I'm sure this has been posted a billion times on here by other knotties but I went back five pages and didn't see anything of significance.
FI and I are brainstorming for September HM ideas and it's come down to Las Vegas or a cruise. His parents have offered to pay but we have no idea what the HM budget will be. We're generally thinking that it may be somewhere in the 2k range (at least until we're told otherwise.) Also, I'm not a big fan of flying because of all of their stupid rules (which I understand, they just make me not want to fly...ever) So, I am hoping we get to go on a cruise. /fingers crossed
This brings me to my reason for my post. Neither of us have ever been on a cruise and we have no idea where to start/what to expect.
Things that I think I know (please tell me if I have any incorrect information):
-Cruise prices are listed per person.
-I live in Arkansas. I think the only Port of Call that is within driving distance is New Orleans.
-The best time to book a cruise is 6-8 months in advance.
-You should be in your Port of Call the night before you depart.
That just about sums up my entire knowledge of cruises. Anyone have any need to know info for me? Do I need a passport? Are there any tricks to getting a good price? Any questions I should have answered before booking?
Really, any information you have would be absolutely fantastic. TIA!
