My Second-Best Cruise Tip

Bike ride through the Wachau Valley in Lower Austria

Most cruises offer some really incredible excursions (like this one/above). So you don’t miss out (the good excursions sell out fast!), sign up for them way in advance, even if you aren’t 100% sure you’re going to take them. Most cruise companies let you cancel later without penalty, which is why it’s always a great idea to double- and triple-check if you find a tour is unavailable (or to see if you can get on a waiting list). Just make sure to ask what the cancellation policy is first!

  1. I’m still not 100% convinced about cruise travel, but I do like these kind of activities!

  2. So you opened the door to another product, but didn’t tell us where to get it. The electric assist bike. I think you may have missed the boat on that one.

  3. I often book an excursion that can be cancelled and then compare with other sites like TripAdvisor and Cruisecrittic….. You can save thousands! Also on Alaska cruises look at the Entertainment book “Northern Lights” It has many 2 for 1 on Whale watching, Glacier flightseeing, and much more!
