We are going on the Sapphire Princess in Feb. 13 to the Mexican Riviera. I have been on 2 previous Princess cruises and both of those times we had a balcony room, which was great. This time we are going the cheap route () and getting an inside cabin. I am hoping an inside cabin won't make me more sea sick than a balcony cabin. The cabin is D521. Any insight on that cabin would be appreciated!
We sailed on the Sapphire last February in cabin D700 (mini-suite). D521 is more mid-ship, so there should be less motion. I'm prone to sea sickness and don't do well in inside cabins, even with taking dramamine. After 2 cruises booking inside cabins, we switched to a balcony on the 3rd cruise and never went back to the inside. Being able to pop out on the balcony for fresh air was helpful. If you're not one to spend much time in the cabin, you should do fine. Happy cruising!
Don't worry, you are in the perfect location for an inside cabin, and a good choice if you are worried about seasickness. The inside cabins are well lighted, so that they don't feel claustrophobic, and fairly roomy. The room is completely dark at night, so bring a small nightlight.
Just curious....anybody know what the big white space is beside that cabin? And how about the big white space underneath it on Empress deck?
