Hey there, our travel guide told us there is an international law that cruise boats must be with in 30 miles of another ship while cruising open waters... is this true? If so where can I read about it? Thanks

If that was the law it would be difficult to comply with it. What if there wasn't another ship going your way? Would you be stuck in port? There are sea lanes where you typically do see other ships nearby but it isn't a law that I am aware of. Sea lanes have more to do with geography, topography, and long-established trade routes.

Svein would be the man with the answer to this!

When they start leaving the port, it's like a parade. Although they do have separation, it's more timed than distance. Princess will leave, then Carnival, then HAL, then Princess, then RCI, etc. It's so much fun to be in that parade!

Krissy&Craig,

What's to be scared of? Millions of passengers cruise safely every year. Be scared when you take your car on the highway, relax and enjoy every minute of your cruise experience. Nothing to be scared of.

Cheers, Neil

I'll try to put your mind at ease. It's probably the only worry free vacation you can take. The only decisions you have to make once you're on board, is what time to get up, what excursion you want to take, and what you're going to drink. It seems like they know what you are thinking, what you want, and what you need before you even know. Oh, probably the hardest decision you will have to make is what to eat. I solved that problem, I eat everything. Once you board, you truly don't have to think about anything. You can do as much or as little as you desire. Read your newsletter daily and find out what interests you. Of course, anything you miss, you can catch on your next cruise. Because I know after this one, you'll be hooked!
