Cabin Layout

An Outside Cabin is an improvement upon the Inside Cabin, with views of the sea.


Slightly misnamed, an Outside Cabin does not have any outdoor access, rather it is located towards the outside of the ship's hull with views of the outside world. A bedroom, the entrance hallway, and a bathroom leading off the hall, occupy 165 square feet. You can upgrade to a Superior Outside Cabin that uses a similar layout in 200 square feet.

Bedroom

Beds can be either two twin or one queen and occupy most of the room.

Bathroom

The bathroom has a shower stall, a toilet, and a sink, arranged into a tight configuration.
