Which Cabin Type Should I Choose on RC?

Choosing the right cabin for your family, can be overwhelming. There are SO many choices, especially on the OASIS class ships. I hope these descriptions can help you make an informed decision.

You’ll see many options when you click on each category of cabin. You’ll choose GUARANTEE or you will pick your own cabin. You’ll need to select FWD (the front of the ship), MID (middle of the ship), and AFT (back of the ship). One you select one of those options, you’ll choose the deck that you’d like. You might see an “upgrade” price to move to better location.
