Writing in a travel journal allows you to retrace, relive and share your cruise memories for years to come. Make sure you purchase a travel journal and start capturing your memories before you leave. Write an introduction for your cruise detailing the cruise preparations, expectations and excitement about the journey.
During the cruise and while in ports, keep your journal close so you can write down memorable moments when they happen on ship and shore. Record interesting facts and details that you hear and want to remember while touring specific areas. Use your five senses to help tell your story -- colorful adjectives describe what you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel and make your cruise journal come alive. Encourage family members to add comments to your journal entries. And don't forget about the people you meet along the way! Record funny or not so funny things that happen along the way. Your cruise journal could become a travel book!
