Hi everyone,

My husband and I are totally new to cruising, but it is something we've talked about doing for years now. Looks like we're finally going to do it this October and we need advise!

1. We want to have a balcony cabin-can anyone recommend the "best" deck to get it on?

2. Where is the best place to get insurance, and what type of coverage would you recommend?

3. Can anyone recommend shore excursions? I'm very interested in the Dolphin Encounter, Universal or Disney and deep sea fishing.

4. Can anyone point in the direction of the least expensive outlet to schedule our shore excursions through?

Thanks so much!

Tracy

Thanks again!

It is still hurricane season, but I wouldn't worry to much about it. Make sure you purchase travel insurance.

Have a great cruise!

Oooops, I didn't see your other questions.

Have your travel agent look for a cabin with larger than normal cabin size or balcony size. Generally, the higher that you are on the ship, the more mortion you might feel uf you hit rough seas, but the better the views.


For travel insurance read this article first.

You can find tons of shore excursion review of the ports you are visiting located at;

And there are a bunch of independent shore excursions located at;

Hope that helps. Have a great cruise.
