#7 Reason to Take a Cruise with the Family


 Staterooms Don’t Feel Like Sardine Cans

Are you worried that the staterooms are going to be way too small on the ship?

I’ll admit this was a big concern of mine, especially when I read that the staterooms were only 185 square feet.  While I love my family, I didn’t want to feel like I was in a sardine can for 4 days.  I also worried about where we would put our luggage.  Would I be living out of a suitcase the whole time and bumping into it all the time?  Well, let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised.

While we did book two rooms (and an extra for my parents), fitting 4 of us in a room was no issue.  We had a king size bed, the sofa was turned into a twin bed and on top of that was a twin bunk bed.  Then there was about an 18 inch to 3 foot space and along the other wall was a line of cabinets and closets that provided enough storage to unpack 4 days of clothes for the four of us and store the full size suitcase.  The room seemed even bigger by the fact that above the cabinets was a wall full of mirrors.

To make it even better, I had chosen to book a room with a balcony and to me (and the rest of the family) this was definitely worth every extra penny it cost.  Stepping out onto that balcony with enough room for 2 chairs, a small table and some extra space was one of my favorite experiences of the cruise.  There you truly felt the grandeur of the open sea.  Seeing the stars in the wide open night sky, was even more awe inspiring.  It was then that I realized how small we each are in relation to the galaxy.
