There are so many amazing reasons why having a balcony on a cruise is amazing.
Now, it’s no secret that I love to cruise. And I can’t always afford to have a balcony cabin, but when I do, it’s fan-freaking-tastic. Don’t get me wrong sometimes getting a balcony simply isn’t worth the extra dough. If you’re sailing off-season when there may be cold weather or high winds, there’s just no point in having a balcony off your stateroom. Wondering what makes a balcony cabin so special? Check this out.
Listening to the water lapping against the side of the ship at night is such a soothing sound. I often leave the door open just a crack so I can hear the waves crashing on the open ocean.
Nothing beats waking up to a beautiful sunrise right outside your window, except maybe watching the sun sink below the horizon at night. One of my favorite things to do after dancing the night away is bring a cup of ht cocoa up to my cabin to enjoy while staring at the stars.
If you’re sailing someplace warm or where there are great views—I’m thinking of places like Geirenger, Norway—then it’s totally worth shelling out the big bucks. Any time you’ll be sailing near the shoreline for the majority of your trip, you can catch some amazing sights day and night. You don’t want to miss a thing. And I just love when I wake up with views of a foreign place outside my window—so inspiring.
