We get asked all the time if you should save money by staying in an inside stateroom or pay a bit more for the amenities, size and view in a balcony stateroom. Is it worth it to pay extra for a balcony cabin on a cruise? Do I really need a room with a balcony?
Here are six of the best reasons to stay in an inside stateroom on your next Royal Caribbean cruise!

Been on 3 cruises...no way in hell I'd take an inside room. The balcony is worth every penny.

A room on a cruise is only for sleeping. Why would you spend any more time than that in the room. There is so much to do on these ships nowadays why be in the room.

I used to work for Carnival Cruise lines and have booked thousands of cabins. Balcony’s or suites are usually booked by those on their first cruise, those celebrating a special occasion, or those who are wealthy. The majority of my clients who had sailed before would always go for an interior cabin. This video is spot on. I got paid to fill cabins. I was not paid more if my clients paid more. For that reason I always tried to give my clients the best bang for their buck and would mention all the points in this video. I cannot count the number of times I was thanked for recommending an interior room. Great video. Keep up the good work!
Angie Smith (7 days ago)
I just stayed in an inside room for the first time to see if the money saving was worth it. It was NOT! Inside rooms are so dark it's hard to wake up. We all slept way more. In the inside one.

About the motion suckness... well no, the best place to be is the top deck, sickness is caused by rapid movement AND IT IS MOST RAPID TOWARDS THE MIDDLE AND THE BOTTOM OF THE SHIP.

I hope I'll be able to afford a cruise one day.
Angel Cupidon (8 days ago)
I was on a cruise over the Christmas holidays and stayed in an inside room and I honestly didn't mind it at all. We were barely in the cabin throughout the cruise if I went again I really wouldn't mind getting an inside room again.
Also Royal Carribbean cruise's look so much better than the one I went on! I thought p&o cruises were nice but this is on a whole other level!!!

Inside rooms should have screens that look like windows or portholes - and small external cameras can project what you would see outside onto these screens if desired when switched on.

We tend to say in an inside room most of the time.. we only sleep in there. If you spend a lot of time in your room... get a room with a view.

I love how dark inside rooms are! Suites can actually be a better deal though when you factor in drink packages.
Marcus W (11 days ago)
lmao dude first time I’ve ever seen any of your promotion videos....... If you are prone to even slight sea sickness DO NOT BUY WINDOWLESS..... as you can’t see the movement of the ship you WILL!!!! experience motion sickness. It’s not caused because it’s choppy...... it’s caused by your eyes not matching what your other senses are telling your brain...... me being an MD for 8 years lol I know what I’m talking about.

Ethan Gurwitch (12 days ago)
What ever he said he is lying. We thought the same thing when we were getting cruise tickets, that we didn’t want the balcony because we would not use it, but we got the balcony and we used it, and it was nice to have your own private balcony to use. When you use the desks up top it’s not as nice to sit at like your own private balcony.
Mellissa (12 days ago)
My story: I get motion sickness but I really, really wanted to take a cruise in my lifetime. So my husband and I booked a 3 day/2 night cruise to see how I would do. We were broke as we were nearly married so the inside room was the best deal. We paid less than $500 for it, including taxes. 😄
I took the highest dose of Dramamine before stepping foot into the ship. And it did seem to help. My husband's stomach was feeling a bit uneasy so he then took it. We remember the first 2 hours of the cruise and then going to our inside room. We slept 18 hours. Eighteen hours 😂
We woke up, ate, explored Bermuda for a few hours and then it was almost over. The inside room had 2 very narrow beds which was hysterical to my 6'6" husband. You could be on the toilet and he could touch both sides of the room. That was our first and last cruise experience. We think back on it with fond memories.
Hamir Bharwad (12 days ago)
If you want to stay at inside room and like to enjoy drinks, games etc why you go to cruise? That u can do it by staying at home... You are traveling by cruise/sea and u r not feeling it then what is a sense of going on cruise. You may spend all of your time on the cruise deck but if you can spend 5 minutes in the balcony then also price of sea facing rooms Worth The Money/Bang For The Buck..
Vee Macks (13 days ago)
1:27 "be low and to the centre of the ship for less motion sickness". This is exactly the conclusion I came to myself after being in a massive storm. It wasn't a cruise ship, it was a giant car ferry with 12 floors. I used to get a window room (at the side of course) and up high (floor 7 or 8). After that storm I figured the centre of the ship has to be better because it moves the least. The ship can be swaying side-to-side in a massive swell but the centre doesn't. Also, there's only so long that seeing the ocean horizon is interesting. It certainly isn't helpful at night.
Stephanie Mac (14 days ago)
I like how dark it is inside the room. I always get the best sleep that way. And yes, the price is better. I’d rather spend my money on shore excursions and spa treatments.
I have also gotten mildly seasick on occasion.
Michael T (15 days ago)
Looks like Royal Caribbean is having a hard time booking inside cabins.
The ONLY time I would book an inside cabin is if the price was under $50.00 per night, per person.

