An inside cabin is just that: a stateroom that’s located inside the ship with no window or porthole.

These are always the least expensive cabins and are ideal for passengers who would rather spend their vacation funds on excursions than on upgraded accommodations.

Inside cabins are generally just as spacious as the smallest outside cabins, and décor and amenities are similar. On the newest vessels, you may even find small refrigerators and a cozy sitting area, though you’ll usually find only a chair rather than a small sofa.

To give the illusion of more space, inside cabins may have a mock window covered by curtains. On a few newer ships, inside cabins have a “virtual” porthole or balcony, giving a real-time, computer-generated view of the great outdoors—something that can go a long way toward alleviating the claustrophobia of not having a real window.
