Cruise travels sound fun -- they really do. But seasickness, the lack of clothing, and even budget issues could spoil the fun of cruise travels. First time to go aboard? Here are five things that could make a first time the best time for a possible once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In every cruise vacation is a formal night -- and asking the travel agent regarding the number of formal nights the cruise has is vital to packing enough clothes for your travel. Baggage management is essential not just for airports but if travelers are willing to attend formal night. There is still room service during formal night -- helping resolve that problem. Still, it is worth knowing about.

Speaking of room service, it pays to be aware of what is free or what has extra charges. Unintentionally, the service crew could slip some wine late-night, but it has a dollar or three fee -- which can tear into the budget. But most room service during operating hours are free -- except for tipping. Order carefully.

According to Cruise Report, travelers could afford to buy detergent and use the ironing board in the laundry room if their clothes go beyond the expected date. But just in case first-time cruisers pack insufficiently, there is the latter option or spending more for laundry service.

It is a given that for every cruise, travelers must always bring a bathing suit or swimming pool clothing. Cruise ships have self-regulating climate systems and indoor swimming pools. Even if travelers are on a cruise bound for the arctic or tropics, swimming clothing is essential to maximize all the facilities the cruise has to offer. Swimming clothing is also great in case of actual threatening emergencies.

According to Cruise Critic, room service -- namely the crew -- understands the secrets to removing seasickness from first-time travelers. Instead of taking medications (which are essential to bring for most travelers), crew remedies often work. Cruise Critic also claims the "Purser's Desk" offers free seasickness medications, allowing travelers to save their medications for future situations.
