Favourite ship: Harmony of the Seas
Best cruise tip: Travel Insurance is highly recommended every time you travel both local and overseas. Odds are that you won’t need the travel insurance you buy, but when you do, it’s a lifesaver. It can cover a tons of different things, including if you get hurt or sick on your trip. It’s also handy if you lose your luggage or miss the ship and have to make alternate arrangements to meet your ship elsewhere or get back home, etc.
Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Best cruise tip: Check out which ports are famous for what souvenir so you don't purchase everything at the first port of call. Leave plenty of room in your suitcase for your shopping, or pack a carry bag to load with your purchases. The extra bag is also handy for any items you need to "declare" so you don't have to open your main suitcase!
Favourite ship: Golden Princess
Best cruise tip: Stay on board when you can. If you visit a port which you may not necessarily need to see, use this day to explore the many facilities on the ship. Port days are always very quiet on the ship, no queues, no crowds, no fuss. You can also scoop up some big discounts at the spa and salon!

Best cruise tip: If cruising with children, be sure to invest in a cabin that is spacious for all. Avoid bunk beds for kids under seven, instead try a cabin with a pull out sofa. And make sure your children take advantage of the awesome kids club facilities and entertainment that cruise ships have to offer.
Favourite ship: Symphony of the Seas
Best cruise tip: Don't overpack! It's best to check the cruiseline's FAQ (frequently asked questions) before you cruise so you know what you can and cannot bring, what you need to wear on theme nights (if there's any) and check if your cabin is already supplied with a robe and toiletries so you don't need to pack one. No time to do your research? Talk to a cruise specialist!
Favourite ship: Explorer of the Seas
Best cruise tip: Never ever ignore the Daily Newsletter which is given normally first thing in the morning to your cabin. Through this letter, you'll get all the information to expect on a daily basis especially the entertainment and activities onboard. This way, you can maximise the fare you've paid and get freebies in the end... and who knows, you might end up getting free drinks.
