Join a Cruise Roll Call
Before embarking on your cruise, consider joining a roll call on forums like Cruise Critic or Facebook groups dedicated to your specific sailing. These online communities allow you to connect with fellow passengers on the same ship and itinerary as you. These groups can help you make new friends, share insights about the ship and its destinations, and even plan group excursions or meetups.
Roll call groups often have members who have experienced cruisers and can provide valuable advice on packing, dining, and onboard activities. You may also find information about exclusive deals, discounts, or events you might have yet to learn otherwise. Participating in a roll call can significantly enhance your cruise experience by helping you feel more prepared and connected before you even set foot on the ship.
