Cruise to Barbados-Choosing your cabin

Cruises to Barbados


You choose between "run of the ship" or a "perfect" cabin.  "Run of the ship" cabins are a bit like flying stand-by.  You're not assigned a room until the week of departure, but this option is usually less expensive.

"Perfect" cabins are allocated well in advance and you are allocated the exact type of room you request.
