Do a Good Research –Private ships can have some security issues and other loopholes, hence while making your cruise vacation plans, it is highly important to know everything about the cruise liner you’re traveling by. High tides and waves can be dangerous, hence monitor weather and climatic conditions yourself. Keep a weather report app and a map at your convenience so that you can make use of it when needed.

3. Read Instructions Carefully – Always listen to your ship attendant and other crew members who are there to ensure your safety. Do not leave kids unattended on the ship.
