Default Aha

We generally assign less experienced cabin stewards to sections with inside cabins. Could a lower service standard in these cabins result in lower ratings for everything else onboard?[/QUOTE]

That is what I've been told

Cool

A lot of times , first time cruisers purchase inside cabins to save money.
This could be part of the issue. I have found many long time cruisers don't even fill out the survey cards. I always fill out the cards or the on-line survey. They maybe should ask if this is there first cruise . Also brochures show a false picture of cabins of any category.

We just had a deck 6 inside cabin on Eurodam, and i have to say this is the best (most spacious) inside cabin I've ever had!

We always book inside. Of course, I'd take an outside or balcony if it was offered for free.

We like inside for the following reasons:
-total blackout - I get the most amazing sleeps this way
-we don't "stay" in our cabin other than to sleep
-I'm not claustrophobic
-We like the price savings. Even though an outside is sometimes only 10 ore more dollars per night, I sill prefer to save teh $70 overall and spend it on something else.

Our next cruise is on Disney, and we have the "magical porthole".

We haven't yet sailed Oasis or Allure though i'm anxious to try it. ... and that might be our first "pay for a view". I don't think I'd want to be be opennign up to all that interior noise with an interior view. Its the same reason I will never stay in a pyramid view at the Luxor in Vegas.

I urge everyone to have a stay at the Luxor at least once ,there is nothing like it.

Really? Not my thing. I much prefer the serenity of the Signature. I'd hate to hear all that ching, ching, ching, all night along (unless it was to the sound of me winning a huge jackpot!)
