Book with a highly knowledgeable cruise specialist
The more your travel agent can tell you about your ship and the destinations it will be visiting, the better informed you’ll be when it comes to making decisions such as room choice, food packages, and day trips.
Insist on a balcony
A balcony gives you breathing space, fresh air, great views, lots of sunlight, a private outdoor area, and somewhere to call your own. Just be sure that small children don’t get the opportunity to climb.
Pinpoint the most convenient cabin location
Locate the areas of the ship where you believe you will be spending most of your time and then look for the closest room that suits your budget. If it’s an easy walk from your room to the pool area or dining room, you’ll spend less time having to wait for elevators.
Know when to book your flights
If you need to fly to your cruise departure point, book early, but not too early. Motto suggests the ideal time for booking flights is 45-60 days before departure. This changes if travelling during the school holidays or peak travel times, when booking early is essential.
