What Are the Rooms Like on a Cruise Ship?

By Robert Palmer

Cruise ships are floating cities, and just like a city, they have a variety of rooms for passengers to choose from. From inside cabins to luxurious suites, there is something to suit everyone’s needs and budget.

Standard Inside Cabins

The standard inside cabin is typically the smallest and most affordable type of accommodation on a cruise ship.

It usually has a twin bed setup (or two singles pushed together) and limited storage space. Most inside cabins come with a bathroom and shower, as well as air conditioning. Some may also include basic amenities such as a TV, refrigerator and safe.

Outside Cabins

Outside cabins provide the same basic amenities as an inside cabin but with one added benefit – a window or balcony with views of the sea (or sometimes an interior view). Depending on your budget, you may be able to upgrade to an outside cabin with more space, better furnishings and upgraded amenities such as an en suite bathroom or minibar.


Suites are the most luxurious rooms available on cruise ships. They often come with separate living areas, private balconies or terraces, walk-in closets, large bathrooms with Jacuzzis or steam showers, plus upgraded amenities such as TVs in every room and access to exclusive areas of the ship. Suites also usually have concierge service, which can be helpful if you need assistance during your stay.

Conclusion: Cruise ships are designed to give guests the best possible vacation experience by providing them with various types of rooms that range from basic inside cabins all the way up to luxury suites at the higher end of the spectrum. Whether you’re looking for something basic or luxurious, there’s sure to be something that fits your budget and needs on a cruise ship!
