You just have found the best cruise line, the perfect spot and the right itinerary but the plan is not yet over because you have to get the right cabin. The fact is that you are not going to find any best cabin because there are none; all you have are the staterooms.
However, you need to choose the best staterooms for you so that you can enjoy the vacation the way you have planned.
Narrow down the choice of stateroom:
Interior stateroom: These are the windowless rooms that are generally good for changing cloths and sleeping, you do not have much luxury here to see the outside oceanic view. This is good for the people who are looking for the budget tours. You might say that you can have the view at the public areas but the tradeoff is that it would be too crowded.
Ocean view stateroom: These rooms provide a glimpse of ocean view through the picture window or porthole. However, you need to be extremely careful of the term ‘obstructed view’ while searching for the sea view staterooms. This would mean that you have a passage from where you can have ocean view but it is more likely to be obstructed by a lifeboat or something else.
Balcony stateroom: These are cabins where you will have private balcony and sliding glass doors, however, you must member the fact that sizes and shapes would vary from ship to ship. You would also have few chairs and table where you can have glass of wine as you look at the horizon over the roaring sea.
Suites: This is considered to be the ultimate luxury ex prince because here you will have all the amenities including living room, bedroom and balcony. You can have butlers and whirlpools. In some cases, you would also be able to get access to the spas and dining rooms of the ship.
Which one should you choose?
The choice of rooms boils down to the amount of budget that you have and what all you can compromise. Nobody would know more than you how much you can spend. Hence, the choice of the rooms or the cabins is subject to the amount of money that you are ready to spend.
But here are few things that might help you in making better decisions. For instance, you need to know that if you are not someone who loves to walk a long distance, then you might choose a room near the elevator for comfort.
But the trade off is that you have to cope with the noise that comes with it. If you have motion sickness, then you should book the room in the middle or down to the tower to avoid motion or sea sickness.
