We knew we were in trouble when the cabin stewardbrought us an empty ice bucket. I asked what it was for, and he said that sometimes the room made people sick. To this day, if hubby and I talk about that room, we start laughing.
Once we had a balcony (last cruise) we will not go back to an inside or ocean view... It is nice to walk outside for the fresh air and see the sites when coming into ports..
Well worth the extra amount of money..
I tend to go with inside cabins. First off, we're generally only there to sleep, change, wash up, etc. And we're not claustrophobic so that's not an issue.
I get quotes for inside, outside, and balcony. Then I look at the differences between those numbers, multiplied by the number of family members. Often the difference between inside and balcony is $1,000 or more (there's more than two of us).
And then I think...what shore excursions could I buy for $1,000? Or what art could I buy for that much? Or what gemstones/jewelry?
Well... I think my sister and I may be in biggg trouble.
Through a series of upgrades and alot of excitement, we found ourselves booking the Penthouse Suite (cat 12) for our very first cruise.
I already suspected it was going to be hard to downsize on our future cruises, but after listening to all of you.... I'm afraid, I won't be able to book anything but the Penthouse...
And believe me, I'm not exactly rich.
