No help here. My family teases me because I am afraid to go on a cruise. I guess I've watched too many Poseidon and Titanic movies, LOL

I wonder if you meant to post on the NSBR thread. I'm not a help on cruise tips. I went with little kids and will not ever do that again! Plus I got sick.

I have cruised several times and each time enjoy it more. First I would suggest that if you can, definitely spring for an outside cabin with a deck. If you can, it's spendy but so worth it. We sat there every morning with our coffee and our friends who were also traveling with us. With that access to the outdoors you can freshen your cabin too for sleeping.

Secondly, I'd suggest because you are traveling with teens, get involved in some of the onboard games. Talk to your cruise line contact or your cabin steward for information. We participated in a scavenger hunt that was a hoot!

And finally, go to some of the entertainment offered in the main big hall. Often very entertaining, comedians, magicians, dancers etc. Cruising, loved it!

One more thing... diet before you go. There is phenomenal food nearly 24-7!

If you want a lot of great cruise tips I suggest you check out a cruise dedicated board.
I think Cruise Critic is the biggest one, there is also one called Cruise Mates and several others. Just put in those names or do a general cruise info search on Googgle.

Most of those boards will have separate areas that are set up for each Crruiseline and you can get some very specific information about the line you are going on. Also you'll find Info about things to do while on the cruise and what to pack and things to see in the different ports you are going to, etc.

I was hoping this was about stamping cruises!

I would live to go on a Tim Holtz cruise! I have a friend going on a Mike Strong cruise. That sounds fun too!
