CHOOSING YOUR IDEAL CRUISE slice it: A standard cabin with four people in it will be cramped. However, when you consider how little time you’ll spend in the cabin, it’s doable. The obvious incentive to share one cabin is the price: Whether children or adults, the rates for third and fourth people sharing a cabin with two full-fare (or even discounted) passengers are usually about half of the lowest regular rates. On occasion there are special deals and further discounts. If you can afford it, and if space equals sanity in your book, consider booking a suite, many of which have a pullout couch in the living room.
Ship stabilizers assure smooth sailing and all have plenty of deck space from which you can take in the coastal sights. Due to their deeper drafts (the amount of ship below the waterline), the biggest of the big ships can’t get to some of the islands and small ports that smaller ships may visit. However, the more powerful engines on these ships allow them to visit more ports during each trip, and shore excursions allow you more closely to explore different aspects of the port’s history and culture.
WATCH OUT FOR SCAMS As the adage warns, if you hear a deal that just sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. If you get a solicitation by phone, fax, mail, or e-mail that just doesn’t sound right, or if your agent gives you the creeps, contact your state consumer protection agency or local office of the Better Business Bureau (www. org). Or you can check with the cruise line to see if they’ve ever heard of the agency in question. com. 4 Choosing Your Cabin The cruise lines have improved accommodations a bit since Charles Dickens referred to his stateroom as a coffin, but cramped, windowless spaces can still be found—on the other hand, so can penthouse-size suites with expansive verandas, Jacuzzis, and hot and cold running butler service.
