It can be overwhelming!
If you’re a first time cruiser, planning the best Caribbean cruise for you can be overwhelming. So I thought I would write a to-do list to help you with the process. I love to make lists because I can see exactly what needs to be done and best of all, I can cross off each step as soon as it’s done and it feels good to visualize my progress.

I Would Recommend You
Leave Home the Day Before
Unless of course you live within driving distance from the port. Don’t “miss the boat” as you would have to make your own way to the first island the ship will visit, which could be very costly!
Work with a Travel Agent
To book your flights and cruise. It doesn’t cost more and we are covered by the Consumer Protection in case something happens. Use the internet to find a hotel offering the best price and location
And at Last…
Shopping – for clothes/shoes you might need
Medicine – make sure you have enough pills for the length of your cruise
Make a list – of what you will be packing
Laundry – make sure everything you want to bring is ready
Lay it all out – make piles on the bed of everything you need to bring
Divide – the piles into carry-on and suitcase
Travelling – hang the clothes you will be travelling with and declutter your purse
Pack – your suitcase and carry-on efficiently, roll most everything
