Always the planner (like me!) my 16-year-old asks me a great question, “What are we going to do on our cruise if it rains?”
You have this perfect, luxury cruise vacation planned, but somehow that doesn’t get conveyed to Mother Nature. It happens. The clouds start rolling in. I always try to look on the bright side that at least it’s raining while I’m vacationing on a cruise - not working, running errands, or driving carpool.
Best Tips When It Rains On Your Cruise
SO, what are you going to do on the ship?
My first advice is to always check your daily cruise planner for the next day. Every cruise line includes the forecast so that you can try to tailor your activities around the weather. If clouds or drizzle is anticipated, getting dressed in your swim suit first thing in the morning might not be the best idea.
Virtual Hint: When rain hits, you may feel a bit more of the ocean. If you are concerned about seasickness, I have some great tips on ways to help seasickness.
when visiting a poRt on a rainy day, things to know:
Whatever the weather, rest assured it won't be consistent for the entire cruise. Captains are experts in steering the ship towards better weather conditions. If you take part in the various activities, relax and pamper yourself, enjoy the different venues and types of food offered, and spend time with the friends and family you came on board with, you will always have the perfect cruise vacation.

About the Author
Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this website and blog, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically travel on cruises or stay at luxury hotels. We enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, with a family including two teenage boys, we still need family friendly and comfortable.
