Hi! My name is Melissa Schenk on behalf of expertvillage.com we are continuing our talk on cruise traveling tips. Now maybe you want to stay in touch with people at home. You might have to send an email, ships do have an internet café perhaps you might be bringing a laptop, they do offer wireless services those services do tend to cost a little bit more. You’re going to purchase a card and that card will have an access code to the internet café that you’ll type in with your password on it and it will basically you can purchase different amounts of minutes rather you want 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, an hour. As I mentioned the wireless card is a little bit more expensive because you can go to various parts on the ship you don’t have to go to just the internet café itself. So it lists some of those restrictions to you and when it is time to go home and fortunately you’ve had the time of your life but there will be an information meeting.
Listen to the crews director, read your newsletter every morning as I mentioned there will be a new newsletter in your mail box when you wake up you’ll get all of your mail in there but go to that information meeting. That information meeting will contain information about your luggage, how to leave the ship, where to leave your luggage and also any customs information in case you have to fill out any customs forms depending if you left the country or coming back or you need to fill out any of that. With your luggage again earlier in our segments we discussed having our carry-on. Very similar on the final day of the cruise in the evening sometimes you’re going to have to decide whether you want to keep your luggage with you or whether you’re going to put your luggage outside of your cabin door at night and usually at about 2 or 3 in the morning people come by and pick up your luggage.
You’ll be assigned numbers or color coded tags depending where you are departing or what plane you have to catch. So you’ll follow those instructions from your information meeting but make sure, make sure you take out some clothes for the next day I can’t tell you how many people always forget, they pack their luggage, they go to bed in their pajamas and they have nothing to wear the next day because their bag has already disappeared..
