What mistakes did you make as a newbie cruiser?

Jump to last reply

Come on, fess up :) I remember two. It was before discovering Fodor's and Cruise Critic.

1) Buying something in a gift shop I tried to pay cash. I had no idea that all goes on the statement.

2) A friend who sailed on the same ship, same route, told me they don't have herbal tea on that ship, only coffee and iced tea, so I brought some packets.
