Subject: Advice needed on how "cruzin"

I am planning on taking a cruise for the first time in March for my 50th birthday. I will be taking my 2 daughter, age 16 and 22. Living in Southern California, I can easily leave from Los Angeles or Long Beach.

I have research 4 day, 3 night Friday-Monday cruises but could not find anything that gave me an overview on how to pick my room. There are so many levels. can anyone offer any ideas of where to choose a room?

When it comes to picking a seat on a flight, I know exactly where I want to sit. 'Cruzin' is a new experience for me.
