Before you set foot aboard the ship, take your ideas about what you want to do and see and make a plan (or find someone to help do the planning for you). Mix your ideas with your organizational skills to plan any potential private excursions or spa packages. Sprinkle in another healthy dose of planning skills to acquire any clothing, medications, or other necessities that you will use while on your cruise.
Turn up the heat and liberally apply your spirit of adventure to the dish by trying as many new things as possible. If you find yourself choosing not to try the destination-themed foods in the dining room, go on the excursions, or enjoy the cruise shows, ladle in more spirit of adventure. Let simmer.
Add a few more dashes of planning and organizational skills before you dock; most onboard shops will close while in port, so purchase any necessary items (like sunscreen or towels) before the ship anchors.
By this point, your Cruise Success dish should be fragrant and nearly complete. For a final touch, add a pinch of splurging on a souvenir or experience. Repeat as desired. Enjoy!
