As cruise ships continue to grow in size, the number of bumper-sized cabins has increased, giving guests plenty of room to spread out and relax as they holiday on the world’s oceans. All the major cruise liners now boast an impressive array of differently-sized cabins and staterooms, from small and cosy single rooms to massive family suites with all the mod cons you’d expect at home.
Alongside dining options, on-board entertainment and itineraries, cabin size is among the most important factors for holidaymakers when selecting which cruise ship to holiday aboard. For those who like to spend a lot of time in the privacy of their own cabin, having plenty of space is of foremost importance – so knowing which cruise ships and lines boast the biggest cabins can help make the booking decision that bit easier.
And rather than sifting through brochures and websites, comparing cruise ship cabin sizes, we’ve done the legwork for you, compiling all the information in these easy-to-read tables.
