The day is finally here! Your ship has arrived and it's time to head for the port. You should be able to cruise through embarkation day, right? While embarking on your cruise is something people look forward to for months, it can also be a little stressful. Last minute packing, transportation snafus, unexpected issues, and long lines can turn an exciting day into chaos. If you are anything like my husband, all you'll want to do once you are in your stateroom is take a nap (and yes, I bugged him about shoes on the bed). → However, there are some things you can do in advance to make your sail-away day more enjoyable and less tiring. It just requires a bit of planning, being prepared, and a good sense of how embarkation day works!
