SCS019: 5 Helpful Tips To Plan A Cruise To The Caribbean with Kingsley Grant
Growing up in the rural parts of Jamaica, had it’s advantages and disadvantages. The phrase “plan a cruise” would not normally be a part of any conversation we would have. This requires vacation time, which wasn’t something common among us.
Some people from the city would be more familiar with these conversations even though they may not have actually gone on a cruise.
Not being familiar or up-to-date on certain phrases or words, some of the people from the city would label us sometimes as a “country bwoy (boy)” or “country gal (girl).”
It wasn’t something that I was proud of. As a matter of fact it was mostly used in a derogatory way. The implications is that you are not as smart, up-to-date, or “cool” as those who were from the city.
I’m not sure if you had this or a similar experience, but I think you are able to get the gist of the term and why it was used.
Advantages and Disadvantages:
One of the disadvantages of growing up in the country is that we were not exposed to a lot of things as those from the city. Some of us were kind of naive to certain things and our lives were more laid-back than those from the city.
For me, going on vacation was one of the “things” I referenced above. We knew about the idea but never experienced it in the true sense of the word.
Our family never planned vacations. My dad was busy with work as a solopreneur, which you will hear more about in this episode. His work solely depended on him each day going out to make an income. No work, no income.
To plan a vacation meant not having an income for that period of time. He was the main provider for the family, which made it even more challenging.
In this episode I talk more about that as well as delved into the following five tips on how to plan a cruise especially one that is Caribbean in nature.
Here are the 5 helpful tips to plan a cruise:
- Plan to exercise
- Avoid purchasing the wifi plan
- Plan your daily activities the day before
- Plan personal down time
- Prepare for a small shower space
Plan to go off the ship at each port for the experience even if it is just to walk around.
