It has been happening all the time. Someone spent thousands of dollars on the cruise, and then they couldn't sleep at night because the running sounds and chairs were scrapped on the deck above them, making them tossing and turning all night. To avoid disappointment with your cabin, we have compiled a list of the top 5 locations you might want to think twice before booking.
1. Under the Lido deck This is not always called Lido Deck on every boat, but will usually have a deck of swimming pool, buffet and other deck space. The trouble with setting up a cabin under the Lido deck is that there is usually an activity happening there, especially in the buffet area. You may hear jumps, chair scratches and running. This may last until 1 or 2 in the morning. Then at around 4 or 5 in the morning, the staff will be ready to go. If you are in the kitchen area, you may hear the crew open the stove and prepare a buffet breakfast. Cruise ships often hold deck parties on the Lido deck.
2. Close to the white space on the deck. The deck plan usually only shows the area of interest for cruise passengers. What you can't see is the housekeeping service room. The staff only has elevators, laundry rooms and so on. Unless you know the contents of the blank areas on the deck, it is best to avoid them. In some cases, it may be a housekeeping service room. The cruiser was awakened early in the morning because the butler was preparing their supplies for the day. You can get in and out of the room and you can hear the door keep turning on and off.
3. In the lounge. The lounge that deserves attention is where the band can play and the passengers dance. Sometimes these routes run until after midnight. If you want to be quiet in the cabin just above the lounge, you might sing music and noise in the lounge below the room. When the Norwegian cruise company moved the spinnaker lounges on several of their ships to the stern of the No. 7 deck, the cabin above the No. 8 deck (used above a very quiet gift shop) has now passed a very popular The welcome lounge is very noisy after midnight.
4. Above or below the casino. Casinos cleverly use noise to attract customers and immerse them in gambling. Therefore, the volume of all these slot machines will rise, trying to attract you. The problem is, if you are in the special class above or below the casino, if you want to sleep, you don't want to be attracted. If you don't like to sleep, the sound of Las Vegas hits your mind and we will avoid booking a cabin near the casino.
5. At the fitness center. The fitness center usually starts watching activities at 5 in the morning. Although it is a good shape on a treadmill in the morning, it is not so good for those who try to sleep in a hut below the fitness center.
There are other areas to be aware of, such as near a gangway or other areas with a lot of traffic.
On the other hand, there are some good cabin locations that tend to lead to a better cruise experience. As long as the following special class does not meet any of the above criteria, you should go well. The first five best positions are as follows:
1. between other special classes. If your cabin is above it, there are special cabins below and around, then you are more likely to get a good experience in the cabin. This is not always a guarantee, as you may end up with a neighbor who likes to increase the volume of the TV. But usually other passengers around you also want to sleep, so they can enjoy the next day's activities.
2. at the stern. Aft cabins are often very popular because they provide a wonderful view of the stern and usually do not have many neighbors. You still need to know what is around your cabin. For example, on some princess ships, the stern cabin may be close to a loud vent and may also emit some unpleasant odor (check the blank area on the deck). In most cases, the aft cabin is popular and cruise customers like them.
3. Midship State Class. The Midship cabin on the upper deck often brings a better cruise experience. Since you are at a more central location that you want, this location makes it easier. Some ships are very large, and moving from one end of the ship to the other may give you more movement than you want. Also, since the elevator is sometimes very busy, if you have to use the stairs, this location means less stairs or stairs.
4. Extended balcony. Sometimes deck plans show them, sometimes they don't, but some cabins have larger balconies than others. Space is everything on the cruise, and this extra space can make your cruise experience better. Instead of sitting on a narrow balcony, these balconies have loungers that allow you to really stretch. Some of them are covered (affected by weather and wind) and some are open (large amounts of sunlight). Several carnival vessels marked extended balloons on the deck plan. On some Grand Princess ships, the last aft cabin on the port and starboard side of the emerald and dolphin deck has an enlarged balcony.
5. Hidden gems. There are many such cruise ships on the cruise ship, and a good cruise/travel society knows them. For example, the front sea view cabins on the upper deck of some celebrity ships, such as the Celebrity Summit, are much larger than the normal sea view, and the large portholes provide some wonderful views of the bow. On some smaller princess ships, such as the Dawn Princess, the sea view cabin in front of the Dolphin Deck offers a very large balcony sized window. On some carnival boats, such as the Carnival legend, some of the inner cabins on the main deck actually have French doors that allow a lot of light to enter, some of which actually see the lifeboat.
We can add more content. Because cruise ship designers only have a certain amount of space to use, they can sometimes showcase the special class very creatively. Studying the deck plan and studying the cabin pictures helps determine what is good and what is not so good, but the best way is to venture into the high seas and try different types of special classes.
