Okay. When you dream of going on a cruise, you’re obviously thinking about having one of those amply sized staterooms with the gorgeous balcony. However, there’s one thing that’s true about all of those staterooms (and suites); they can get pretty expensive. This is what leads the budget-minded traveler to look into inside cabins from time to time. Sure, they may not offer the ocean views, but let’s be real: how much time (aside from time spent sleeping) are you really going to be in your cabin?
And, while we’re on the topic, here’s the other thing: not all interior cabins are that bad. In fact, some of them might be even nicer than the balcony outside cabins that you’re accustomed to! If you don’t believe us, then we’d encourage you to check out these 9 awesome inside cruise cabins, each of which is awesome for a different purpose. Perhaps after you’ve taken a look at what these cabins (and ships) have to offer, you won’t turn your nose up so much at the idea of staying “on the inside”. As a matter of fact, you might just pull the trigger and save yourself a boatload of money in the process!
1. Carnival Cruise’s Standard Inside Cabins
You already know that Carnival Cruises are about the partying, so why does it matter where you’re staying?
Anyway, you won’t miss anything by staying in their standard inside cabins, as you’ll have all the amenities the non-inside cabins have!
2. Royal Caribbean Promenade Cabins
Just because you have an interior cabin doesn’t mean you won’t have a window – just as Royal Caribbean!
The “Promenade Cabins” on their Oasis-class cruise ships offer views of the Royal Promenade, which everyone knows is the hub of the ship’s activity.
3. Holland America Interior Staterooms
Holland America is making a name for itself as a luxury cruise line, and its interior cabins prove this.
For example, their interior staterooms offer what many other cruise lines would consider a deluxe experience!
4. Disney Cruise’s Standard Insides
When it comes to family cruising, there’s no substitute for Disney Cruises. (But, these cruises can get pricey!)
That’s why you might want to save by going for an inside cabin. Well, wouldn’t you know that Disney’s inside cabins are among the best in the world?
5. Norwegian Cruise Line Studio Staterooms
Hey, not everyone is traveling in a big group! If you’re traveling solo, then you probably want to save as much money as possible.
That’s what makes the luxuriously appointed Norwegian Cruise Line Studio Staterooms so great. They’ve got everything you need.
6. Celebrity Cruises Accessible Cabins
If wheel-chair accessibility is a factor in your cruising plans, then you’ll find that interior accessible cabins on Celebrity Cruise’s Solstice-class ships to be top notch.

7. Royal Caribbean Virtual Balcony Cabins
It’s a brave new world that we’re living in, and the recent technological upgrades to Royal Caribbean’s line prove this.
Their Oasis-class ships now offer “virtual balconies” like the one you see here. It may not seem like much in the picture, but you’ll be impressed when you’re right in front of it.
8. Royal Caribbean Family Interior Staterooms
If space is an issue for you and yours when booking an inside cabin, then look into the Family Interior Staterooms aboard Royal Caribbean’s Freedom-class ships.
At just under 400 square feet, there’s plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. But won’t you want to be spending your time away from the room, anyway?
9. Costa Cruises Samsara Spa Cabins
When some folks go on cruises, they’re in it for the round-the-clock spa access. If this is you, then these are the inside cabins you want!
