You’ve been planning your cruise by picking the perfect date and itinerary for your upcoming cruise, but how to choose a stateroom location. Everyone has different ideas as to what goes into the best location, so a few things to consider when making your selection:

  1. If you are sensitive to motion, having a stateroom center ship and on a lower deck may provide less movement of the ship.
  2. Many people feel being high up on a ship is more desirable. If this is your preference, it’s important to know that staterooms on the deck right under the pool deck tend to have noise early in the morning as they move the deck chairs around the pool getting ready for the day. Therefore, if you are light sleeper, this location may not be for you.
  3. Elevators tend to be very congested before and after dinner. If you do not mind taking the steps, then picking a deck lower will allow for fewer flights of steps to walk up and down. However, if you would prefer to use the elevators, the elevators toward the aft and forward tend to have less traffic and easier to get on during the dinner hour.
  4. For easy access to Cabanas, a stateroom in the aft of the ship till make it an easier and faster commute.
  5. If you are looking for a quiet deck without a lot of hallway traffic then deck 2 is a great choice. Keep in mind, a verandah is not an option in this deck, but for some, the tradeoff is worth it.
  6. If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your stateroom and would enjoy a large verandah, then a stateroom at the rear of the ship provides some excellent options, but they go quickly because of the popularity.
