reader-tip-720x360Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Jackie M., who sticks with the recent cruise theme (like last week’s reader tip) by saying:

“I read the weekly travel tips and wanted to add that not only is it best to book far away from dining venues, but make sure your cabin is not below one either. We had a beautiful cabin with a balcony for an 18 day cruise but unfortunately was below one of the restaurants and we could hear them cleaning and moving equipment long after they were closed.”

Another good one. Thanks, Jackie!

    I would like to add to booking a stateroom away from dining venues. There many other factors to consider such as a stateroom below or above lounges with music, showrooms, decks above a stateroom that the ship passengers walk or jog on, below pool areas on certain ships, and near the anchor. Many times it is best to make sure you have a stateroom above and below yours. It is wise to use an experienced travel professional that has first-hand knowledge of the ship you are booking.

    When my wife and I travel in Europe, we always make sure that we purchase snacks in a local store but we also like to get a store bag with their logo so that we look like locals in crowded cities and towns. Sometimes I purchase a local newspaper and carry it around under my arm, again like a local.
