Ocean Cruising with AMA Travel

We love cruising. And an ocean voyage is the perfect all-in-one vacation, especially for first-time cruisers. The ships are vast, the food and drink choices are plentiful, and the opportunities for fun and enrichment never end. Picture it: One day you’re surrounded by nothing but sparkling sea and blue skies, and the next you’re pulling into another beautiful port—St. Barts, Honolulu, Anchorage, Barcelona, Sydney.

Will I get seasick?

Today’s cruise ships, large and small, are very stable, steady vessels. Most people won’t notice any ocean movement. Only a gentle vibration from the engines. Though if you tend to suffer from motion sickness, your cruise staff can provide anti-nausea medicine and fresh green apples (our favourite natural remedy).

Is there Internet access on cruise ships?

Most cruise ships let you use the Internet through shared computer terminals or Wi-Fi on your personal device. However, Internet access is usually an extra expense, so keep your eye on the charges.

How do I get my cruise documents?

To get access to your cruise documents and print them off, cruise guests are asked to complete pre-immigration/guest information, which is done through the cruise line website. You’ll be asked to provide passport, emergency contact, and other personal information. Completing pre-immigration is also your opportunity to pre-book shore excursions and arrange dining plans. Your AMA cruise specialist will be happy to help you through the pre-immigration process.

What should I pack for my ocean cruise?

Your best bet is to pack clothing and accessories as if you were visiting a resort in your cruise’s destination. During the day (and whether you’re staying onboard or going ashore), most cruises are pretty casual. In the evening, dress codes vary depending on the occasion. For a cruise that offers specialty dinners or galas, a dark suit or cocktail dress is recommended: think “country club casual.” Also, save space and leave your hairdryer at home. Most cruise lines provide them in each stateoom.
