How to Cruise with Ease

We're back for another edition of the Wanderlust series!!! There is no greater feeling than packing a bag and jumping on a boat for a couple of days. Its something about the isolation of disconnecting from land and country to explore the seas! However, there are a few things that we must remember to ensure that our trip is fun and safe!

Passport or Birth Certificate | First things first, (you know the rest!) have a passport or birth certificate is necessary because nine times out of ten, you are leaving the country. If you don't have a passport, the Department of State has step by step instructions on how to do so here. It would be wise to double check the country/territory you are visit for more information on what is needed.

Pack Lightly | The greatest part about the cruise life is that you can be a minimalist. Think flowy coverups and bath suits with one or two nice outfits for dinner (depending on the length of the trip). And sandals are acceptable with all outfits.

The More the Merrier | Usually, having more people in your party is not the best way travel but with a cruise it...is...a....must. There are so many things to do and you aren't going to want to do them with all of the same people so bring your own team and switch up your plans. Another great idea, make friends with people on the ship. You will most likely see them around, frequently.

Plan Ahead | Planning ahead can save a lot of time and money. You can find discounted activities while you are purchasing your cruise tickets on and off the ship. It is easier added to your itenirary so your schedule is set as soon as you are on board.

Cruising to new places is a great way to experience various cultures through food, music, performances, and more.  Tell me your favorite ways to cruise around the world in the comments below or on Twitter @anajanetheblog! #BonVoyage
