Cruise ship cabins ain’t what they used to be
It’s been twenty-five years since I’ve been on a cruise, and times have certainly changed.
Back then, I paid extra for a cabin with a porthole and got an eight to twelve-inch glass window so thick I couldn’t see anything out of it.
The many options for cabins now available make picking your home away from home for the Writing the Waves cruise a fun task. Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas offers inside, outside and promenade rooms with and without balconies for all budgets.
Things to consider when choosing a cabin:
- How much money you have to spend
- How much time you will likely spend in the cabin
- How the motion of the ship affects you
- How many people will be sharing the room
