We’ve been selling cruise holidays for ten years now, which means our cruise experts have a wealth of helpful knowledge to share. With a combined total of over 100 different cruises, the Cruise Sale Finder team have travelled to all corners of the earth on a variety of cruise ship brands. We live the cruising life and love nothing more than sharing our experiences and best tips with our customers to ensure they have an epic time on their cruise holiday.
Sharing Is Caring
We got some of the team together from our Auckland and Melbourne offices to create a Cruise Tips YouTube Playlist full of interesting information about cruising. Whether you’re cruising for the first time, taking your kids for a family holiday or wanting to know more about the value of drinks packages - the team share their expert advice in this video series.
Expert Travel Advice
And because we want our customers to be in the know, we’ve added our best cruise tips below from a few of our cruise experts.
“Your cabin steward is the most important crew member on the cruise. Look after them, and they will help make your cruise a very memorable experience”. - Ryan, General Manager.
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! - Kirsty, Product & Operations Manager
Make sure to book early if you're wanting to take the family away over the school holidays you don't want to miss out and the ships fill up fast! - Alex, Cruise Specialist
Get to know the crew onboard your ship especially the Bar Staff. They are the people who know all the best places to visit in the ports of call and they will have lots of handy hints to help you spend your time wisely. - Amy, New Zealand Manager
Never ever ignore the daily newsletter which is delivered to your cabin the night before. This letter will provide you will all the information on what to expect on a daily basis, particularly the entertainment and activities. This way, you can maximise your onboard experience. - Mac, Team Leader
Cruise ship spas often offer discounts for first-day and port-day treatments. Stop by the spa, or check your daily newsletters to find out about deals. - Ben, Cruise Specialist.
If there is an option for dining time you should try and opt for the 2nd seating because many of the excursions won’t get you back in time for the early seating. - Marco, Cruise Specialist.
Before your trip, familiarize yourself with your cruise itinerary. You can ask us about what theme nights to expect onboard so you can bring along some awesome outfits with you. - Ahyie, Cruise Specialist.
