My first cruise guide and recommendations

English Spanish

Travel documents, when will I receive them?

In general, travel documents are sent a week before departure by e-mail or post (except in last minute cruises)


Cruise clothing and wear

In most cruises is casual apparel and sportswear, except for luxury companies like Silversea, Radisson Seven Cruises, and so on. We advise you to wear comfortable shoes for sports, casual dress and several bathing suits. The cruises are not like yesteryear, yet there are codes of dress for dinners and parties on different occasions and activities:

Before leaving home, make sure you bring with you:

If you take medications, no matter what type, be sure to bring enough, as there is no drug on board .... And of course, do not forget your camera for taking pictures!!!!


Luggage and cruises, what should I know?

When you receive your travel documents you will find inside various tags for luggage. Complete them with your name, name of ship, cabin number, date and port of departure. We recommend writing in capital letters for easy reading. When you ship, a porter will take care of your bags.


Do i need a passport or visa in a cruise?

If you are European, just your ID or passport valid for travel by the European Union.
Otherwise, you must hold a passport with validity date six months after their return. Probably you would also need to travel with a visa.


What do I need to know about Cruise tipping?

The tradition is to tip in cruise ships. This however is not widespread in Europe, is widespread in the rest of the world, and helps ensure staff qualifications and level of services offered on board. In some cruise companies, tips can be paid in advance (as examples Pullmantur, Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Line). You have to calculate an average of 8 euros per person and day.


Can I park my car in my port before taking the cruise?

Most ports are equipped with long-stay parking fee (estimate about 9 euros per day) and you may pre-book a parking place, although there will be paid directly. Some ports only accept cash as payment.
