Hi everyone
I rather impulsively booked a 11 night med cruise!
I have never cruised before -anywhere. We usually holiday in Florida but fancied a change and a grabbed what I think is a pretty good price.
So please tell me where to start...

What do I need to plan and book in advance?

What should I expect?

What am I likely to spend on board?

Thank u all :confused3

Hey Wendy :wave:
I would suggest going to your cruise meet thread for your sail date and starting there. See link for cruise meets at the top of the main page.

Expenses on board all depend upon you and what you can afford. You will need to budget in tips and there is a recommended amount for that (see FAQ thread above on main page). Alcohol is extra and excursions are extra. People on your cruise meet thread will most likely have ideas for saving money on excursions.

Good luck!!:goodvibes

Is your cruise this summer Wendy? If it is, you will be wanting to get started on your planning quickly.

Hope you were able to find your cruise meet thread:goodvibes

I've never cruised the Med so I don't have any tips specific to those ports but I'm sure plenty of people on your cruise meet thread can help.
