(51) Before Committing to a Cruise

Regardless of whether you choose a local travel agency or an online cruise specialist, before you commit to booking a cruise:

  • Don't be pressured into making hasty travel decisions. Travel agents and cruise line sales representatives can usually hold cruise reservations for a short time to give you the chance to consider all options.
  • Read everything carefully…especially the fine print. Be sure you understand cruise cancellation policies and all restrictions and limitations.
  • Charge all cruise travel on a credit card. If a cruise agency does not accept credit cards go elsewhere.
  • Don't rely on verbal agreements and promises. If you are promised extra amenities, such as a cruise cabin upgrade or onboard credits, get these promises in writing
