Default seeing other cabins....

So, let's say you are on a cruise, and want to look at other/better cabin lay-outs to help decide if it it worth it for you to upgrade next time.... I've always wondered if any official tour of different room types is ever offered on board... or it you ask at the desk, will they show you? Stupid, but I feel guilty if I try to peek when door open for room cleaning.... Also, if I read that a room is like 180 sq feet, etc, its hard for me, without seeing it, to visualize what that is like and whether I personally would feel it was worth more $$$, etc. And, yep, I'm probably too chicken/shy to try to broach the topic with, for example, table mates I've just met at dinner, etc. On the other hand, I'm curious as to if I saw different cabins for myself, whether I would say yep worth the money or nope, why bother paying extra for that.... the whole "what cabin should you pick" being so subjective..

Virtual tours on the website are a great tool. Also "webshots" (.com) has had pics of the very cabin I wanted to see on several occasions. Not the same as being there of course, but a nice preview.

Default Room Tours

Just ask the stateroom attendant if it is ok to "peek" into another stateroom. I have done this on serval occassions during the deboarding time and never been turned down.

A lot of the time, when the attendants are cleaning a room, they leave the door totally open, no harm in taking a peek if you are walking by, I do :-)

I was fortunate enough to be on the Freedom of the Seas, Media cruise , and we toured the $$$$$$$$$ cabins, that otherwise I would have never been even able to peek in. It was like lifestyles of the rich and famous! Oh, the luxury of sooo much space!

My cabin was next to the presidential family suite, and boy, they could have played touch football, on the multiple size balcony they have, like a 3 cabin width!

In real life, I might sneak a peek too:):)

Presidential Family Suite is the size of four junior suites.
