Marco Polo: "Cabins" Antarctica Hotel Tip by toonsarah
Antarctica Hotels: 43 reviews and 80 photos
When booking a cruise one of the big decisions is which type of cabin to choose. This has a huge bearing on the price you will pay. The difference between a standard inside and outside cabin can be as much as £500 per person, and when you start to look at more luxurious rooms and suites the price really soars. We knew we wouldn’t be spending a lot of time in our cabin so we chose a standard inside one. It was small but comfortable and had everything we needed, but I did miss having some sort of view of the outside world – it felt quite claustrophobic and if possible another time I would find the extra money for an outside cabin of some sort.
Unique Qualities: We hadn’t been on a cruise before (or since) and were impressed by the level of service and attention we got. The cabin steward was so friendly and helpful but we never felt overwhelmed by attention. And despite regularly returning to the cabin in damp outerwear and those smelly Wellington boots, the place was always kept clean and welcoming.
Address: the Pacific deck of the Marco Polo!
Comparison: about average
Price: US$180 and up
