Staying healthy on a cruise

The last thing that you want to do is to get sick when you are on vacation, so here are some tips to make sure that you stay healthy when you are on your cruise.

1. Prepare

If you are going out of the country, make certain that you are vaccinated against any known illnesses that you might come into contact with at your destination. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

2. Medicine

If you are on any medications, be sure to bring them with you. Make sure that you bring the actual bottle with you in case there is a question of the legality of your medicine, and that it is marked with your name and the dosage.

3. Rest

Something that people forget to do on a vacation, sadly enough, is rest. They get caught up in the excitement of the trip and they want to experience everything they can so they get their money's worth. But when you are run down, you are susceptible to becoming sick, so give you body time to recuperate.

4. Watch what you eat

Remember to maintain your recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables on the cruise, and don't load up on rich, high calorie foods. There are a lot of tempting treats on cruises, but your body will rebel if it's not used to that type of food.

5. Use common sense

Drink bottled water, and wash your hands often. This, above all else, will help you to stay healthy on your trip.
