Cabins on Galaxy


Recommended Posts

I am booked on a Category 9 room - 1039 on GAlaxy for a Med. cruise. However now the price is over $300 cheaper for a category 10. I am wondering if anyone knows the different between Category 9, 10, 11, 12 on Galaxy and if it really makes that big of a difference. I looked at their website and it appears the location on the ship is the difference, but i dont' know the advantages of each location. Can someone help me chose a cabin? Thanks!

Many people prefer the middle of the ship. The closer you are to mid ship, the less movement you will feel. The location with the least movement is at sea level and mid ship. That said, on the crusies we have been on, rocking and rolling of the ship has NOT been an issue at all.

Additionally, On Galaxy, in categories 9,10,11,12 you may want to stay away from the cabins that are all the way aft as some do complain of vibrations when leaving ports. Cabins all the way forward in those categories may hear the early morning sounds of droppping anchors on ports that are tendered.

Is it really $300 cheaper for a cat 10? Wow, that sounds a lot to me. I'd check the price again. According to the X website, the difference is about $36. Am I misunderstanding something?




btw, 1039 is a nice location. Pretty well mid-ships for the advantage Roy mentions above and amongst the suites. Little traffic and handy for the pool and spa.

The cabins themselves, in categories 9,10,11 and 12 are the same in termsn of size and amenities. The only difference is the location on the ship. In general, you will feel more motion if your cabin is in the front or the the back as opposed to the middle of the ship. You will also feel more motion on a higher deck than a lower deck. You may also feel vibrations from the engine in the back of the ship. That being said you also need to consider what is above and below your cabin.In general, you don't want a cabin that is above or below the casino or some other venue that will be active late at night.
