Cruising’s A Good Value, But You Still Have To Pay For Some Things

by Steve Dasseos on February 11, 2008

The reasons I think cruising is a good value are:

– You get lodging and meals as part of the total cost
– You get to go somewhere (actually a few different places)
– You get to relax without having to find a place to relax (like on deck) while enroute to your next port

However, this doesn’t mean everything is free once you get on the ship. For example, the staff aren’t quite having the same relaxing experience you’re having. After all, it’s their job. Even though they get to “see the world”, they still are working. And it’s not a 9 to 5 job either. It’s a fairly difficult job.

So, if you’re tempted to complain about having to pay extra for tips and other “add-ons”, don’t go there. Personally, we prefer to tip extra to anyone who’s helpful to us. It’s our way of giving more “foreign aid” to the people directly and we enjoy blessing others when we can.

I hope this makes sense. If you want the right travel insurance advice, call us at 1-888-407-3854 and we'll help you figure it all out.
