I'd like to tell you my experience with the same connecting cabin on both the Solstice and Reflection. I had the same cabin on both ships -- 9276, on the hump. We booked this cabin on the Solstice for Christmas, 2011. Great location. External connecting door. We loved it, until... The young man in the cabin next to us decided to have a party the first night beginning about 11:30pm. We waited to complain to Guest Relations but with the loud music and balcony door open, we just could not sleep. After GR asked him to quiet down, the young man came to our cabin and told us that he was 21, he paid a lot for his cruise and he was going to (expletive deleted) party. The next night it was quiet and then around 3:30am on the third night, he had another party. We complained again. Fourth night, after another 4:00am party, we were moved to an aft cabin when an ill passsenger left the ship
Wow. My first thought was that I thought someone over 25 had to be on the booking.
Next, what happened to common curtesy? Does he think the rest of the passengers got their cruise for free? Besides, there are areas of the ship that stay active. What amazes me is that security wasn't a little more forceful with him about allowing others to enjoy their vacations.
I will admit, I probably would have turned up the TV and slammed the door a few times when I work up at 6am. I have some neighbors at home, and we like to cut the grass starting about 7am just after one of their late night parties. Chain saws are pretty good for that as well.
Carnival Elation Dec 2010 almost turned me off cruising
