I am about to leave next week on my 2nd cruise on the Fantasy. When I booked my vacation with my PVP, she told me there were only two staterooms available in the category I had selected on the Empress deck, One was at the very back of the ship and one was right in the middle. I chose the middle. She then preceded to tell me that it was a handicapped room. I told her that neither myself or my boyfriend were disabled and to give the room to someone who needed it...we would just take the back of the ship. She told me she would put me in the handicapped room unless someone needed it and she would change our stateroom if necessary. She said I might enjoy the extra space and if it was going to be unused anyway, just to take it. So, I am wondering...has anyone booked a handicapped cabin before? What were the advantages/disadvantages? I am a little worried because it is right next door to the information desk on the Empress deck and I'm not sure how noisy it will be. I will be fine if my PVP decides to place me in another cabin, especially if someone needs it. She assured me she would do this. I am a very able bodied 32 year old that can do without the extra space...I'm just trying to get some opinions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
