Default Cabin Lighting

Most cruise ship cabins I have been in had the following lighting options; bathroom, bedside lights, some sort of desk light, and then all the other lights in the room. That often includes a pretty worthless florescent light over the balcony door / window. That means when I need to look in the closet I must illuminate the entire cabin. Perhaps a little more zone lighting could be provided, of course it would be pretty much prohibitive to retrofit existing ships but might be something to consider on new bulids

I have never found the lighting inadequate at all on any cruise ship or in stateroom. Perhaps to add lighting in the closets, but I don't think it is that necessary.

On P&O's Arcadia there are some bedside lights that are built in to the headboard, these lights define the term "useless".

I agree. I was thinking the same thing but then thought when would they be used.

I probably noticed it for the first time on my last cruise but Celebrity had night lights in a couple of the sockets.

Useful for me when I return late to the cabin as I switch off all the lights when I leave the cabin.

Probably didn't state my point very well. I think there are plenty of lights in the room just not enough control over them. You can't turn on just the lights in the closet area without bating the cabin in lights.

I agree the bedside lighting is pretty useless for reading (I thought it was just me.)

The florescent at the window is balcony door is pretty worthless too. I only really noticed my neighbors lights and realized my light was glowing on my neighbors as weel.

Great night idea they have on Allure of the Seas...The switch to turn on bathroom light is lit up, just enough so you can find it during the middle of the night if needed. Then there is some super low lighting in the bathroom all the time, you can only notice it at night and you can't turn it off or on, just enough that you don't need to turn on additional lights.

It depends on the cruise line and the cabin. On NCL there are lights in the closets of mini-suites and suites. The trick is finding where the dang switch is. Often it is in the very back of the closet or inside on the side.

I am also trying to remember but there were other lines where I had lights inside the closet.

It's a good idea to ask your cabin steward if the closet has a light.

Take care,
Mike
