5 Reasons To Book An Inside Cabin On A Cruise

Hey cruisers! If you’ve ever thought about booking an
inside cabin on a cruise, you’ve no doubt run through the list of “What if’s”
that tend to confound us ALL when choosing the perfect stateroom. What if there’s not enough room for my stuff? What if I feel trapped or claustrophobic? Well, there’s no easy button for picking
the perfect cabin on your next cruise, but if you’re tossing around the idea of an
inside cabin, here are 5 reasons why you may want to consider it. Today’s episode is sponsored by our awesome friends at Cruiseline.com. Where you can find reviews, tips and photos from real everyday cruisers. Seriously, if you haven’t already, check them out using the link in the description below. Number 1, and probably the most motivating reason most people book an inside cabin is to save money. The reality is, inside staterooms can generally
save you a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per cabin, and it just makes good financial
sense, for some cruisers, to save the dough, and put the money elsewhere – like excursions,
or specialty dining. Here’s an example for you: on our upcoming
10 night Alaska cruise, booking an inside cabin, instead of a balcony, saved our family
of three just under $2000 total. Yup, you heard it right. That’s a lot of scratch! Now, while we’d love to invest in a balcony
for glacier viewing and some of the best cruise scenery in the world, I can dream up some
pretty amazing activities to spend that extra money on and I have no doubt I can find awesome
outdoor places on the ship that offer up equally stunning views. Number 2- inside cabins get SUPER dark at
night. We’re talking “full light blocking”
here folks, and as a light-sensitive sleeper, I love the total blackout that an inside cabin
creates. Some people report that they sleep better
and wake up a tad later in these total eclipse conditions- not a bad thing when you’re
on vacation. Just don’t forget to pack a nightlight or
a flashlight so you don’t stub your toe on the way to the restroom in the middle of
the night. Number 3- while everyone has a different opinion
on where to book the most STABLE cabin on a ship, some experts recommend that to minimize
motion sickness, booking an inside cabin, on a lower deck of the ship may be the best
way to minimize the rocking and motion that you experience. Be careful though, because booking a cabin
on a lower deck can also result in experiencing some engine noise and vibration. On the other hand, the lower decks on most
ships can be conveniently located near the promenade deck, restaurants, atrium and other
popular areas you may enjoy having easy access to. See, this isn’t an exact science. Number 4. Booking in inside cabin can be a great idea
for people who want to get out of their room and explore the ship and ports. We’ve all heard those cruisers who claim
to only use their room for “showering and sleeping”, right? Well, in our experience, there’s a lot of
truth to that. You might find that when you sail in an inside
cabin, you’re more apt to find secret spots on the ship with the best views, take part
in more onboard activities and to seek out adventure! This is definitely true for us. Lastly, our number 5 reason to book an inside
cabin is simple. If you book a balcony, you may get spoiled
and not want to sail in something “lesser”, even when it makes more sense. If you’ve settled on an inside cabin, we
have a few tips for you. Consider that some of the largest inside cabins
at sea are on Carnival and Celebrity cruise lines. Also, royal Caribbean’s newer ships have
inside cabins with virtual balconies- something to consider! One last tip- most cruise lines offer a bridge
cam on the TV, so you can switch on the telly and see exactly where you are, and what the
weather looks like, usually set to some really corny music. Be sure to catch out video on making the most
of an inside cabin, where we share tons of hacks to organize your “cozy” stateroom
to get the most out of the space- we’ll link to it in the description below. Thanks so much for watching! Be sure to share your reasons for booking
