What a great way to explore a region than sailing through unique and scenic locations! The dream of every sea goer is to navigate through a cruise happily and healthy. Are you worried about getting sick during a cruise tour? It'd be best if you stuck to a few precautions so that you don't become susceptible to illnesses such as head colds, seasickness, tummy troubles, hangovers, or sunburns, among others. Here're easy ways to stay healthy and reduce the chances of falling ill in your next cruise.

Always wash the hands

Here's one of the most significant ways to avoid falling ill with the norovirus or any other ailment while on a cruise. You ought to wash your hands before and after you take a meal, after using the restroom. Even while returning to the cruise ship after spending time at the port.

Also, wash or sanitize your hands after touching various items, including greeting strangers. You can never be too careful when dealing with unknown germs, which can easily affect you.


You ought to drink water to stay hydrated all through your cruise tour. Come with a reusable water bottle to fill it up in the cruise ship’s buffet or your cabin.

Are you often prone to dehydration during the hot weather? It would help if you used sports drinks that contain electrolytes.

However, be careful with the water you consume. In such a situation where it's not safe to take the local drinking water, only take water or beverages in sealed bottles to avoid contracting any illnesses.

Fight the jet lag

You certainly don't want to miss out on the fun during your first time on the cruise. When you're flying into Hong Kong, ensure you take a good rest before headed out for the tour.

Spend some time at the port to get acquainted with the time changes as well as the local weather. Don't lock yourself indoors. Take this time to enjoy the natural light wait for your cruise trip to commence.

Wear sunscreen

While packing for a cruise, don't forget your sunscreen. While you are sun-lounging on the journey, it's easy to get burned by the arrays of sunlight. It would be best if you apply and reapply the SPF 30 sunscreen.

It’ll enable you to avoid the anguish that comes with sunburn, which might inhibit you from enjoying your cruise.

Take the stairs

During a soothing cruise, one might get tempted to late-sleep, chair-hogging lounging, or daiquiri guzzling and demolish the buffet. With lots of sea days ahead, one might opt to take it easy and avoid sweating in the gym.

It'll do you right if you slot a moment of your time moving around during your lazy days of cruising. A straightforward way to keep fit is by taking the stairs.

You can avoid the elevator and stretch your muscles each day. You can also exploit the promenade deck and try the outdoor jogging track and enjoy a brisk walk.

Flying into Hong Kong is a time to enjoy different tour scenery. Don’t forget to try out the late-evening and night cruises. Explore the surrounding from a different viewpoint. You can use the above tips to avoid getting sick on your cruise tour.
