Okay, Kevin...
Ready for my question?

I am thinking it would be better to take the stairs instead of the elevator. No waiting for the elevator to come, better cardio workout.

I have a room booked on deck nine. This is two flights up to the pool deck, taking the stairs. It is five/six flights of stairs down to restaurants and entertainment.

I am considering changing to deck eight to be more centrally located. Three to pool, four/five to restaurants and entertainment.

Will I go to the top deck more or downstairs more?

One thought is that since I have an inside room, going to the top deck is where we will need to go for the quickest fresh air.

I am hoping for more pleasant weather than we had on PCC 2.0.

I am so indecisive!!! Help me!

Actually - the quickest fresh air is on deck 4 - the promenade deck.

I was wanting to have an inside room, simply because I wanted to see what the virtual porthole was like...but my DD insisted on an varandah....any chance you would let me see yours?

I took my 2 daughters on a British Isles cruise last summer on Princess. I was paying, so we had an inside cabin!

Oh, course. I will swap a view of our virtual porthole for a view from your verandah.

I was surprised how quickly my sister agreeded to the inside room.
She enjoyed a balcony on her first cruise last year. She cruised for a week on Carnival last December during the week that included New Year's Eve. I assume that would be a high price period. Her balcony room cost only a little bit more than our DCL inside stateroom. I guess that why she agreed to inside!

I might be tempted to spend more on the cabin if I traveled infrequently, but I don't cruise to sit in my cabin. I love to travel, and I would rather take several moderately-priced vacations than one expensive one.

That sounds like a good plan !!

Great, that works for me !!

My DD just wants some fresh ocean air this time, so that's why she insisted on having a varandah this time

That's my take also...we spent very little time in our cabin and that's why I wanted another inside room, but I can also see my DD point....have access to the outside would be nice, and might keep us in a little more..she just wants to order room service in the morning and sit outside having coffee...that way she can take her time getting dressed....she's cranky first thing in the morning before her first cup of coffee

I've had balcony cabins twice, and one was a free upgrade. My first verandah was in a cat. 6 handicap-accessible cabin on my first Disney cruise with my elderly mom. She wanted the balcony because she didn't get off the ship in port - so I agreed. She hardly left the cabin except to eat, but she also didn't use the balcony - except to shoot a roll of film (yes, film!) while we were docked at Castaway Cay. I didn't consider it worth the extra money spent.
