It’s plan a cruise month this October 2017. Each week will have a different destination theme, week 2 is Americas & Caribbean, so please read on and discover Cruise Club UK’s top cruise tips, including staff top tips too.

For those who are yet to cruise it can be a challenge on where to start looking and what suits your needs. Here we aim to provide you with the best tips to get the most out of your dream cruise:

Check you’re not booking during American Spring Break, sailings and destinations will be full or school and college students wanting to party, party, party!

Good months to travel the Caribbean are March/April – weather is lovely and hot. Can be very humid, but your outside of the hurricane season (June to November)

With regards to hurricane season it’s hard to know when one will hit, but it is easier to guess where. The dividing line between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean is the most common path. The hardest hit Islands tend to be the Bahamas and the British Virgin Islands.

The southern Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are outside of the hurricane belt, and very beautiful

STAFF TOP DESTINATION TIPS:

Alaska – find out in advance what you want to get from your experience, is it wildlife spotting, whale watching, or maybe salmon fishing? This will help you decide what month to travel to get the best from your Alaskan dream cruise

Dunns river falls, Jamaica is a must do

If you want to see more islands, or more Southern Caribbean Islands you are best to fly to an island that offers the itinerary. ie: Barbados, San Juan

Sailing from Florida will have a minimum of one day at sea before getting to the Caribbean Islands.

Most cruise lines will have you disembark off the ship by 10am at the latest, whilst most flights to the UK won’t depart until 5pm. It’s definitely worth extending your stay after the cruise to avoid the all-day wait.

Caribbean sailings are much more laid back than sailing in Europe. The sail away is always good fun on top deck with the steel bands playing, really brings home that you are in the Caribbean

Air conditioning on ships always seems very cold after a day in the Caribbean heat, take a cardigan for the evenings!

Want a regional flight from the UK??? Most airlines will fly indirect, so why not make the most of the long flight and do a stay and cruise. Some of our most popular destinations include Las Vegas and Orlando.

Look for cruises with overnight in port or late departures, giving you more time to explore

7 night itineraries are destination heavy, if you want some quality days at sea to experience the ship look for 12-14 night itineraries

Spas are at their busiest on sea days, look out for discount deals on port days

Be prepared to leave your cabin early, even if your transfer is hours later – your cabin steward has to prepare for the next guest arriving by lunch time!

Holiday insurance is a must – whilst most ships have hospitals, doctors and nurses onboard medical bills can soon add up in case of illness or an accident

Most river cruises don’t feature a formal night, so leave your fancy clothes at home!

Sunbed policies vary between cruise lines, some have a 30 minute rule – leave unattended and your items will be removed from the bed and held for you

Research your port of calls, ie Ephesus and Olympia are best visited on an organised excursion, due to the long coach journey from the port, plus you get an experienced guide included

TOP TIPS:

Santorini has a great bus service which is cheap and makes it easy to explore. Rhodes town is very close to the port, easy for a wander round

If you have already visited a destination, try a secondary city. For example Barcelona – try a day trip to Sitges with its fabulous beach and street lined cafes

STAFF TOP DESTINATION TIP:

Kotor, Montenegro – The sail into the port is stunning, it takes about an hour from the Adriatic Sea through the fjord like surroundings. It’s definitely worth getting up early to witness. Once in the UNESCO town of Kotor explore the well preserved medival town.

WARNING: Spanish IVA (VAT) of 10% is charged while in Spanish ports or Spanish waters

And remember when sailing in EU waters you mobile data is now included at no extra cost!
