Keep your finger crossed that we get a good room-----we couldn't pass up the good price for a 14 day Guar Balcony. Hopefully its not bunk beds we couldn't do the climb we would just have to sleep on the floor

I'm not sure the slots would be an issue. There is a small stage and there is music at times, but that is in the center of the casino and not port or starboard, so that may not be an issue, either. I don't recall how late the music went.

Miracle 4141 and Paradise U176: Any obvious problems with these that I may not be aware of?
4141 has the French Doors. If I don't do a 1A next time on a Spirit-class, I may go for one of these. Doors open but there's no balcony because the lifeboats are right in front of you. Seems like a great deal. Should be over the outside promenade deck, so shouldn't be any noise floating up.

On Paradise, I've never been that far to the stern on a Fantasy-class ship; I've either been midship or forward. Between passenger decks, so shouldn't be noisy. And the farther forward or aft, the less foot traffic in the hallways. Convenient to the Serenity Deck, then on up another deck to the Lido buffet.

Sounds good. I know I talked to my PVP to try and get one of those french door cabins that's in between 2 lifeboats so we can have a bit of a better view. I've never stayed in the aft section of a ship before either, but it seemed it was close enough to mid that it should be fine and we've never stayed on the upper deck before, only main and riviera on fantasy ships. Thank you for taking the time to respond! I hadn't thought, nor noticed that it would be a convenient location for Serenity and Lido areas, that's definitely a plus!

We've been on the Triumph Lido deck twice. It's wonderful. Good size rooms, not noisy, convenient to everything. You will really like it!

Hello all!

I've just consulted the website: www.deckplangenius.com to find out if there are any problems with the 2 cabins that I have booked on Voyager of the Seas.

Thankfully, both have been given a good review!

Just thought I'd share this website with you all who are also wondering about your cabin selections.

Happy cruising!

This suite is under the ping pong table. Rousing games two nights in a row on our May cruise to Bermuda. Neighbors in S006 were also woken up in the middle of the night because of the noise. Better to book closer down the hall nearer the Neptune Lounge.

I've come across this site when googling to research a cabin. Imho it gives generic information, I have got much more useful information from the people who post on this forum.

Conquest.....Cabin 2433 needs to be added.

Not bad...just under more of the kitchen than the dining room.

This adds to the noise level and the smell level.

I was awaken at 11:30PM to the strong odor of french fry grease.

Strong enough to wake me up from a dead sleep....

what side are you on? we had the odd number rooms and heard nothing.

if you have an even number room-- depends on the location..

here is some reading if you have these two cabins
