How to Select your Cabin
One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make when booking a cruise is your cabin type and location. Check out what cabin types are available and what will suit your needs best.
- Least expensive (lowest category)
- Located in the internal section of the ship
- May have windows into the atrium of the ship
- Suitable for passengers who intend on being out and about a lot and don’t mind not having a view
Talk with your travel consultant about the price difference between an Inside and Outside Cabin, as the difference may be quite small.
- Almost identical in size and amenities to the Inside Cabins
- Sealed window or porthole to the ocean offering natural light into the cabin
- The Porthole Cabins are on the lower decks and are generally the least expensive in this category
- Most modern ships have large picture windows rather than portholes, but these windows may not be opened
- The Balcony (Verandah) Cabin is the next step up from Outside Cabins
- Sliding glass doors that give you access to the outside and ocean views from your cabin
- They are a place for you to sit, dine, enjoy the view or even have a massage
Enquire about the price of a Balcony Cabin, as it sometimes won’t cost you much more than an Outside Cabin.
Suites, Penthouses & Villas
- Range of luxury cabins that offer more space and facilities than other cabin categories
- Suites come in all shapes, sizes and locations
- Some have private balconies, others come without; others may offer interconnecting cabins for families and may accommodate groups of up to 14 passengers
They are a wonderful treat, especially if you have a lot of days at sea. A new trend is the Spa Cabin, offering direct access to the ship’s spa facilities.
