When it comes to seeing and doing a bit of everything on the holiday of a lifetime, then it simply doesn’t get better than a Mediterranean cruise.
Of course, as is always the case, there are a number of safety points to consider in order to prevent accidents and illness on holiday, something that is particularly important on a cruise because the sanctuary and reassurance of land is sometimes far away.
How can I avoid having to make a travel accident compensation claim after a Mediterranean cruise?
The first thing to remember when it comes to guarding your health on a cruise is that it it going to be hot, hot, hot. This brings to mind two particular things: suncream and water.
The first is vital to protecting your skin from what can sometimes be dangerous rays, whilst the second is important in keeping you hydrated and staving off heat exhaustion.
Illness and accidents on holiday can ruin the experience, no matter the beauty of the location, and should be avoided at all costs.
How can I steer clear of illnesses on holiday when on a cruise?
Once your cruise has been planned, it’s important to remember not to overdo it in your enthusiasm to experience it all.
Exploring at breakneck speed, day after day, will take its toll on your body and more than likely leave you a wreck not long after the first week.
Nobody knows your body better than itself, so it is advisable to listen to it. Thirsty? Get a drink. Hungry? Stop for food as soon as possible. Tired? Sit down and take it easy. You are on holiday, after all.
In terms of rest and recuperation, it is best to take advantage of sea days. Make the most of the opportunity to lounge by the pool, enjoy an indulgent massage or sleep in and allow your body the chance to recover from seeing everything in this sun-kissed slice of paradise.
