Cruise - Getting Out of the Lower Deck Cabins
Taking a cruise for the first time can be one of the most exciting ventures
you may take upon yourself. Cruises are a great time for fun, family,
laughter and a care free lifestyle, but first-time cruisers are not
advised to rush into the cruising thing very quickly. You may find
yourself disappointed on a lot of levels.
The location of your cabin or sleeping quarters on the ship are a large
part of whether or not you will enjoy yourself on your stay on the ship.
It's hard to have a cabin on the lower level of the ship under a veranda
or walkway because people are constantly walking overhead, but if you
have a cabin on sea level, you may have people outside your door at
all times of the night. Having a cabin or state room under sea level
can have its financial advantages, but sacrificing your cruising fun
to save a little money may not be worth the extra dollars in your pocket
if you are unhappy with your space. At that, state rooms are usually
final after the cruise ship has 'set sail.'
For those of you out there who are cruising for fun and want to get
the most out of your voyage at sea, cabins at the rear of the ship may
be your best bet. These areas do tend to be pricier than the standard
two twin-bed cabins, but they are the most luxury rooms on the ship.
These cabins are called aft cabins, or rear cabins and they usually
feature some type of porch or balcony with a view of the ocean. The
view is always breathtaking no matter what the weather, but take caution
in the fact that these cabins don't always take turbulence at sea very
well. If you are inclined to sea sickness, a rear cabin may not be
your best bet.
On the flip side, a bow cabin (a cabin at the front of the ship) also
has an excellent view. Since it is so far above sea level, bow cabins
usually take sea turbulence just as roughly, if not rougher than the
rear cabins but they are excellent for the sailor at heart. Sometimes
bow cabins feature balconies or verandas as well, and they certainly
get an exhilarating spray of water from the ocean in these, more pricey
While also an option to avoid if you are prone to sea sickness, higher
deck cabins are also an option outside of the standard, lower level
cabin quarters on the cruise ship. They are a lot closer to lounge
areas, sun decks, the pool, and dance floors etc, which people are willing
to pay extra money for. These cabins are usually a little above or
at sea level, so the rock factor is also pretty high in these areas.
Another down side to a higher deck cabin is the noise you may experience
from passers by. No matter what the cost or level, cruise ship cabins
generally do not offer a lot of privacy.
A mid-ship cabin is also an option available to you. A mid-ship cabin
is the best choice for those prone to sea sickness but who are willing
to pay a few extra dollars for a better living space. These cabins
usually feature the same amenities as the rest (two twin beds or one
large one, a nightstand or table, a dresser, a closet, a TV, and maybe
a bathroom) but they are centrally located cutting down on walk time
or elevator time; sometimes these quarters may offer a view of the ocean
through a window or porthole as well.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
