Luxury Cruising Tips

All-inclusive cruising at it’s best.

My wonderful friend Becky Lukovic of Bella Travel Planning recently posted her cruise tips for terrific cruising on large-ship lines. (She’s in Alaska right now!) Of course, because they’re a little different, I sent her my personal cruise tips for ultra-lux lines. Ultra lux cruises generally feature smaller ships, fewer passengers, fares inclusive of food, drinks, and tips (and sometimes excursions), larger cabins (suites), butlers, and spas. Alas, no water slides. (Seabourn is my favorite, of course! Who doesn’t love all inclusive Champagne and caviar?!)

Of course, one tip I forgot to mention? If you book an Ultra-Lux cruise line — or most any river cruise line — make sure you use a travel agent. Not only can they get you the best deals, and easily handle any problems with the cruise line, but you can get extra perks if they’re affiliated with a group like Vituoso. On the Seaborne, Virtuoso passengers has special shore excursions with private guides and lunch, as well as Virtuoso cruise hosts on board to make everyone feel welcome. (You get extra ship board credit you for booking Virtuoso — great for the spa!)

(Disclaimer: I’m not a TA or affiliated with Virtuoso. Just a big fan of the custom and lux work travel agents do.)

So, here are my tips from Becky’s site. Enjoy!
