The base fare includes the cabin you stay in.
Overall, your cabin consists of a bathroom with shower, desk/vanity with mirror, closet, TV, house phone, and queen size bed, which usually can be split into two twins.
When it comes to storage, the bathroom has limited storage, but you’ll find more room under the vanity. To increase your storage, bring folding storage boxes for organization.
Next, specified cabins include pullout sofa beds or Pullman beds that fold down from the cabin wall or ceiling. These beds are great for kids because they usually have guard rails. Pullman beds might a bit uncomfortable for adults, but many people make it work.
The stateroom also have a small closet where you can store your clothing and luggage. Sometimes the luggage will fit under the bed. There is not a lot of storage space, so you will need to be mindful not to bring too much stuff.
Additionally, the TV feeds live video from the ship cameras, info about excursions or activities on board, TV shows, news and movies, and a map showing the current position of the ship. Staterooms don’t normally feature DVD players.
Most modern cabins have in-room safes, where you can put valuables or documentation. Just don’t forget the combo!
Some staterooms have mini-fridges for drinks. Normally, this depends on which class of cabin you book (like a suite).
However, you won’t find microwaves. Since there is food available almost all hours of the day on a ship, there’s no need to reheat food.
Occasionally, cruise lines offer robes to use on board (but they’ll charge you a hefty fee if you take it home with you).
