How to Survive Your First Cape Town Cruise
If you’ve booked your first Cape Town cruise, you might understandably be experiencing a mixture of excitement and nerves. That’s okay, you’ll soon be enjoying the fresh breeze through your hair as you take in the scenic views of Table Bay and the impressive 12 Apostles. But to get you ready for your grand Cape Town adventure aboard a luxury cruise ship, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Know You’ll Need to Find Your Sea Legs
If you don’t have a lot of experience spending time aboard ships, it might take a while for you to find your sea legs. Don’t get frightened if you don’t feel like yourself immediately after stepping onto the vessel, just hold out a little longer and it’ll be well worth it, you’ll see.
Have Something to Eat – An Hour Before Your Cape Town Cruise
Where possible, avoid eating anything heavy, greasy or acidic, and steer clear of dairy, but do eat something light about an hour before the boat leaves the harbour. Ginger is great at preventing sea sickness, and also acts as a remedy to sea sickness.
Wear Flat, Comfy Shoes
Seriously, who are you trying to impress? It’ll be challenging enough navigating your way around on a moving boat for the first time, don’t add extra pressure with high heels or boots.
Sunscreen – It’s Cape Town, After All
Depending on which time of the year you have your Cape Town cruise, you definitely need sunblock, and even a hat to protect you against the unrelenting African sun. This is especially true during the windier times of year. The sun’s reflection on the water can also cause extra damage to your skin, so lather up!Book Your Cape Town Cruise with Tigger 2
