Default FO room 6200 on ADV

This is the first time we will have gotten a room in the front tip of the ship (normally do mid-ship).Will we feel every wave and hear everything in the Imperial lounge? Cant tell if the lounge is directly below or not. I'm a light sleeper but will have ear plugs !!!

Default monarch 9072

just upgraded to this cabin (for a song!). any one have any feelings one way or another about it? when i spoke with rci rep last night there were numerous cabins left in superior oceanview.

ALSO. does anyone have any photos of a superior oceanview? this is our first time sailing rci so i'm not familiar with any of the cabins. aside from what is shown on the website, and i know that a standard ov doesn't have a sitting area like the layout claims.

Room 8060 on Majesty...

Nice location on the ship. Close to the elevators and a few flights of stairs to the pool and W.J. Obstructed view but the window is right between two life-boats.

The Spectrum lounge is at the end of the hall on this deck... 4 night Bahamas cruise during spring break. 2 nights out of 4 we were woken up by intoxicated co-eds leaving the lounge and knocking on doors. It was fun watching them lick their wounds the next morning...

We are planning 2 PR cabin on Adventure of the Seas. Does anyone has info or picture of cabins 8553 or 8561.
Also, is there a lot of motion at the back of the ship?
How about cabin 8690/8692 or 8390/8932? Those are aft balcony cabins. Any picture?

Thanks

Hope that helps.
We were in 7579, 2 levels directly above Pig & Whistle. While you could hear the music, it was not loud at all. We never went to bed early anyway and would do a Promenade room again in the future. The room seemed to have much more room than any inside we were ever in before.

Default LOS Aft-no lounge chairs

We just got off the Liberty of the Seas in 7708 corner aft. Would not allow lounge chairs. They said they changed their policy and do not allow the LOUNGE chairs anymore. We had 3 in our room and I had to talk to 3 different people to get just another regular CHAIR! Very disappointed because that is why i booked this room so I could lounge on the balcony.

Default Allure/Oasis--Most Forward Cabins??

Has anyone ever stayed in the most forward cabins on the Allure or the Oasis? These are oceanview cabins that look out over the bow of the ship. I'm curious to know what did you think regarding motion, noise and such and which deck you were on. Please share!

Default cabin selection RC Enhancement of the Seas

Our family (of 4) is going for the first time and i have put a cabin on hold, deck 8. Is this an ok spot for a large inside stateroom?

Any tips for the newbies?

I am worried about being sea sick though, but still want to try it out.

Thanks!!!

I think the best place to avoid any motion of the ship is a mid deck and a cabin in the middle section of the mid deck. Take some sea sickness tablets for the first couple of days until you get used to what little motion there is and supplement it with some ginger - works a trick for me. Have a wonderful Cruise.

Default Rhapsody of the Seas deck 4 cabins -any issues?

We are considering booking a cabin on the Rhapsody of the Seas 7Night Sawyer Glacier cruise leaving Vancouver on 16 May. RCI seem to have reasonable prices on G2 large ocean view cabins on deck 4. But I notice that there are a string of cabins on the starboard side which seem to have remained unsold now for a while. Are there any particular problems with these cabins? I have read that there may be some noise issues with the casino and theatre being above these cabins but have not noticed any actual problems reported in the forum. Appreciate any comments you may have and whether there are any problems with these cabins.

Another query - what difference is there, if any, between the various cabin grades G1,G2, H and I cabins? Looking at the floor plans they all seem to be the same. Is it simply the location on the ship that determines whether a cabin is G1/2, H or I?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
