How to cruise in style on your next cruise
Posted On June 12, 2021
I’m about to embark on a brand new cruise around the world, and as part of my journey, I’ll be going to a place that’s known for its fabulous, glamorous hotels.
There’s one in particular that I’m looking forward to.
You see, when I signed up for a cruise from a luxury hotel in Paris to one in St. Barthelemy, my booking agent wanted to know if I’d be comfortable staying at the hotel, since I’d had my last stay there in February 2016.
When I explained that I’d only just arrived, the agent asked, “Is that a problem?”
He added that I had to leave the hotel before the next ship arrived.
It turns out that if you do this, you’re not actually leaving the hotel but, instead, entering a hotel on a cruise.
The problem with this is that when you leave, you also enter a hotel and enter a “carnival atmosphere.”
The carnival atmosphere means that you’re going to have to spend a lot of time inside, and a lot more than you should.
But since I’m not going to be leaving St. Bartholomew on the night of my cruise, it’s fine if I want to spend the night there.
There is no “luxury cruise” rulebook for me, so I’ll have to be prepared.
So, before I get started, here’s the thing: when you enter a luxury cruise, you don’t necessarily have to stay there.
I don’t want to leave this hotel, but I can’t really be bothered to leave because I’ve booked it as my “cruise destination.”
I also don’t have to leave in order to get on a different ship.
And since I won’t be leaving at all until the next day, it doesn’t really matter what day of the week I enter.
The cruises aren’t going to let me leave, and if I leave on a weekend, I can easily change my mind and stay there during the day.
So if I’m going to the next destination, I have to take it all in stride.
How do I book a luxury cruises?
In the beginning, I found that I could get a hotel reservation online from hotels around the globe.
However, after a few reservations and a little bit of work, I realized that it wasn’t the easiest way to book a hotel because the hotels aren’t very good.
I’m a bit of a sucker for hotels that have some kind of online booking system and, after some digging, I was able to find a website called Luxury Cruise Adventures that lets you book hotels in a variety of ways.
The sites that I found seemed to work well for me included, but were not limited to: Royal Caribbean, Atlantis, and Carnival.
These sites all have their own booking pages.
Some have the option to reserve a hotel for a week or two while others allow you to book the hotel for just a few days.
Once you select your cruise, all of the hotel reservations are listed in a sort of “weekend reservation” form.
For example, my first cruise booked for January 8 was booked for a weekend and was reserved for January 15.
I paid a little over $500 for a hotel room in this area, and I only had to book it once.
But the booking form was a little confusing because it listed my hotel as “Saint Bartholomena,” but listed it as “St. Bartholemy.”
I was told that I would need to make an appointment with the hotel staff and would be responsible for a $25 deposit.
I figured that would be enough, and the next morning, when the hotel was ready, I took my hotel reservation and entered it into the online booking site.
I was then directed to the booking page, which showed me my “Cruise Destination.”
I had already booked my hotel in St Bartholomé on February 1, and this was the booking date for the next cruise.
After filling out the information, the website told me that I needed to submit a photo of myself and my name, along with a phone number to verify that I was who I said I was, to verify the reservation and to pay the $25 fee.
After that, the hotel called me to confirm the reservation.
Once I had my photo and my confirmation number, I signed the booking and the website asked me to complete my booking information and a credit card authorization number.
It then called me back and asked me for the credit card information.
I did so and, within minutes, I received my hotel room reservation.
Unfortunately, I had trouble getting my credit card number because I didn’t have a credit number.
But I managed to get my credit cards information.
So I used my credit-card information, and then I went to the website to complete the booking process.
There were a few steps involved in this process.
First, you had to fill out a payment form.
This was done online. When
