I called the Ramada Plaza Resort this morning and they told me that when I get there tomorrow that I am only picking up the cruise voucher. They also said that we will not know our cabin location until we get to the ship. Is this true? I looked at the layout and there are not many inside cabins that have 2 lower beds - not real crazy on upper/lower.

If you look at the cabin count on the legend it looks like only 12 of the 167 inside cabins have just upper and lowers. There are a number with double beds (but those look like they'd be real crowded!) and lots with 2 lowers (which my guess can not be turned into queens, the pics we've seen of the cabins have the beds folding from the wall)

The 4 deluxe suites at the very back of the upper bridge deck facing the rear have balconies.

If the cabins hasnt been altered in anyway, there is no real balcony cabins. There are four cabins with "balconys" in the aft, but the only thing with these is possible to open the windows in a room seperated from the rest of the cabin with a glassdoor. I have never experienced any of these "balcony" cabins myself. I'd rather go for one of the up-front deluxe cabins.

If I am reading the deck plans correctly, there are for passenger lifts in addition to the two in the central atrium.

It looks like forward lift does not go to the top deck, the others hit all decks.

Thanks for letting us know. I had been a bit anxious and would still love to see some room shots. However, I called the reservations line and asked what my cabin number would be. I was concerned I'd be way low (even though my old cabin was on A deck), but I got what I feel was a small upgrade. 6th level - 6113. Still interior, but looks a little bit bigger than what I was anticipating.

I was poking around the website and noticed that on the bridge deck there are category 4 cabins (Suites apparently) 7402, 7404, 7406,7408 and 7410 that have single a lower and an upper! Not sure if this is a misprint but if it is true I would be HUGELY upset to be assigned on (I'd also be a little unhappy with the 2 cat 4's at the back of that deck with the double beds to unless I was traveling alone!) I think the cabin designations are left over from the ferry days and I doubt these "suites" are very suite-like compared to the industry standard. She was a north sea ferry after all, my guess is brace yourself for breath-takingly small cabins!

Anyone else notice the open decks up top seem AWFULLY small? I guess we'll have to wait for the reviews but meanwhile I'm getting less and less impressed!

I'm getting claustrophobia just reading about small inside cabins

I'll let you all know in a couple of weeks when I return what it was like.


My first cruise...and it's on an old ferry.

*rolls my eyes*

The Pearl will be LUXURY compared to it, I'll bet

did some poking around myself.....so....we got the "free" cruise with timeshare presentation....I'll bet we get this room. Oh crumb...



star inner cabins (W2/W4


These inner cabins are the most inexpensive and are located on Deck 1 under the car deck. They are modestly furnished with two, three or four berths (upper and lower). Each cabin has a sink and mirror, while showers and WC are located in the corridor.

These cabins that you mention here was not bookable back when she sailed from Oslo to Denmark for a few months last year, i have serious doubts that they are open now. Atleast they are not on the deck plans iv'e seen of her as Bahamas Celebration.

Sheesh.

I want the Regal Empress back
JMO-but I think you're making way to much of the fact it is a converted ferry. Even if you were sailing the Empress, if you boarded expecting the amenities of the Pearl (or any other mainstream cruise ship) you would be setting yourself up for a letdown.

From what I've seen, the BC seems more like the mainstream ships than the RE does (and I enjoyed the Empress)

These are among the cabins that are listed on their website *shrug*

OK, yes, but other than this 'ferry' has a car deck, what other difference do you see? And I doubt that deck will impact your cruise at all

So unless you know something I don't, I don't understand your concern.

Actually, I would like to change my previous answer to this question.

No the Empress was not originally a cruiseship. She was an ocean liner. A subtle difference but I don't want to offend the aficionados
