What’s it really like cruising now?

Truth about cruising now

“My advice for anybody who’s thinking about booking one of these TUI cruises is if you’ve got the time and the money, then go for it. I feel really good about this. It’s been a really special experience.”

In this exclusive interview with Morgan from the Very unOfficial Travel Guides, we find out the truth about cruising now. You’ll hear ALL the details on exactly what being a passenger onboard a cruise ship is currently like. Morgan has just returned from a 7 night “Journey into the Blue” cruise departing from Germany on the Mein Schiff 2 with TUI Cruises. The Mein Schiff 2 Journey into the blue is a round-trip special cruise itinerary with no port calls.

Truth about cruising now

“I have to tell you, this is the first cruise to nowhere I’ve ever done. And one nice thing about cruises to nowhere is there’s NO planning involved.”

This cruise departed from Germany, and traveled along the coast of Norway, Sweden and Finland with NO port stops. We know you have a lot of questions about what this cruise was like! This interview covers so much, and we learned a TON about cruising now.

“When you go to the theater to watch one of these shows, you cannot pick your own seat. There are crew members who meet you and take you to a specific seat. And that is where you have to stay put until the show is over.”

We got to talk in depth with Morgan and have detailed information for you.

We’ve got the true answers about cruising now like:

  • How has the muster drill changed (you won’t believe how they do it!)?
  • Were masks required?
  • What was dining REALLY like (we share a good laugh about his buffet experience)?
  • What was embarkation like? -Was a test required to board? -How did it feel to board the ship amidst a global health crisis?
  • What type of cabin did you stay in?
  • Did the ship feel crowded?
  • How was the entertainment?
  • What type of health screening does TUI cruises require currently?
  • Were other cruisers were cooperative about the rules?

And finally, we ask Morgan what advice he’d give other cruisers, hoping to cruise in the near future.
