Keep in mind the following tips when choosing a room on a cruise ship:
- The quietest rooms are in the middle of the ship and – if you really want to sleep later – you won’t see any signs of a sunrise in an inside cabin.
- Unless you like to climb stairs, choose a floor that’s close to the main deck.
- Elevators on cruises are slow so you don’t want to rely too much on them. Also, rooms near elevators can be noisy.
- Finally, call right before your cruise to see if upgrades are available. If the ship isn’t full, the cruise line may give you a better cabin for little or no extra money.
