Cruise Ship Vacations

Many cruise ships today have standard cabins of similar size and accoutrements, with the price difference is location. The least expensive, inside standard cabins on a major cruise range from about 120 square feet to 180 square meters. Since most cruise ships are relatively new or have been refurbished, the cabins usually are furnished with single beds that can be pushed together to make a double bed for couples. The cruise staterooms have wall to wall carpeting, air conditioning / heating, wardrobe or storage space, wardrobe, telephone and satellite TV. The television usually has news, sports, local ship channels for transmission of information on shore excursions or from guest lecturers and films. Some cruise cabins have VCRs or DVD players, televisions, and some also of radio and music channels. The cabins also usually have a night table lamps read, and a chair.

Most modern cruise ships come with a hairdryer, so I do not have to bring one home. Some standard staterooms feature personal safes, table, desk with chair, convertible loveseat, mini-refrigerator, and even Internet access, although it is often much more expensive than the common Internet lounge. The cruise brochure or Web site usually specifies what facilities are in each cabin. Bathrooms cabin normal cruise are usually tiny and most only have a shower (no tub). The shower usually has good water pressure, the only complaint is the small size. Do not be surprised if the shower curtain keeps trying to attack you! The bathroom has a sink, toilet shelves, and a noisy vacuum toilet like on an airplane. Often there is a small step between the bedroom and bathroom, ideal for Stubbing your toe.

The bathrooms also usually have a retractable cord for drying your swimsuit or hand wash. The next step above an outside cabin is one with a balcony (terrace). These cruise cabins have sliding glass doors, which gives access to the outdoors. The sliding doors also mean you can see outside from anywhere in the cabin, ie are in bed and still see the ocean outside. Usually cruise balcony cabins are also larger than standard cabins, and some qualify as mini-suites. This means that they have a small room with a sofa or loveseat convertible. The mini-suites for cruises usually have a curtain that can be taken to separate sleeping and sitting areas. This feature is ideal for couples (or friends) who have different sleeping habits.
