On some other lines, such as HAL, certain 'sideways' cabins are considerably larger than 'regulars' in the same class....not sure about the ones on NCL.
coming back is the other half!

We rearrange our room as soon as we get into them,lol.Holy cow...I never thought of this. We always end up pushing one side of the bed toward the wall in order to have a bigger walk way on one side and the other person that sleeps up against the wall just climbs out at the bottom (no biggie for us). But I had never thought about turning it sideways for even more room. Thanks!
We seem to always rearrange as well.
For the sideways one to make more room with the queen set up, just turn the bed so the head of the bed is against the wall with the pull down bed on it with the bed centered.
We moved EVERYTHING in my parents cabin last week,lol. the room steward (who was AWESOME by the way) looked into their cabin right after we did it and just goes, "oooh, you moved! very nice!" lol!
They had a regular setup obst ocean view and we turned the bed so the head was centered as I said before so my mom could put her fan on the ledge under the window and my dad could put his cpap machine on the vanity table.
on our first cruise(on the Sun) I had a inside with my friend and when we got there it was set up with the beds next to each other and the couch parallel to the beds under the pull down. So we moved things so the beds were each against opposite walls with the couch longways between them.
It made a TON of floor space. Literally you could have stood 10 people in the open space. We just put the nightstands together like a coffee table in front of the couch.
Your countdown clock says your on the jewel next year- what port/sailing date? we'll be on her jan 5th out of NolaI'm on the Jewel this year. Dec 15th. My countdown says 10+ months.
yeah, I suck at math. didn't even try to add it up, just seemed like it should be next year.That sounds like an awesome deal. We got ours for $1450 for 3 people, which I think it was $556 for the first 2 and then $338 for the third person. We sailed the week before Christmas this past year (2012) and it was HECTIC!!! I said I probably wouldn't do it again, but I had already booked the one on the Jewel for this year before going on that one. I have a friend from our previous Epic cruise that has booked it as well, so no turning back now. It will just be another hectic Christmas. hehe
We SHOULD be cruising every Jan from now on. Weve decided not to do xmas anymore and just go on a cruise.
January works well for all of our sceduals and its off peak season so its cheaper. My cabin for the Jewel will work out to be only $440 including taxes.
And its a sideways one again, of course
Can someone tell me if you notice more noise from the hallway? I'm assuming since the cabin door opens right near the feet of the beds that any noise from the hallway is pretty noticeable? I'm a light sleeper and wonder if this type of cabin is worth it to me. Thanks.Welcome to Cruise Critic .
Do all the rooms have the bathrobes and a coffee maker on the Star. Which places to eat are included in your fare. TIANo, all of the rooms don't come with bathrobes. It depends on the room you book and your "status".
No, all of the rooms don't come with bathrobes. It depends on the room you book and your "status".insides don't usually have coffee pots either but if you ask your room steward, they can usually obtain both for you.
