Take advantage of lessons and lectures – Cruise tip

Many cruise ships offer free lectures and lessons, and they regularly bring aboard one or more specialists to educate guests.

When on my own cruise, my favorite lecturer was the wildlife expert. He spent a week aboard the ship, lecturing once a day or more. During his discussions, he talked about animals native to the ports we were about to visit. His discussions were fun and didn’t feel at all like “school.”

Ultimately, he helped make my shore excursions much more fun. Learning about what I was seeing while ashore made my adventure all the more enjoyable.
