Let's Explore Your Stateroom Options

Ah, your home away from home.

The cruise lines have really upgraded and upscaled the staterooms over the past 5-7 years with newer ships coming standard with flat screen TV’s and coffee makers in the cabins. Of course the best amenity is a private balcony where you can unwind overlooking the exciting ports and enjoying unparalleled sunrises and sunsets.

Selecting the right cabin is important (obviously, right?!) and here is one element that you don’t want to end up doing yourself without the expert advice of our Cruise Consultants. Be sure to Contact Us when you are ready to get started. 

Typically, there are 4 cabin levels: Suite/ Deluxe, Balcony, Oceanview, and Interior. Now, each cabin level has multiple categories dependant mostly on ‘where’ they are located on the ship and types of amenities amongst other things.

The most important thing is first choosing a cabin level that will meet your expectations. To give you an idea of what these cabin levels are like, select each below. We’ve also included some examples of what’s available in terms of categories within these levels.

Suite/ Deluxe Level

Suites are the crème de la crème as they offer more room, comfort, and luxury. Typically, suites range from 180 to 1,200 square feet. While that is a wide range and sounds complex, it can be easily explained. A common feature of all Suites is a private deck, most oversized 

As you may expect, all cruise lines and each ship offers differing dimensions, amenities and styles.  Let’s look at a few of the categories available within the Suite/ Deluxe level classification.

 

Presidential Family Suite (Royal Caribbean): One of the largest staterooms at sea, the Presidential Suite has room for the entire family!

 Balcony Level

 

The benefit of a balcony cabin can best be summed up by illustration: imagine opening your balcony door each morning to see a new destination of the world. Or enjoying a spectacular sunset as you literally watch your worries carried off by the breeze. 

 

It’s a little something like that! 

 

As you may expect, all cruise lines and each ship offers differing dimensions, amenities and styles.  Let’s look at a few of the categories available within the Balcony level classification.

 

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (Royal Caribbean): Two lower beds (convertible to a queen) with a sitting area (some with sofa bed) and vanity area. On most ships they also offer a mini bar and private balcony among their amenities. Approx 200 square feet.

 

Concierge Class Veranda (Celebrity): Measuring approximately 200 square feet, Concierge Class features two lower beds (convertible to a queen), floor-to-ceiling glass doors and large sitting area, some with sofa bed. These cabins also offer: welcome champagne, daily fruit selection, fresh-cut flowers, daily hors d'oeuvres, menu of pillows (conformance, body, goose, and isotonic), duvets and pillow-top mattresses, leather key holder, personalized stationery and a tote bag, double-thick Frette bathrobes, Hansgrohe showerhead, VIP invitations to events, early embarkation and debarkation, dining and seating preference, preference on shore excursions, and express luggage delivery.

 OceanView Level

 

You don’t have to leave your room to capture the breathtaking scenery… just look out your window! An OceanView cabin is a nice mix between Balcony and Inside levels as it gives you a window on the world.

 

When talking about OceanView or Interior, most lines are the same: approximately 150-200 square feet, two lower beds (convertible to a queen), shower and/ or bath, vanity/ desk area and a small couch.  The extra amenities that you see with Suites and Balconies typically go away so the decision comes down to “what does the ship offer?”. They are all nice cabins with subtle differences in décor and style but most offer the same basics.

Interior Level

Interior cabins are perfect for two people you might use their room like a hotel – always out and about experiencing the destinations and the ship. You’re hardly in the cabin anyway and don’t necessarily value a Balcony or an OceanView so why spend the extra money??!
