3. Remember to drink plenty of water before your flight to avoid dehydration during it.

4. Don’t leave home without noise cancelling headphones – very important! I use “Beats by Dre” and they work very well.

5. Arrive at least a few hours early for your international flight so you can check-in early and have time to relax before your flight.

7. Enjoy a nice cocktail in the air to smooth the nerves and start enjoying your vacation.

9. Avoid putting valuables or critical items, like medicines or keys, in a checked bag; instead pack them in your carry-on.

10. Be aware of all foreign document requirements before you make your flight reservation or you could get stuck at the airport. Double-check the ports on your cruise itinerary, as many of the ports we visit require visas for entry.
