classes on the ship might even introduce you to a new form of exercise that you can continue to do when you get home.

    Explore the Ship

    Walking is a great form of exercise and you can rack up a lot of miles by just wandering around the ship in your free time. You might want to download a fitness app on your smart phone that tells you just how many steps you take throughout the course of the day as you check out all that the cruise has to offer.

    Watch Your Portions

    While you should not necessarily deny yourself from all of the treats onboard, you should try to enjoy them in moderation. Instead of eating an entire piece of cake, for example, share one with your travel buddy. If you are in the mood for alcohol, sip on a glass of red wine or a vodka soda instead of ordering a cocktail that is overloaded with sugar and calories. If there is a buffet on the ship, try to fill up your plate with mostly healthy options and just choose a few of the unhealthier ones.

    The travel agents at Brentwood Travel can help you plan a trip that allows you to stay fit. With our all-inclusive cruise deals and other travel tips, we make it easy to choose a vacation that will be fun and relaxing.
