26 Aug The Benefits of Upgrading on Your Next Cruise
Now featuring such wondrous attractions as surf simulators, waterslides, aqua-theatres, boardwalks, zip-lines and more, cruise ships have become quite amazing places in and of themselves. Many people assume that they will spend all their time onboard going from activity to activity, but the truth is, you will spend a lot of time in your cabin.
Because of this, many travelers are choosing to upgrade their interior cabin for a balcony stateroom, but is it worth it? Speaking as someone who has been on many cruises, we can say with confidence that YES, it is worth it! Here are the reasons why:
The View — The ever-changing view that cruises provide is greatly enhanced when experienced in the ease and comfort of your balcony. Just imagine sitting on your own private balcony, sipping champagne and watching your ship pull into Barcelona or sail next to a glacier!
The Space — While all cabins are extremely comfortable and well-appointed, the main difference is space. With a balcony to call your own, the limitless ocean becomes one of the four walls of your stateroom, making it feel incredibly spacious.
The Cost — Balconies do cost more than an inside cabin. But when you divide that cost by the length of your sailing, the per-day cost to treat yourself is quite low.
The Escape — Even though cruise ships are sizeable, with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy, it’s still valuable to have that one place to escape to and enjoy the cruise in total peace and quiet.
The Option — Another terrific possibility for cruise passengers is upgrading to a cabin with concierge service. Having a concierge’s assistance is invaluable, as he or she will help you secure reservations at onboard restaurants, book the ideal shore excursions, get you priority seating for on-ship events, provide insider information and much more.
