4 people in an inside stateroom
 
It will be myself, DH, DD13 and DD4 cruising next summer. At this point I just couldn't bring myself to pay $7300 for a veranda room with murphy bed so I booked an inside stateroom. I was really wanting the murphy bed for my DD13 as she is tall. How uncomfortable/crowded do you think we will all be? I did get a deluxe inside room with 200 sq ft. (Going to keep an eye out for oceanview rooms to open upP.

Do you really spend much time in the cabin other than sleeping? If you do, it might be an issue. If your cabin is really for sleeping and dressing--no problem. We actually prefer the inside cabin to the oceanview on the Fantasy. The virtual porthole is fun.

In all honesty...you will be crowded but it is doable. But..did you try pricing out two inside or oceanviewc cabins that connect with an interior door....more room, cheaper than a verandah. You would have to put an adult and one child in each room on paper but you and your spouse could sleep in one room and the kids in the other...if you wanted.

You could really get 2 inside rooms for less than the price of a veranda room??? There is a $1300 prices difference between the two categories.

Maybe. Price it out and see. What is the date you are looking at?

cmsnyder77 08-30-2012 08:31 PM

I am looking at August 3

Well, a stand inside stateroom for two people is $3,250 and a deluxe is $3,306.
Time that by two and it is still cheaper than the $7,300 for a veranda for 4.

Thanks. I never thought of it that way. That's something to consider for sure.

If you're doing a 7 day cruise, 4 people regardless of age, in an inside stateroom will get old real quick. We did a just 4 day when our girls were younger and I swore never again :faint:. You'd be surprised how much time 4 people spend in the cabin, just getting dressed for dinner, the shows etc. But that's just us each family is different. :cool1:

I finally get it!!!!!!!
 
Wow! I never understood the connecting room thing before (duh!) This is opening up a whole new world of opportunities! Thanks everyone!!!

:cool1:

You are welcome!!! Try this website for great deck plans....connecting cabins are shown with a >. Not sure what ship you are looking at but you can find the deck plans for all of them at the site below.

Twice the space and twice the bathrooms.....can't beat that!!

I did it!!!
 
I couldn't find connecting inside rooms last night but looked again today and did! It's crazy that the cost of 2 rooms is only $200 more than if we all 4 stayed in an inside stateroom (higher category).

Woohoo!!! I think this might work out great. Probably will let DD13 kind of have the 2nd room to herself.

My kids are younger, but we had no problem with a family of 4 in an inside room for 7 days. I'd only sailed with a verandah before and was worried, but the layout of the Inside cabins on Disney was well thought out and we never had problems. I am short but could sleep comfortably on either of the 2 additional beds - I believe they are standard twins.

We sailed in a verandah since and while I ENJOYED the extra space, it wasn't necessary - if we hadn't gotten such a great deal, I would have happily booked inside.

We were fine it was only for 4 days. On another 8night we had a veranda

That's how we started out Disney cruising career... In an inside cabin with 4 people. We hardly ever spend time in there anyway and as the kids got bigger, they could dress themselves so quite often not all of us were in the cabin at the same time except to sleep.

The only thing I insist on is no deck 2 and we have to have a split bathroom other than that, I'm happy with an inside stateroom.

Of course, a balcony is very nice, but we usually are saying that we didn't use it enough by the end of the cruise.
