Cruise Into Your Vacation From NYC: Easy Planning and on Board Travel Tips

By | Luxe New York City, Travel | No Comments

You’ve finally managed to get some time away from the office to book a much-needed cruise leaving from the Manhattan cruise terminal, and you have a lot of things to do before you leave. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of essentials you need to handle before you leave on your New York cruise.

Be Flexible With Your Dates, and Book Early

This is, admittedly, a little easier when you can take a vacation at your leisure and not when you have preset vacation days. However, if you can afford to be flexible with your vacation dates, try to leave on days when it would be cheaper to do so and book your tickets as soon as you possibly can. Many travel experts suggest that you book on Tuesdays, in the early afternoon, to get the best rates from the airline. If you wait until the last minute to book your tickets, they will be exorbitantly expensive.

Don’t Wait Until You Get On The Ship to Book Shore Excursions

If you’re looking to save some money — and make no mistake about it, cruises can be extremely expensive — plan for your shore excursions before you leave. If you wait until you’re sailing to book a shore excursion, it can cost a lot.

If You Have Dietary Restrictions, Alert the Cruise Ship Ahead of Time

Are you a vegetarian or a vegan? Do you require a gluten-free diet? Do you not eat pork due to religious reasons? These are all dietary restrictions that the cruise ship must take into account before it leaves the port; it can’t, and won’t, do so on the day you leave. You should communicate any dietary restrictions you have with the ship at least a few weeks before your trip starts.

Bring Enough to Sustain Yourself, But Don’t Overpack

It’s a good idea to bring all toiletries such as soaps and shampoos from home because it’s much less expensive than buying what you need on the cruise ship. However, be mindful not to over pack. If it can’t all fit into a carry-on suitcase, then it’s probably not worth taking. And don’t worry about running out of clothes; many cruise ships have laundry services on board.

Arrive in New York the Day Before Departure

You have a long day of traveling ahead of you on the first day of your NYC cruise. If you need to arrive in NYC from somewhere else, especially if you’re traveling from outside the state, make sure you get to NY the day before your boat is scheduled to leave. Your body, free of jet lag, will be grateful.

Use Luxe to Keep Your Car Safely and Securely Parked

Parking your car in NYC can be a huge expense, and there’s no guarantee your car will be kept safe. With Luxe, you can take comfort in knowing that your car will be safely and securely parked while you’re away on vacation. In addition to curbside service — where we’ll pick up your car right near the Manhattan Cruise Terminal for you — we also offer competitive parking rates and a convenient app that lets you pay for your parking securely. Learn more about our cruise parking packages today!
