Is it your first time taking a cruise or are you looking for travel tips? CT Interline has got you covered with answers to the most frequently asked questions about cruise travel.

We’ve found you the cheapest cruise deal, now let’s give you some tips to keep in mind when you’re on your dream vacation.

How do I book a cruise?
Call CT Interline at (636) 625-8747 to reach a sales associate who will find the perfect cruise for you.

Are cruises affordable?
The answer is simple: YES. The reason cruises have become so affordable is because there are many cruise types which will suit your preference and your budget. The great thing about cruises is you know the total cost of the trip in advance because everything is included, except for your drinks, shore excursions and special services. The entertainment, meals, cabin, daytime activities and nighttime festivities are factored in to the pricing.

The most affordable time to cruise is between the end of August and before Christmas.

Which places can I cruise to?

It’s amazing how many places you can cruise to. Some of the most popular choices include Alaska, Bahamas, Bermuda, Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Mediterranean and Mexico. Call us at (636) 625-8747 or click here for more information.

Do I need a passport?
YES. All passengers must carry a valid passport.

Are cruises kid-friendly?
Most cruise lines provide activities for children. Your kids will go crazy for a family cruise if they enjoy swimming, games, movies and sports.

What should I pack?
It’s best to find out the type of clothing required for your specific cruise. Many cruise ships will have formal nights which will require you to bring a couple dresses or suits. Resort wear and sports clothes are acceptable to wear on board during the daytime. It’s also recommended you bring several swimsuits. When you’re on shore, you will want to have comfortable shoes to walk in and protection from the sun (hat and sunscreen).

For the evening, it might be best to have 3 types of formal wear clothing. CT Interline suggests sundresses, slacks and blouses for women; sport shirts and trousers for men for a more casual look. Dresses for women and jackets for men for a more formal look than the casual. Finally, cocktail dresses for women and suits and ties or tuxedos for men for a formal look.

How long are cruises?
The length of a cruise varies greatly from 3 days to as long as 3 months.

Will I get seasick or have motion sickness?
While it’s possible, it’s unlikely.

Are there different classes of service?
Cruise ships are considered ‘one-class,’ meaning everyone onboard has use of all the ship’s facilities. The price of the stateroom is primarily based upon the room’s size and location, but no matter the package you choose, you can expect to have the same service, menus and activities as every other passenger.

Do I have to participate in the activities?
It’s your vacation so feel free to do as little or as much as you like!

There’s no cover, admission or ticket to the activities onboard. It’s a great way to meet new people or to just relax!

What about passengers with special needs?
We urge you to check with your travel consultant for details on accessibility and assistance on ships.

What about laundry and electrical outlets?
Most cruise lines will do your laundry and dry cleaning in one day for a reasonable fee. You can bring your blow dryer and electric razor as you won’t need an adaptor.
