The BEST and WORST Decks to Book for the Disney Treasure

Not all Disney Cruise Line cabins are created equal.


With the Disney Treasure setting sail on its maiden voyage this December, many travelers are planning trips on the newest ship of the Disney fleet in 2025. Amongst them, some cruising newbies and even veteran travelers are likely wondering what kind of cabin — and on which deck — they should book for their adventure.

Choosing a cabin to cruise can be a bit more complicated than one might think, so we’re here to help. Taking into account everything we know about the Disney Treasure, plus experience on other Disney Cruise Line ships including the Treasure’s sister ship the Disney Wish, we’ve narrowed it down to what we think are the best and worst standard stateroom (no concierge or massive suites here) options.

The Best

Our pick for the bestselling would be a Deluxe Verandah Stateroom in the midship section of deck 8. There are several reasons to go with this room type in this area of the ship.

For starters, the verandah is a must-do if possible. Yes, it’s a bit of an upcharge, but the extra space makes the cabin feel considerably larger, and offers wonderful ocean views and a beautiful sitting space when sailing or docked, plus — as we’ll get into below — it’s very helpful for seasickness.

As for the cabin’s overall location, the midship of deck 8 is right in the “middle of the action” as it were. It’s located in the middle of the ship, about equal distance from the Great Hall and all its venues including cafes and retail that span decks 3-4-5 below, as well as the above-deck amenities including the pools and etc. upon decks 11-14. The midship location also includes easy access to both elevator banks and the staircases. In addition, deck 8 is home to Fairytale Fresh Laundry, meaning that you won’t need to lug clothes too far to get some done.

Finally, this location provides some of the best possible relief to seasickness. The verandah allows an influx of fresh air into the room, as well as actual views of the water which help dissipate seasick feelings for many. In addition, the location in the middle of the ship cuts down on the amount of rocking and movement you’ll be able to feel, which should cut down on queasiness.

While this does get our pick for best, there is one potential drawback: There will likely be a decent amount of foot traffic outside your room given the aforementioned proximity to so many of the ship’s amenities.

The Worst

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have our pick for the worst cabin option on the Disney Treasure: An Inside Stateroom toward the aft of deck 2.


This style of room, located in the lowest deck of the ship to feature state rooms, not only doesn’t feature a verandah, it doesn’t even have a porthole or window. This can make room feel quite claustrophobic. In addition, the lack of an outside view can increase feelings of queasiness and seasickness.

Furthermore, being located all the way down in the bowels of the ship, the area is comparatively far from from all the ship’s internal and external amenities, making it a slog to reach almost any of them, even with the elevator. There’s also a noise issue, as the hum of the engines is more audible lower on the ship, especially toward the aft portion.


However, in compassion to our best choice, Deck 2 does offer the “perk” of not much foot traffic at all, since it’s so far from the popular common areas, which definitely matters to some passengers.

On board the Disney Treasure, families will discover seven pools staggered among tiered decks, an abundance of luxe lounge chairs, an imaginative take on fast-casual fare with a festive character twist and a thrilling water attraction, AquaMouse, in an expansive district themed to Mickey and friends.

While these are our opinions on “best” and “worst” options, they’re obviously open to conjecture. The “perks” that are worth extra money to some may not be so to others, and the same can be said for negatives that may be deal breakers for some and not matter to others.
