Reasons to Cruise
As well as being one of the fastest growing sectors of travel, cruising is an easy way for Australians to get away from it all, and do something a little bit different.

There are many people who haven't experienced a cruise before for a variety of different reasons, whether it be concerns about seasickness to the idea of being stuck on a ship for a long time. However a lot of these concerns are misconceptions.

Our consultants are asked many different questions from first time cruises and this week we thought we would share some with you -



Why should I take a cruise holiday?
Cruising is excellent value because so much is included in the cruise price: your accommodations, excellent meals, pampering service, fun activities and lavish entertainment.

In between visiting exciting ports of call and discovering new destinations, you can lounge by the pool, enjoy spa treatments, work out, leave your kids to play in the supervised kid's centre, take in a lecture or class, or a host of other activities. And perhaps best of all, you only have to unpack once!

What's included in the cost of a cruise?
Your fare includes accommodations, all meals onboard ship (including 24-hour room service), onboard daytime activities, and on most ships, night-time entertainment including live stage shows. One reason cruising is good value is because you'll know what most of your holiday will cost before you go.

Generally your only extra expenses will be airfare, drinks (though these are sometimes included on luxury ships), optional shore excursions, and personal services such as spa treatments or hairstyling. Check the inclusions link on each vessel for specific information.



What if I get sea-sick?
Today's modern cruise ships are quite large and contain hi-tech stabilizing devices and advance weather notification processes. Motion discomfort tends to occur the first day at sea. Eat and play in moderation on that first day. The sumptuous feasts and exciting activities will still be there the next day.

In the unlikely event you experience motion discomfort, there are a number of over-the-counter solutions to ease your concerns. These include Bonine, Mecklizine, Dramamine, Transderm Scope Patches, and Seabands. Please consult with your physician or pharmacists before taking any medication. There are generally medical facilities onboard the vessels to assist with sea-sickness also.

Do I need a passport?
Depending on the cruise you take, you will probably need a passport. For all international cruises, you will need one, regardless of whether you plan on disembarking the ship at any of the ports, with a minimum of 6 months validity remaining.

Will I need a Visa?
Some countries do require visas to be obtained in advance, it is important to provide us with your passport details as your nationality can determine whether you do require a visa for these countries. This is one of the many reason why it's important to book with Australia's largest team of CLIA qualified consultants, here at Clean Cruising.
Will there be people like me?
Cruising has become so popular, and today's cruise ships are so advanced in what they offer and how they're designed, that you'll find all types of people aboard. Cruise ships don't cater to certain types of people - no more than a popular hotel or resort does.

More importantly, the newest ships are so well designed you can find many intimate places to relax or socialize. As a result, you can be as private or as sociable as you'd like.

On an average cruise holiday, we have senior citizens on anniversary cruises; first and second honeymooners; families with toddlers, tots and teens (who love the supervised kids activities); and single men and women who always seem to find each other. And, of course, lots of happy couples who are even happier on a cruise holiday.



Will I get bored on a cruise?
There's fun & enjoyments onboard for every family member: kids and teens have special events; adults have a huge range of activities, day and night. So the whole family can have a fine time. On a cruise you can do as much or as little as you like.

For many travellers, cruising is a stress-reducing way to travel, and lazy days at sea between ports of call are the perfect remedy for recharging your batteries. Let the Captain and Crew do the hard work for you!

What kind of entertainment & activities are there?
Entertainment onboard ranges from Broadway-style musicals to Vegas-style nightclub revues. There are theme cruises featuring Big Bands, jazz, sports and other celebrities, and guest chefs. Most [larger] ships have lavish facilities for passengers to enjoy a variety of pursuits.

For fitness buffs, glass-walled health centres and spas overlook the sea and offer the latest exercise equipment and treatments. Aerobics, Pilates, step, spinning and yoga classes are usually offered (sometimes for a slight fee). Some cruises offer outstanding guest lecturers and onboard learning experiences.



What should I pack?
First and foremost, dress for comfort. Daily life aboard ship and in ports of call is laid-back and casual. You are encouraged to wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable: sportswear, shorts, slacks, sundresses and so on. Warmer temperatures call for clothing made of lightweight, breathable fabrics. For cooler temperatures we suggest casual clothes that can be layered easily.

Footwear should include comfortable walking shoes for visits ashore and sandals or rubber-soled shoes for strolling on deck.

In the evening, ships vary as to dress. There are three types of "evenings" on board - casual, smart casual and formal. On casual nights, sport shirts and slacks are suggested for men; sundresses or pants for women. On smart casual nights, dresses and pantsuits for women; jackets and ties for men.

For formal nights, women should wear cocktail dresses; men should wear suits and ties or tuxedos (optional). But don't buy a tuxedo just for the trip. If you do want to dress to the nines, many ships offer tuxedo rental services.
