Cabins in cruiseships are not created equal; however, you don't have to book the highest-priced cabin to have a comfortable cruise. The following cruise lines offer something a bit above the ordinary for the kind of prices the typical cruiser can afford to pay.
Carnival Cruise Line. Over 50% larger than industry standard and with plenty of storage space, Carnival cabins are spacious for two and surprisingly roomy for families. Newly upgraded, higher thread-count linens are a nice touch on Carnival's new Comfort Beds.
Holland America Line. Comfort is key, and all cabins have beds with plush Euro-top mattresses and deluxe linens. DVD and CD players, flat-screen televisions, lighted magnifying make-up mirrors, and baskets of fresh fruit are unexpected luxuries.
Disney Cruise Line. It's no surprise that cabins are suitable for families of two, three, four, and even five---they were designed especially for them. Whimsical Disney touches in the decor are sure to delight passengers of all ages.
