Cabins in the Launch: There are various cabins in a launch; Single, double, family and VIP AC / and non-AC cabins. Regular single and double cabins are the simplest and cheapest, with few common bathrooms shared by 20-25 cabins.

VIP cabins always offer the best facilities, including a big bed for two adults, a European bathroom attached, a private balcony and some seating spaces. All VIP cabins are located in an isolated zone of the ship. The bed in the VIP cabins varies from queen/king to twins from ship to ship. Of course, this is the most expensive class on the ship.
