Dining on Cruise liners

Cruise ships dining are floating feasts. It has become a myth that dining on a cruise ship simply meant your choice of Continental classics. Today it’s a newly world order when it comes to dining on a liner. Laden with uniquely modern and varied palettes, in some cases graced with worldwide celebrity chefs.  They also showcase worldwide authentic cuisines which is known to most of us through pictures. On-board restaurants and dining are varied and the options are larger for bigger ships.  The menu could be from anything American to continental often accentuated with international choices.

The main restaurants are banquet style and themed with a strict dress code and restaurants besides the pool always call in for casual dressing.

Facts about sea sickness

Many would-be cruisers has this fear, what if I get se-sick? Well Yoko cruise experts do have some handy tips to ensure that you have a very smooth holiday on-board.

Look for larger ships that cruise in good climates. Island hopping in Caribbean is a great way to kick start with. Thanks to the stabilizing technology available on cruise ships, the up-and-down and side-to-side movements that may have made you sick as a dog on previous boat trips are greatly minimized.

Choose your cabin wisely. Midship cabins, which are always first to be sold out, are least motion-sensitive, hence they are the best and first choice of people who are prone to sea sickness or to first timers. The more towards the middle of the ship, the better. You’ll feel more stable. Motion is most felt atbow cabins — at or near the front of the ship —and staterooms in the highest decks

Status of Connectivity: Phone and internet

Cruise ships now equipped and fully wired with Internet cafes, front-to-back Wi-Fi and crystal-clear cell phone transmission. Making a cell phone call , or  getting connected via social media or browsing the web , anything is possible now. While some operators have been making technological leaps, not all cruise lines are equally equipped.Major part of the sail do not guarantee consistent high-speed service which you get at home. Connectivity varies significantly from line to line, and ship to ship, depending on factors like location and available bandwidth.Liners do have two types of connectivity. Wireless Internet Access (Wi-Fi) and Wired (internet Cafes)
