Select Your Cruise Cabin

Below is some quick advice about your cruise cabin.

Many factors determine a great cruise experience. Admittedly, the selection of your cabin, especially on short cruises, plays only a small part in your overall experience.

This is because no one seems to spend much time in their cabin, other than to change clothes and sleep.

You have reached a Quick Advice page. A listing of these informational pages is found here in the Index. Choose the subject corresponding to the information you seek for a very quick reading of some things to think about as you plan your Da-z-z-ling vacation get away; or, simply a trip of peace and quiet.

A sense of satisfactory accommodations however does contribute to your overall cruise experience. As you go on longer and longer cruises, this "satisfaction barometer" becomes more important.


The selection of your cruise cabin determines a significant portion of the cost of your cruise.

Accommodations classified as a suite, or with a balcony, or as an inside or outside stateroom, and so forth, will increase or decrease your cost accordingly.

If you are an experienced cruiser, you already have a good idea about which cabin selection you prefer. You also have a good idea about your preferred cabin location.

Try to "step-up" to a higher accommodation level, in order to increase your "satisfaction barometer".

If you are new to cruising, "discovery" is your road to excitement. Carefully read the descriptions of all staterooms.

Make an educated selection.

As you make your selection, take into account the following factors that may be important to you:

  • SIZE of cabin - standard, suite or perhaps a mini-suite, etc.
  • VIEW - inside or outside cabin, stateroom with balcony, suite, etc.
  • NOISE Factors - near engines, elevators, below party decks, etc.
  • STABILITY - you feel less sway and roll the lower and more centrally located your cabin.
  • AMENITIES - depends on ship and type of stateroom.

Of course, a cruise planner can help you with determining the importance of the above factors (and others) to your overall cruise experience.

Look at your experience as an adventure and you will not go wrong. After all, you do not plan to spend a lot of time in your stateroom – do you?

Don't worry, be happy, have a cruise adventure.
