  • Just have lots of fun and don't do like I did and gain 5 pounds. LOL I did notice people carrying 12 pks of sodas when we were boarding so I guess that is a good idea if you drink a lot of them. Have a great time!!!

  • Thought of something else....get some nondrowsy Dramamine. I don't get seasick usually but on one of our Sea Days I got a little queasy. The meds they have available on the ship made me really sleepy so get the nondrowsy stuff just in case.

  • Don't let your suit case out of your site until you know that it is secure. My mother had a bunch of jewelry stolen from her on a cruise once. It was awful because she had real sentimental pieces in there like things from both of my grandmothers. I still want to cry thinking about it....

    NEVER NEVER NEVER TAKE YOUR MOST VALUEABLE THINGS WITH YOU ON A CRUISE WHY FLAUNT YOUR STUFF SO THAT LATER SOMEONE IS WATCHING YOU AND TAKE IT. AARRGG IT JUST MAKES ME MAD JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

  • Have fun and don't worry about gaining weight. When are you going to go on a cruise again? Probably not for a really long time. When can you go on a diet? Anytime. Just have fun and leave your worries behind.

  • Wow, I've never been on a cruise before, but I imagine plenty of sunscreen would be necessary.
    I like the advice of everyone else here.
    From the movies I've seen, don't trust any locals to take you on "special tours" or anything, especially the gorgeous guys or the poor, defenseless looking children and peasants.
    Also, don't trust any gorgeous guy who comes up to you and says he works for the CIA or for the government of another country and is at risk of being killed because "they" are onto him and he needs to exchange his currency for your currency, for which he will reward you for by giving you more than the going currency rate.
    Don't discuss any personal info where anyone might hear - your names, occupations, addresses, etc. It's amazing what is spoken about in casual conversations and then used for identity theft.
    Have fun!!!!
