Hey Bee’s! So, since this upcoming Fall with be the start of my LAST year in college, my close group of friends and I decided that this upcoming spring (of 2016) we’ll go on a cruise! I’ve never been on one, so I am very misinformed, but I need so help because of some added drama (of course). Here’s the deal.
I love my friends/roommates. I really do. They’re great, my bestfriends. But I can still acknowledge the fact that they aren’t perfect (and neither am I) and I will be SO IRRITATED if I have to share a room with them. The issue is that a lot of them get very, very intoxicated and make it a point to get so drunk that they’re throwing up. If they’re occupying the toilet the whole night, I can’t use it. One of my roommates also is planning on ‘hooking up’ with many different men, and will bring random strangers back to the room. I am not okay with that (when my property is in there). While I enjoy my fun and drinking, I also like my sleep (so does S.O) and we usually crash a bit earlier then everyone else-they stay out very, very late (I’m talking 5-6 in the morning) and I don’t want to try to be sleeping and have them drunkingly walking into the cabin when we’re settled for the night. We are just too different to be sharing a room, and I think it will lessen possible drama if S.O and I get our own room. I have told them that we are doing this, and while some are okay and understand, others are saying, ‘Well, if we don’t have even numbers, someone is getting put in your room. That’s just how it is.’ However, I’m not okay with that. I don’t want to sound spoiled, because I’m not, I’m paying for everything in college. But if I’m paying for a bigger room then everyone else, and I want to have my own room with my S.O, that that’s not open for discussion. It’s my money, and my choice.
We’re looking to sail on carnival, and I was wondering if you could get an ocean view room that is just meant for two people (like one bed). My worry is that everyone will do ocean view (and put four people in each room) and that there will be some odd people out, and since we’re all paying the same price, they’ll slide their way in to the oceanview S.O and I will be in. I figure if there are ocean view options that just are meant for two people, they wouldn’t be able to stay in ours because it’s just equipped enough for two people.
Any insight or advice? Sorry if this is confusing, I’m just trying to do what I can. Can anyone offer advice to tell my friends if we all end up in ocean view, and my S.O and I just want our own ocean view, instead of fitting two or three other people in there? I love my friends, but after living with them for two years, I know I cannot share a cabin with them without someone being incredably unhappy. Any insight would be great!
