ReadytoPlanYourCruise? Planning a cruise vacation is rather easy. You can either visit their website or contact your personal travel agent. When planning your cruise, always remember to check your itinerary. Also check to see if your ship will be having any theme nights and how many formal nights you will need to pack extra clothing for. Even though your trip is paid for by the time you board the ship, remember to bring extra money for the ports and any excursions you would like to take. www.royalcaribbean.com After all the planning is complete and you board the ship, grab a chair by the pool and a signature Royal Caribbean cocktail…and RELAX!
