We are sailing in early August on the splendor and have taken up the offer of a cheap interior cabin (just the two if us). We are at the front of the ship.

Should I be worried about position or is there anything I need to now?

Thanks

They are on the ship so thats all that matters

2nd class cabin is better than a 1s class swim

Not sure what you mean Fishtaco.

There is no second class as a passenger on cruise ships nowadays-just was on the Titanic.

As far as the Splendor, we have had everything from inside, porthole, OV, to balcony and other than sunlight and a place to sit by yoursel f(we need neither), I think an inside would be fine. We had a porthole-2221- on the Splendor and the noise and the shaking when the anchor went up and down was horrible, but I think you will be fine if you are not in portholes forward on the Splendor. We LOVED the ship-clean, lots to do, and people make a bigger deal of the pink than it is. You will have a ball!!

The anchor noise is only on a day pulling into a port, doesn't last long, but makes a good wake up call. In any inside cabin, people spend less time in them.

Thanks everyone.

We are looking forward to seeing another part of the world and on past cruises spent very little time in our rooms (awake anyway)

We thought asunder $600 each for 7 nights it was a great price (the Aussie dollar being greater than the us$ for the first time ever helps to)

I hope you have a great cruise. I am giving you a couple of websites so you can familiarize yourself with the ship and other stuff you need to know. Hope it helps you.

Just curious-have you been in the Splendor cabin(I am only talking about the Spelndor, not other ships) I was or that area forward? We had it happen pulling into ports and leaving-I was in the room when we were leaving about 4 PM and it was unbelieveable!! It was so loud that I could not hear the TV at its loudest and it last 15-20 minutes each time.
Also, most times, we were going into ports early and not neccesarily when we want to get up. Everyone in our area said it was the worst they ever heard on a cruise ship and would not book 2221 forward again.

Not on Splendor, but have been in portholes on other ships. I knew the noise would happen, but for that noisy time, it was worth the price I paid for the cabin.

Do you know your cabin number and deck or are you just a guarantee?

We are flying over from Perth early June for a June 10th cruise on the splendor and I will go take some pics for you of the location.

Are you going it alone or doing the Casinos and Sombreros deal offered by Australian TA,s?

We couldn't get the deal in June because it was peak season but its pretty cheap for the nights in Vegas and the cruise including flights,I think the deal was around the same price as I paid for flights alone!

I cant believe how cheap the Splendor is but we started with a cheap inside like yourself then went to a balcony then aft extended balcony not as cheap as my first price but still way cheaper than what it would cost me in Australia.

I agree- the clock is so you dont sleep whole mornings away when you should be out and about. THe cabin is extreme darkness. (when we sailed the inside we used those tap lights. the bathroom light turns on from the outside of the bathroom and the door is opened and gawd is it bright. Leaving the door opened for light though the door will swing open and shut with the movement of the ship.

Where is your cabin located-- what deck. BE VERY careful of what is above you, below you and beside you

Can you not put the TV on the ships forward camera on Splendor? We usually leave the TV on all night ships view and when day breaks the TV lights up the room same as light from a window (well almost) but works quite well.

Not sure if the Splendor has front ocean view camera?

Some of the cheapest cabins on the Splendor are upper and lower bunks, so one of you may have to climb a ladder.

Also, the music from the shows can be very loud if you are over or under them.

Some of the websites show these cabins with two single beds that can be made into a queen, but that is not accurate, so check it out ! We were in 6227

I have not been on the Splendor, but have had many inside rooms, including portholes. I love them, especially for the price. I never noticed any extra noise in the porthole other than waves crashing, but then I don't spend a lot of time in my cabin.

Thanks for the replays guys

We are in riviera deck room 1221 so only other rooms above us.

We are flying in from Melbourne australa the day before and staying on the queen mary the night. There are four adults and one 11 year old in tol ove three cabins.

We have been told our room can be made into a king. If not I will be the one up the ladder.

The tv idea sounds lie a winner!!!!! Will be setting the alarm just in case!!!

My fiance and I were in an inside cabin on the Splendor 2 years ago. We had room 1248 (which is also on Riviera Deck) and it had 2 twins that converted to a king. We loved our room and never felt like it was too small - in fact, we commented several times that it was more roomy than we expected! We didn't have any trouble with noise of any kind. One night, the sea was a little rough and we felt quite a bit of rocking but that doesn't bother me much and on the smoother sailing days it wasn't bad at all. Here are some pictures of the room for you!

We sailed the Splendor twice and both time the kids got the inside room on Empress Deck mid ship. They like it a lot. They leave the bathroom light on and open the door just a crack to use as nightlight.

Most of the time you are out and about...so if you could save some $$$ for the inside room, go for it. Use the money for excursion or buy FCC for your next cruise.
