April 17, 2009, Newsletter Issue #90: ( 82) Staying On the Ship in Port

Tip of the Week

If time, interest, physical condition or budget does not make ship excursions a choice for a day in port, donít worry. There is usually a local market near cruise ship ports and cruise lines offer shuttle bus transportation to and from shopping areas that are not within walking distance.

Staying onboard the ship when it is berthed in port is another option. When the crowds disembark for tours and explorations, the ship is yours. Pricey spa and salon treatments suddenly become affordable with port specials. Meals are served as usual. Thereís never a competition for the best poolside lounge chair. The crew staff offers games and movies play in the theater.

Even if you disembark for a short time, many cruisers prefer half day tours and return to the ship to relax and watch the non-stop activity in the harbor.
