Glad I found this thread! I am booked in a studio cabin in October 2018 for the 8 day Mexican Rivera. Long long way off, and this will help the time go by

I chose a location on 17 that has cabin above me (port side). I don't foresee any issues. I have had this location on other large ships and really liked it.
I was on starboard side once( below the Haven Rest.) and did hear noise. It wasn't horrible, but annoying; assumed it was chairs moving/sliding.

..making deck 17 to have pros and cons; the cabins located under the deck 18 Haven Restaurant has no onlooking neighbours but a sometimes occupied restaurant. The bump outs for the outdoor Haven restaurant and the port side (public?) sun deck are more of a concern to those deck 17 Haven cabins located more to the back of the Haven complex. More forward will have to deal with deck 18 looking down on them?

In design terms the smaller superstructure of deck 18 makes sense regarding making Bliss not too top heavy.

I'd love to see them carry over the Go Kart concept from the Joy to the Bliss, but that represents a good bit of real estate on the top deck, which I'm sure the sun worshipers would not want to forfeit !

Sorry to be such a noob, but what is an FDR?

Good to hear. So, and admittedly I've only been spot reading, there is a planned Go Kart track for the Bliss... or is that just speculation at this point?

Thanks.

It's certainly fitting that FDR would be President.

Same here! Although I am hoping by that time I might actually be in a relationship if not I am hoping to find some friends to come along since we are on the west coast and it'll be the year I turn 30

Following! Thanks for putting this thread together! I'm booked on the November 2018 Caribbean cruise. I haven't followed a ship being built (that I was sailing on) since my first cruise on the Breakaway! It was so exciting to watch the ship come to life, knowing that I'd be on her in a few months time.

The Everything... threads are the best! Thanks again!
