5 Commonly Asked Questions
In an effort to assist those who are considering, planning, or already booked a cruise, I have answered many questions regarding cruising. In answering those questions, I caution that there are some things that all cruise lines have in common, but there are other areas in which each cruise line differs. Here, I have included a list of five commonly asked questions, as well as a list of some cruise lines and the corresponding links to how they address each question. As usual, we hope that this is helpful.

The following are reputable shore excursion companies/websites that My Cruising Family recommends, and we also recommend using resources such as other cruisers, including www.cruisecritic.com and www.tripadvisor.com reviews to locate highly recommended tour providers themselves, which cuts out the middleman in the shore excursions booking process. There are a number of tour providers that My Cruising Family has recommended in our cruise reviews posted on our blog.