My family, everyone smokes like a chimney, where do we have to go to smoke with an inside room? Is smoking allowed on the balcony?
Royal Caribbean Blog (15 days ago)
Smoking is not allowed on a balcony. It is only allowed in designated areas, which is usually one side of the pool deck and the casino.

AllAmericanGuy01 (16 days ago)
I made the mistake of getting a suite on my first cruise. We were barely in the room. The only time we spent in the room was sleeping and changing clothes. Other than that, we were out enjoying the ship's activities and island excursions.
Saliida Li (16 days ago)
I did a 2 and a half trip with my family in an inside room from Hamburg to New York. The trip was AWESOME but the room was like kinda bad. We were above the motor wich was like bad luck. We drove above the Atlantic and trust me if you're in an inside room sea sickness goes way up! I did 3 cruises before and never got sea sick. There I was one whole day just sea sick on an outside deck with a howle buch of people because I just felt so bad and I couldn't go to my room because it made it way worse, also just saying I went the first day on the basketball field and hurt my food (in German it's gezerrt idk what it's in English) so the wind was pretty bad. But after all you're right it's better doing an cruise tour in an inside room then being at home! These Tour was like the best thing I did in my entire life!

Went on a total of 2 cruises in my life: and so far my conclusion is GO FOR A SUITE if you can afford it. First trip was on Costa Favolosa. Balcony Room premium I think. Second cruise was a balcony suite (grand suite, i think?) and it added so much to the luxury experience
Amanda Smith (22 days ago)
Balcony rooms are a must for me. I've been on about 7 cruises with half of them being in inside staterooms or ocean view. And not one of them were even close to being as good as the balcony. It is pricier but definitely worth it. The views are always awesome and having a nice private smoking area to yourself does have its benefits. Especially after dinner, a blunt is a must. One of the best feelings in the world 😊.
Mike Btrfld (23 days ago)
Funny because I'm 69 years old and I'm spending the winter in my warm cozy basement for the first time. Never had the experience of no windows before. On sunny days I go up and bask in a south facing window. I'll take a balcony lower down, maybe go fishing from there.. lol.

i’m 14 and i’ve been on 13 cruises. most of the time we’ve stayed in inside staterooms. only a few times we’ve had balcony or windows. either is great. i’m not sure what to say about sea sickness bc i’ve never had it but i think any stateroom is good tbh. If you know how to cruise, you’ll barely be in your room except to sleep basically. if you’re not sure, a stateroom with a window is a happy medium. Any way I cruise, I’m happy. I’m just grateful that i get to go

You can turn the cabin TV on the outside camera channel. It helps with the need for a window.

i went on the allure of the seas, no tea no shade but the outside rooms were so pretty to see the ocean and fall asleep to slight rocking and ocean sounds and not all of the sounds of the people talking, eating, running, and the huge water shows.

I’ve been watching historical boat accidents and clicked on this thinking it would be saying why it’s safer to stay in an inside room 😂 boy was I wrong.

tbh I would prefer an inside room anyway, I can't sleep unless in pitch black, although if they were _exactly_ the same price it would be nice to have a nice view of the sea.

what do you think of when you say the word
nice romantic getaway
wake up to the sun rise on your own private balcony
get to see the ocean for miles and miles
(depending where you are) you might see some dolphins or some whales
with no windows you don't get any of that

This is number 8th cruise for us, 5 balconies and 3 inside. 3 of the balconies were last minutes offer to upgrade for almost free, otherwise inside isn't bad at all. I cruised 2 cruises for the price of one balconies in the past, more cruises the better... Save your money from buying a Ocean View or a Promenade, Boardwalk or Central Park view, not worth the money
