How early in advance should I book my Disney Cruise?

Where is the best cabin location on the ship?

The best cabin – or stateroom – on the Disney Cruise Line is a matter of preference. The most desirable staterooms are located mid-ship on the upper decks closer to the pool.

The staterooms can be broken down into four types:

  • Inside
  • Oceanview
  • Verandah
  • Concierge

Within each of these are a number of “categories” available that indicate a variance within room type, such as standard or deluxe, a type of verandah, or the location – by deck or area of the ship.

Based on your preferences, our agents can help you choose the stateroom location that best fits your needs and budget.
