|Subject: Re: Advice needed on how "cruzin"|
Gail asked how to pick a room on a cruise ship. Well, if you want economy and stability (less movement felt), the lower decks are best -- Decks 2 and 3, especially. Also, midship is best for not feeling as much movement. Other than that, as you go higher on the ship, the rooms are usually priced higher. It's also best to stay away from the bow end or the stern end if you are higher up, as you'll feel a lot more movement. Inside cabins are cheaper than outside, so if you don't plan to spend much time in your room, it's economically better to get an inside. My daughter and I usually book inside, and sometimes we get upgraded to an outside. That's happened to me twice, but don't depend on it.
