Travel and Cruise Basics
Facts, Advice and Tidbits of Info

An understanding of travel and cruise basics is the start of good preparation. And, good preparation of course will lead to a great experience. (See Guide below.)

You will quickly notice this website is not about making reservations or travel arrangements. Neither is this website about offering travel specials, cruise itineraries, reviews, and the like.

There is no need to add to an already plentiful supply of reservation type sites; or, sites that provide information you can get from any good travel and/or cruise agency.

It is because of the above statement that I require your assistance. Your participation will help to expand the knowledge base for all to benefit.

You write your content (short or long) with up to four (4) optional uploaded photos.

(Any length is acceptable for your content giving tips and advice. The preferred length for articles is a minimum of 400 words; but, it is not necessary.)

After submission, you will see a Thank You page. You can edit (change) anything you do not like about your contribution. You can also decide if you want notification of when your submission has been published. If you like, you can get notification of when others comment on it.

You will receive an Auto-confirm email (only if you ask by checking the box) telling you that your submission is accepted.

Once your submission is accepted, the program builds a new web page (the photos may not appear for up to 30 minutes).

You will receive a live link to the page. You get this live link in the Auto-confirm email mentioned above.

That is it. That’s how it works. See your article published on this website.

A Guide to Cruise Basics

The guide is a shortcut to some of the central information found on this website; as well as other sites that complement our information. Most of the information is in sections. These sections are important because the related materials help to develop a fuller understanding of the subject matter.

The left navigation menu shows (tier 2) pages that also link to related pages. Within each page you’ll find links to those related pages.

The right travel professional can save you a lot of reading time by providing you with much of the basic information necessary for your particular situation.

To prepare, there is no need to learn everything. You can save time by having a travel and cruise agent assist you. In addition, you avoid the risk of overlooking an important detail that could ruin your trip.
