Why Buy This eBook

If you have never been on a cruise before, you are likely to have so many questions that you have in your mind. I know as Valeria and I have been in this situation, before we went on our first ever cruise with P&O from Southampton, UK, to Western Europe, and then on a cruise from Miami, USA, to the Caribbean with Royal Caribbean.

The types of questions that we had and that you might also be asking include:

  • How do I choose a cruise given that there are so many locations, cruise ship sizes, and options? How do I get started?
  • What type of cabin should I book and what is normally in the cabins?
  • What type of activities and things can I need when on a cruise ship?
  • How does eating and getting meals work when onboard a cruise ship?
  • Is it easy or hard to get onto the ship on the first day?
  • What type of cruises are there and should I do an ocean cruise or a river cruise?
  • What types of entertainment can I expect if I book a cruise?
  • Is everything included in a cruise such as drinks, food, excursions, and activities?

This book is for you if you are NEW to cruise travel and really want to get a better idea of what to expect.
