Whilst booking a cruise there are many types of rooms you can book depending on your budget. When I first went cruising I stayed in an interior room which is a room with no windows. I didn’t mind this at the time as I didn’t stay in the room much. I then booked a room with a port hole window. I didn’t really see the point in having this room.On my latest cruises I have been having a stateroom with a balcony. Sometimes when you book if you leave it nearer the time you can phone up and see if they can upgrade your room for you. If you are travelling somewhere sunny then a balcony is perfect as when I went to Norway last year there was no need for a balcony room as it was freezing.The next room upgrade from the stateroom balcony is the mini suites and suites which have sofas and larger balconies. When you first go on a cruise you are given a cruise card which is blue and then after a certain amount of cruises it goes up to gold then silver etc. These are cruise memberships depending on how many cruises and days you have travelled with that cruise company. With the membership come benefits with each card ranging from free pins to free internet on board.This is the stateroom which had a 2 twin beds, dressing table, fridge, two chairs, TV and a large area for storing clothes and suitcases. The bathrooms on cruises are just the right size even though the shower could be a little bigger.
The balcony has two deck chairs and a small table and looks over the mini suites and suite balconies. The room is the perfect size for two people. I definitely stayed in my room a lot more this time as I had the balcony. It’s nice to wake up in the morning and sit out on the balcony or watch the sun set.
I would love to be able to stay in a mini suite or suite one day on the Princess Cruises.
Are you planning on going on a cruise?
