Our list of embarkation day don’ts
We’ve just returned from a terrific Carnival cruise, and we’ve seen first hand how cruising has changed. In this podcast we’ll talk about some of those changes, and what not to do if you want to enjoy that wonderful first day- embarkation day! Today, we’re sharing 10 things you should NOT do on embarkation day.
If you are planning a cruise soon, you’ll want to give today’s podcast a listen. We’ve got lots of great cruise tips and a fare amount of silly side-tracking.
If you don’t have time for the whole podcast, you can get a peek at the list below.
- Not printing off your boarding docs & not completing pre boarding paperwork online
- Arriving too early, or before your assigned boarding time
- Not knowing your cruise line’s carry on beverage policy
- Not packing a small embarkation day bag
- Thinking the buffet is your only option for lunch
- Not exploring the ship
- Waiting to do the muster drill
- Missing sailaway
- Not confirming dining arrangements
- Not savoring the moment – don’t rush around so much that you don’t enjoy the day

- As good as a Guys Burger with TotsNovember 23, 2021 by broberts71 from United States
I have truly enjoyed this podcast after discovering it about a month ago. The CTTV team are able to share so much relevant information with enthusiasm and care for their audiences needs for information! Sheri, Mr CTTV and Junior are tons of fun to listen to, they make my drive home go by too quickly at times. Thanks for what you do guys, keep up the great work!
- Great for Cruise and Travel Lovers!October 12, 2021 by Bethanyfm from United States
I started listening to CruiseTipsTv Podcast last year while I was stuck at home missing travel. I believe I discovered it from listening to Cruise Radio, and it was recommended. I soon discovered their YouTube channel as well and find their videos entertaining and informative. I really appreciate how down to earth Sheri and her family are and that they give their honest feedback in a positive manner. This podcast makes my work day more fun as I listen at my desk. Highly recommend listening to this podcast if you love cruising and need to escape from the real world for a little while 🙂
