A lot has changed from when we cruised prior to the cruise shutdown. As cruises start up, these are the things you need to be aware of and look out for. First time cruisers & cruise veterans need this updated cruise information.

The fact is, a lot of videos with cruise tips and advice are outdated, simply because of the changes in protocols as well as travel restrictions. Things to be aware of and plan for mean that much of the cruise tips and advice, whether you’re a first timer or pro cruiser, has changed. In this video I share 10 new cruise tips for cruising in 2021. Things will continue to change and evolve, however these cruise tips and information will help you navigate everything you need to plan for the perfect, stress-free cruise vacation.

Some of the things you need to know if you’re planning a cruise this summer from outside of the US especially, include making sure that you know the vaccine and testing protocols and rules. As this has changed from past pre-cruise planning, you’ll want to make sure you have the information for your specific cruise ship and cruise line. It can differ depending on if you’re cruising with Royal Caribbean or Norwegian Cruise Line. It will also be different depending on if you’re cruising from the Bahamas, St. Marteen or even the UK.

However, beyond this, we have some new cruise tips and hacks for planning a stress-free cruise. While some of these tips have changed from the past, planning and being ready for your cruise travels has not. In this video we go over the best tips for planning your flights, shore excursions and even if it’s a good idea to use a travel agent to help you to book and plan this cruise.
