Departure Port Profiles

While cruising in itself is a wonderful vacation, just getting to the ship can be a trip in itself, particularly if the vessel is leaving from an interesting port. It is always smart to arrive at your embarkation port a few days early so that your boarding is not delayed by flights, so that you can get used to a time change and …one of the most important…to make sure that you have all of your luggage when you begin your cruise.
