13-7By choosing a cruise you’re almost certainly guaranteed a wonderful vacation. Caribbean cruises are fantastic ways to explore magical islands, beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, fantastic food, among other things. However, there are steps you can take in order to ensure you get the utmost enjoyment from your relaxing cruise holiday. Let’s take a look at a few below.

1. Arrive the Night Before

By booking yourself a hotel near the port the night before you set sail, you’ll not only eliminate the usual holiday morning stress but also extend the length of your long awaited vacation. Many hotels located close to ports will offer free or discounted parking and shuttle services, so take this into consideration when selecting somewhere to stay.

13-6Having some time to unwind is a good thing. You may travel to any place you would like to be, where you could find peace and serenity, as well as having some fun and adventure. There are different tips you may consider in order to have a perfect weekend travel and leisure.

Know first where you would like to travel. Pick the best place where all your personal needs can be accommodated. If you want to have some relaxation, you can try staying in a hotel or even have a spa or a body massage.

If you are looking for a fun and extreme adventures, you may go to entertainment areas like amusement parks, have bungee-jumping or even try zip lining. If you are a nature lover, you may try to go to a place where there are waterfalls, beaches, underground caves, and rivers.

13-5A few years ago, my parents took a three-week vacation to Israel. They spent more than $6,000. I can’t remember the last time I spent that much money in three weeks; that amount could last me up to half a year on the road. When I asked them what they spent so much money on, their reply amounted to, “Travel isn’t cheap! Hotels, car rental, tours, and airfare all cost money!”

To me, that sums up the thinking I encounter every day. “I’d love to travel, but it’s just too expensive,” people say to me. “It costs a lot of money.”

But that’s because the travel we are exposed to costs a lot of money. The ads, TV commercials, and magazines all feature high-end vacations, resorts, and cruises—the kinds of operations that can afford advertising. But it’s possible to travel in comfort without spending a ton of money.

12-2The fear of travel is known as hodophobia. The phobia manifests itself in numerous ways, from a fear of traveling to new places to a near-inability to leave the house at all. Some people are afraid only of specific methods of transportation, such as planes or trains, while others fear all types of trips.

13-4There’s nothing like travel to cement a great relationship. Shared experiences, whether good (those sunset cocktails) or not so good (that crazy taxi driver) have the ability to take your friendship to the next level, from friends who brunch to people who know each other inside and out. However, because travel can be daunting and stressful at times, and everyone reacts differently, travel can sometimes mean disagreements with friends, or in the worst case falling out completely. I mean we’ve all had friends who’ve gone on a trip together and never spoken afterwards haven’t we? Not ideal.

For 2015 I’ve planned to travel more with my best friends, it’s like packing all the time we miss together (living all over the world will do that) into an intense couple of days that we’ll remember forever. I just got back from a trip with my best friend to Thailand, we had a great time! To make sure we get the best out of these holidays, I’ve learnt to apply a few little steps, so that our friendship is stronger after the trip rather than feeling like you need to have a holiday away from each other!

Understand what you both want from the trip…
