River Cruise Travel Tips for First Time Cruisers
Fly Comfortable Business Class
Yes, it does cost more to fly business class, but you will have room for your legs and larger comfortable seats. Some airlines offer economy plus or economy extra. These and similar programs are not as pricey as business class but certainly offer more comfort than economy for your long flight. Your vacation begins when you sit down on your flight. Don’t arrive with cramped legs, back spasms, and a headache. Comfortable airfare should be part of your budget.
Overpacking is a common mistake. Choose items to pack that can serve a double purpose and can be hand-washed. Quick drying fabrics are popular for traveling and can reduce the amount of clothing you need. You’re not going to a fashion show, and you want to bring clothes that are comfortable and practical. You will be walking on cobbled streets in many areas, so bring comfortable shoes. Don’t bring anything you can do without.
Passports and Documents
It’s important to have at least six-month’s validity in your passport. Many countries want to see that your passport is not any closer than that to the expiration date. If you need visas, be sure those are also in order.
