Collectively, Cruise Critic's editors set sail on about 70 cruises a year. We've made (and learned from) our share of travel mistakes and picked up some smart tips from fellow travelers, as well as Cruise Critic members. We're pretty confident we're among the savviest cruisers around ... though that doesn't mean we're not panicking or staying up until 1 a.m. packing the night before a trip!
Whether it's your first cruise or your 50th, there's always something more to learn about smart sailing. Benefit from our years of cruise experience as we share our top tips on packing, saving money and maximizing your time onboard and ashore.
