Stateroom aboard Carnival Sunshine.

You’ve already made the best decision – deciding to go on a cruise. Whether it’s your first time or you’re a sailing pro, your next decision is an important one: what type of stateroom to book for your cruise. Each type of stateroom has its pros and cons.

On our most recent sailing, we were on the deck above the main theater and could hear the music from the shows as we walked down the hallway.
3. How much walking do I want to do? If you’re on a larger cruise ship, or even a mega ship, this is an important question. The larger the ship – the more walking you’re doing to get from place to place.
