Judy’s Cruise Wisdom: The Value of Arriving a Day Early

Hello, fellow travelers! Judy here from Twin Palms World Travel, ready to share another golden nugget of cruise wisdom that I always pass along to my clients. Today, let's talk about the importance of flying in a day before your cruise - a simple decision that can make a world of difference.

Why Arriving Early Makes Sense

  1. Eliminating the Stress of Delays: The idea might initially seem like an added expense, but let's delve into why it’s a strategic move. We all know the unpredictability of flights – delays are a common occurrence. If you're scheduled to fly on the same day your cruise sets sail, any delay could mean watching your ship leave without you. And trust me, cruise ships have strict departure times.

  2. Peace of Mind is Priceless: By flying in a day early, you're buying peace of mind. Imagine sleeping in a comfortable hotel room, knowing that you're already in the city where your cruise departs. No frantic rushes to the port, no nail-biting close calls. Just a relaxed start to what should be a relaxing vacation.

  3. Enjoy a Mini-Pre-Cruise Vacation: This also gives you a chance to explore the departure city. Most cruise ports are in beautiful locations with plenty to see and do. So, think of it as a bonus mini-vacation before your actual cruise begins!

A Small Investment for a Stress-Free Start

Yes, there's the cost of a hotel room to consider. But weigh that against the risk and potential cost of missing your cruise entirely. In the grand scheme, it's a small price to pay for the assurance that you'll be on board your ship, sipping a welcome drink instead of scrambling to make last-minute arrangements.

At Twin Palms World Travel, I always emphasize the importance of starting your vacation on the right foot. And sometimes, the right foot means stepping into a hotel room the day before your cruise.
