Most cruise ships offer Wi-Fi packages that you can purchase to stay connected. You can also use the ship's cellular service for an additional fee. For a more budget-friendly option, wait until you’re in port and use local Wi-Fi hotspots or purchase a local SIM card for your phone.

If you're prone to motion sickness, consider bringing over-the-counter remedies like motion sickness pills or patches. Natural remedies such as ginger candies and acupressure wristbands can also help. Booking a mid-ship cabin on a lower deck may minimize motion effects.

Most cruise lines have strict policies about bringing alcohol onboard. Generally, you are allowed to bring a limited quantity of wine or champagne, but not hard liquor or beer. Any additional bottles may incur a corkage fee. Always check your cruise line's alcohol policy before packing.

Gratuities are usually added to your onboard account daily and can vary depending on the cruise line and the type of cabin you book. These gratuities cover the service provided by the dining and housekeeping staff. You can prepay gratuities before your cruise or automatically charge them to your account during the trip. If you receive exceptional service, additional tips are appreciated but not required.

Shore excursions range from guided tours and adventure activities to cultural experiences and beach outings. You can book excursions through Hupla before departure or once you’re onboard. Booking in advance is recommended to secure your spot, especially for popular excursions.
