We are considering booking our first cruise in July, going to the Fjords in Norway with HAL. It will be on a new boat, the MS Koningsdam. We would like to book a Verandah Stateroom and are now figuring out what would be the best room for us.
Import for us is:
- Because it is our first cruise, we do not really know if we will have a lot motion sickness. Therefore we tend to book a room in the middle of the boat
- I am a light sleeper, so not too much noise is important
Not so important is:
- We do like to walk, so it is not a point if the room is 'further' from anything
- Size of the balcony. Well, we would like a nice size balcony, but it is something we are willing to compromise on. And, since we are going to Norway, the weather might not be that great.
We have found some VC category rooms on deck 6 which we like and that are within our budget. They are near the elevators, so there will maybe some noise from that, but I think these rooms might suit us best.
I would be greatful if others want to share their opions on this, or want to give their suggestions for rooms that may also be good for us.
Thanks in advance!
