Hi

I started off with an inside cabin and have worked my way up to a junior suite - and the balcony makes a real difference. I love starting the day off with breakfast on the balcony watching as we come into port. Would cope without but it really makes a difference.

Sonny, as you have cruised so many times in so many different cabins, was the owners suite worth the extra? As a cruise expert, would love your thoughts

No, I don't think it's that much better than a grand suite—at least that's my opinion.

We are taking our first RCI cruise in October. Because it was such an amazing deal we have gone for our first inside cabin.

We have done 18 previous cruises on other cruise lines all in suites.

We have also a GS suite booked in January.

It will be interesting to see how we like the inside cabin - bearing in mind it is less than a quarter of the cost of our January cruise.

I'd take a closet, too, if it means being on board a ship I love the balcony, and have done insides and outsides, have never done suites, but one day I'd like to try it. I'm an addict, but my hubby isn't. He thinks one a year is enough That's ok, I have a good time without him, too! I'm on board a ship

That is what we were thinking. An addict needs to get their fix no matter what.

We used to cruise a couple of times a year on HAL or similar in the Caribbean in a Suite or on Windstar in the Med.

Then came retirement and we said that would be the end of our cruising but like all addicts we have found we cannot give it up.

We may be in an inside cabin in October but everything else on the ship will be the same (apart from the Concierge lounge).

When we saw a 10 days cruise to Greece and Turkey for £1250 ($2300) for the 2 of us inclding flights taxes & fuel we could not resist.

I cannot think of anywhere else we could find a holiday at that price including food and entertainment.

cruise_addict - Like yourselves, we too, since retirement tend to mix the locations and types of cabins we enjoy on a cruise, as we all well know-It is the joy,relaxation, and pleasure of cruising that satisfies our psyches! Ahh,Mother Ocean! The Landlubbers don't know what they are missing!

Bon Voyage,

BillyBuzzy
