If you're outside on the deck tanning and baking how cold will it be on the inside of the ship with the air conditioner on?

Put a shirt on, you’ll be fine.

so will the rest of us

If you're baking, you'll definitely notice the difference. Wrap, cover up or t-shirt will keep you comfortable when venturing inside. In general most of the common areas are kept at a medium temperature. I'm usually chilly in the MDR and theatre, and always take a sweater or jacket to those areas.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of interesting people and information here. Hope you have a wonderful cruise and be sure to give us a review when you return.

I agree with the previous posters. I love to bake outdoors when cruising, but as soon as I step inside, I’m quite chilly. A coverup is fine, and I adjust quickly, but the MDR and theatre are always really cold to me and I have to wear a sweater in those areas.

It will also depend on where you have your thermostat set as each cabin has its own temp controls

It always irritates me that in hot climates, inside air conditioning is set to run so cold. Actually, that is one complaint, or used to be, here in Alaska, like up at Fairbanks in the winter, except the opposite, the outside air temp could be running minus 45 for weeks yet the inside of buildings were like saunas.

Knock on wood, but we never have had temperature problems in our cabin. If we come back and the Steward set the thermostat down we just set it back up to a comfortable level. Since we always have a balcony, we just stand or sit out on the balcony until the cabin temperature readjusts. I then adjust it down a couple of notches cooler just before we got to bed.

I certainly agree with the theatre temperatures. In the morning the ship's voyage enrichment lecturer is usually scheduled to give a presentation. I get there early so I can get a seat up front, unless I put on cold weather gear I am freezing before they even begin. Stayed in the Hilton on Waikiki for a week, last week, after a cruise South Pacific cruise. One evening we were seated in their primary restaurant and the temperature was so cold it was ludicrous.

Just got off an over three week cruise in the South Pacific, I like hot tubs. But it is difficult to get them to set the temperature at a reasonable level. One two day stretch they had them set at 107 F, which is enough to take the hide off you. I accused them of planning on cooking the lobster in them for dinner that night. I was wrong, we didn't have lobster that night but I was correct, they could just about have done the lobster or any shell fish in them.

I was thinking of that carton Penquin.

Bonnie, how are you able to bake in your an igloo?
