I'll never stay in a ________________ cabin again!


Recommended Posts

The "obstructed" Ocean View cabin. They placed us in a cabin looking out at the life boats and we awoke to several crew members outside our porthole preparing the boat for tender duty! Didn't see that coming.

Inside cabin. It is to dark. I need light to wake me up. I would sleep the cruise away.

This exactly.  I did do this on my first cruise (Alaska), and lost a good part of one sea day that way.  It really pissed me off.

Add me to the inside cabin.  Once and only once.  WAAAYTOOO small and dark for me.  We actually like to spend a fair amount of time in our room and there is just NOwhere to sit in an inside.  I will admit though....it's great for sleeping !

I also am not a huge fan of rooms all the way forward or all the way aft as that is a lot of walking for me.

I'm also going to echo Inside cabin. While I've never done it, I saw into one on disembarkation day on our first cruise and I couldn't imagine trying to move around with even one other person. Let alone being in there with only the awful aritificial yellow light as your only source of light. Of course maybe I had such a a ? reaction because I was coming from our Grand Suite ?

Nope, same reaction I have to the inside cabin even when coming from a Promenade View Inside (where there's at least a window, but since I can't see outside I don't count it).  I'd take it over an inside cave, though.

Travelling with another person, I will not book an inside cabin again (too little space) but If I were to cruise solo that's almost certainly the cabin I would book (as I can get my fix of outside views on deck and don't need to see from my cabin). Travelling with my wife, I'm certain I won't ever again experience a non-balcony selection (and aft-facing is almost a given where possible).

Not a fan of "never" but add me to the inside stateroom list. First cruise, 3-day themed on Carnival - 3 in an inside, BIG mistake. I am a balcony or better person and so is my wife, we like our personal slice of the sea. I'm sailing solo for the first time in September and still booked a balcony, although the price is comparable to an inside room LOL. BUT, I really wanted a balcony, somewhere to sit and stare, even as a solo traveler.

I have stayed in these several times and quite like them as a cheap alternative to an ocean view. However, you are absolutely right - curtains must be kept closed when you are in there with the light on. I have indeed seen some people's all glory! ??

Yup, this has happened to me too - in a promenade cabin, with the curtains closed to safeguard my modesty! ?

Suite snobs here.  We tried a deluxe balcony cabin but it was too small and don’t get me started on the space capsule shower.  And what the heck is the 3 in 1 stuff that comes out of the shower dispenser.  You want me to wash my hair with soap?  You want me to wash my body with shampoo?  On purpose???  
we have a JS booked on Explorer next October and seriously considering upgrading.  Just not sure the JS will be big enough.
