Where’s the Captains cabin on a cruise ship?

An odd question I know but when perusing cabin layouts for a possible future cruise the thought occurred to me as to where exactly the Captains cabin would be.

I sort of assumed he would have one if the “better” cabins rather than being confined to the bowels of the ship with the rest of the staff. There were no obvious “holes” in the deck plans for the decent cabins that I could see.

Anyone know the answer?

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)

I do not know, butvwould suspect his suite would be high up with direct communication to the Bridge, probably on a deck with only limited, if any, "public access".

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I bslieve they may have a day cabin near the bridge for times when they want to be readily available and the larger one where they have more of a proper living space.

Not sure. That's only on the basis of what I have read in novels, I think.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

Oh yes. I hadn't thought of that. Oh well I don't mind the diversity.

It’s a question I asked a 1st officer on one of our cruises, on our ship it was “palatial and adjacent to the bridge for obvious reasons”, was his reply.

I did get lost on board one day and ended down in the staff decks, their cabins were shared and resembled broom cupboards.

That is why they are referred to as 'lower deck' [crew]


The Captain's and other Officers' cabins will be on a separate deck or section of one of the upper decks, probably aft of the bridge.


Andy, you would have more chance of finding out where and what the Captain's cabin is like if you wore shorter skirts. Come to think of it that might also get you invited to the 'lower deck' quarters.

I knew someone who worked on cruise ships years ago. Apparently it was instant dismissal if you were caught “Poaching live cargo!” Quaint phrase eh?
