Cabin choice

As I said before,  we're very happy with an inside cabin but which one?  There are various factors to take into account.

  • Do we want to be on a lower deck where there will be less movement if the weather is bad?
  • Do we want to be in a higher deck with easy access to the outer decks if (I mean when) the northern lights are seen?
  • I don't want to be near a lift or stairs,  either for passengers or crew.  Avoiding corridors where passengers will be returning to their cabin after a night in the bar also sounds like a good idea.
Decisions, decisions!

When you live in a quiet, rural part of Scotland it's difficult to adjust to regular noise such as that you'd experience in a town- hence the reason for avoiding noise that townies probably wouldn't notice.

(Having lived in city centres, town and on-site residences, I think I'm well enough qualified to comment)

Some people say that there's less noise if you have a cabin on the starboard side. The port side is where all the cargo loading and offloading happens. Could be some noise when the ship docks in the night.

We ended up with a port-side cabin and the noise didn't waken me, I'm glad to say.
