Just as there is no such thing as a perfect vacation, a flawless cruise is an unrealistic expectation. Every officer and staff member on your ship has the same goal: to meet passenger expectations and provide a safe and satisfying voyage. The more you know as a passenger, the better you will be prepared.
All cruises come to an end eventually and it hardly seems fair that you have to leave when it feels like your vacation has just begun—days on a cruise fly by!
Your debarkation process actually begins the day before you arrive at your ship's homeport. Sometime during that day your cabin steward delivers special luggage tags to your stateroom, along with Customs forms and instructions. Be organized and avoid a lot of last-minute anxiety.
