a little worried about getting wet feet...1st ever cruise pending

Jump to last reply

Cruises.....

Friends have ventured on these mammoth ocean liners and relatives have slipped onto the river boat cruises and all have survived...

We are a family that like the idea of independant travel and always 'shiyed' away from the cruise 'all in one' approach.

Yet with a (longingly saved for, eagerly awaited) Egypt/Europe holiday approaching soon (ok well over 12months away - so no bookings yet - so recommendations welcome!)

we are eager to hear comments from travellers who have taken a Nile cruise, Lake Nasser Cruise (or both), who have ventured through Italy or Turkey on boat and anywhere in between.

To give us some tips/hints on first time boardings.

Ie: is there such things 'sealegs' and how long does it take to get them, do you get them even on a river?

is a balcony room worth it?

best to not eat from the 'smorgasboard' to keep in better tummyhealth?

as you can see we have heard some 'interesting' stories from cruises.

feel free to enlighten us!!!
