Advice for cruise lines just starting out


I’m so glad not to be going away this weekend, while I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both Thanksgiving and this past weekend, it is going to be nice to not have to make any long drives. I’m thinking about doing my Christmas shopping, and things like that.

But anyway… Some new cruise lines are starting to sprout up, and so today, let’s look at a few things they can do to truly excelin this business…. And the first one is something I hear about a lot. Do not nickel and dime people! If you want to say that this is an all inclusive vacation, make it truly that. Don’t have your crew always expecting tips. Don’t charge more for specialty restaurants. Sure, we know that premium service comes with a price. So go on and charge people what it will really cost people to get the experience they want up front.

Cruise lines should also have ideas of what they want to be known for, and the services they want to provide, and actually perfect those things before moving on to “bigger and better” things. Do they want to be known for great service? They should train their staff until they are perfect. I don’t think anyone has found the best way to do internet. Maybe these new lines can work on improving that.

Some people don’t want to just go on a cruise , they want to know exactly what the different crew members do from day to day. So let us go around with the chef for an afternoon. Let us see exactly what the captain does when he isn’t at dinner.

Let me know if you have any suggestions of your own. I would love to hear them.
