We will use a wake up call if it is a port day and we have plans starting in the morning. Otherwise we just get up when we get up and on a cruise even I (who is not an early riser) will get up pretty early.

We like to be up at 6AM to use the fitness center and get a good workout prior to stuffing ourselves at breakfast .

I have never stayed in anything but an inside cabin. When you cruise solo and have to pay a huge single supplement you get the cheapest room you can. It is amazing how dark it is when you turn off the light but I get used to it. I prefer to spend my time on deck or in one of the lounges than sitting in my room. To me, the cabin is only for the 3 S's ==== Stripping, Showering and Sleeping.

Default inside cabin always better than not cruising


I've cruised with the " Get Out of the Cold" group 5 times. My last trip we did a 2nd cruise.
I'd love to have a suite with a butler and all the extravagances; however this is highly unlikely for me.
One of the group cruises I did alone, my travel agent sister and group host, found a small cabin that had 2 portholes. That was very nice and I did enjoy the view very much. I have an ocean view cabin reserved for my upcoming group cruise out of San Juan, Puerto Rico: Jan 19 - 26, 2013. I'm still hoping to find a Female roomy for this cruise. Share some time and activities but also be free to do as each wants.

Have flashlight; will cruise:-D

I notice people say they sit in the lounges because they can't sit in the inside cabin, I hope they are not hogging seats in places where others wish to buy a coffee or a drink, but can't find a seat due to people sitting reading or other pursuits without buying anything.

I live in a city of 25,000 people .I've posted this before and some people did not believe me but there have been no reported crimes of violence in the 10 years I am living here . We do not have a police force .

We are 10 minutes from a beach community and 5 minutes from a beautiful park and an outdoor swimming pool .

There are no pool halls ,no bowling alleys ,no movie theaters .

We do have approximately 100 restaurants and many stores .

For me its a beautiful place to live especially in the spring and summer .

I was last in Kamloops in 1976 ,at the time I was living in New York City and Kamloops seemed to be a wonderful place to live .

First, I'll admit that I didn't read every post .

Now, my suggestion if you have an inside cabin is to leave your TV tuned to the forward camera shot, and mute the TV. When the sun comes up, you'll (hopefully) wake up .

I understand what you are saying. I like to have a cabin with a balcony, and I enjoy having a drink in my balcony and gaze at moon and the stars and listen to the ocean, I go to bed.

When we have inside cabins , we have found that enough light comes under the door during the night.

....couldn't take it. NEED air, NEED windows! [/QUOTE]

Some of the larger ships have the inner wall of an inside cabin opening to the inner mall. Won't work for me...I need a window/sliding door that faces OUTSIDE.

The only time I don't like a window is flying...thats when I don't want to see the sky, clouds or birds. Weird I know...

Myself and DW sleep in totally dark room at night . When the sun comes up in the AM it wakes me up.
