The Myths of Cruising: Busted


Myth: Cruise ships are claustrophobic.

Cruise ships nowadays are built with passenger comfort in mind. Gone are the days of small, cramped public rooms. Nowadays, it’s easy to find large, spacious, multi-deck rooms built with the purpose of creating an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. You will also find that many modern staterooms designs are very similar in size and design as a typical hotel room found ashore. Plus, if you ever feel “trapped,” it’s easy to recover by stepping out on deck and breathing in fresh sea air. Result: Busted
