Cruise Ship Transfers: The Top Mistakes Cruisers Make

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

It's important to get a reliable ground transportation company to take care of you when you're on your cruise. From cruise ship transfers to simple sightseeing, the incorrect ground transportation company could mean that you miss the next leg of your cruise!

Relying on Local Transportation Services

Local transportation isn't always very reliable, depending on where you are cruising. While it may seem easy and tempting to simply jump on a local transportation service, your transportation option could break down, get lost or might not even go to where you need to go to transfer. Local transportation can also be extremely confusing if it's in an area in which you don't speak the language.  Griffin Transportation Group has been providing high quality, reliable and affordable port transfer service for many years.

Waiting Until It's Too Late

When you're entranced with the local color, it can be easy to lose track of time. Cruisers have a tendency to assume that the cruise ship will wait for them -- and they will, to a certain extent. But mistakes can always be made. To make sure that you remain on schedule, you should always bank on leaving a little earlier and you should set your phone and watch alarms accordingly.

Going to the Wrong Place

When you're unfamiliar with an area, it can be easy to accidentally go to the wrong place. If you're using a transportation company that isn't familiar with your cruise, you could accidentally tell them the wrong destination entirely or end up at a destination that sounds similar to the one that you need to go to. Once this happens, you may not have enough time to correct your course! This is why it's vital to work with a ground transportation company that knows your schedule.

Not Giving Yourself Enough Time

Paying attention to your timing and using the right ground transportation won't help you if you don't have enough time to begin with. Going out of your way to see certain sights, have a nice lunch or complete an activity might sound like a great way to get extra bang for your buck -- but it can also run your schedule too tight.

When in doubt, ask your cruise attendant whether the company you're using is a reputable one. You may want to arrange for your ground transportation services in advance to avoid any potential issues! Griffin Transportation is your cruise transfer expert!
