hi this will be our first curise and we are trying to pick the best room and location,we want a room with a balcony and were looking at the rooms at the rear of the ship or the very back .Could someone let us know about that room location and maybe the best location to get the most sunHi Finny44,
HiIf you want a very specific room, I would recommend booking sooner than later to insure that you get what you want. When I book a cruise, I then watch it to see if the price has gone down. If it has, I'll call the TA or cruise line (depending on who I booked with) and ask if my booking applies to the reduced fare. If so, they will change it. Sometimes you see several price drops and other times maybe not. There are some great deals out there right now. Good luck with your booking!
Thanks to everyone who sent me answers to my last question about rooms
What we would like to know now is when to book our trip.We are planning to sail at the end of Jan/10,should we book now or wait for a last minute deal ,some people have told me to book now and some said wait, that i will get a better deal last min.I have also been told that you get upgrades if you book early and that the cruise lines will match other prices Any suggestions?
I agree with the previous person. Mid ship for your first cruise to see how you handle the motion of the ship. There will be less motion midship. Also cabins above and below you, there will be less noise than having public areas above or below you.I agree with this poster 100% Once you cruise more often, then you can try different locations, but for your first cruise--cabins above and below (but mostly above) and mid ship is the best way to go!
