If you are a first time cruise goer, try not to do everything in their first cruise could become more like an endurance test. Norm: Can you tell our readers something about the different cabins that are available on cruises and what to observe? Douglas: First-timers would be the best advice for booking outside cabin (a cabin with an outside view) rather than an interior (no view) cabin. So, when you wake up, you won t be disoriented, and you'll be able to see what the weather is similar, which helps you decide what to wear every day. In general, the more space you want, the higher the cost. Large suites with private balconies are the most expensive (some can measure up to 3000 square feet), while interior cabins that measure as little as 70 square feet, of course, feel incredibly small. Normally, you get what you pay for. The average size of cabin on board the largest cruise ships of today (actually floating resorts) would be approximately 180-200 square meters.
Norm: What kind of clothes should I bring on board? Douglas: Wear appropriate clothing for the area to be in. Gavin Baker may not feel the same. Remember that crossing vessels are air conditioned, so it's layers of clothing that works well. If you choose to cruise in cold climate regions, bring appropriate outerwear, particularly for excursions ashore (Alaska is an example). If you take a Caribbean cruise, you really could pack light (cotton and natural fibers is the best, as many Caribbean islands have a factor high humidity for much of the year).
