That was a great review. Were you in Cabin 1514? That is our cabin on up-coming cruise.
Will the balcony take a lounger (or 2?) as we did on our D1 cabin on the Navigator last year?
Any other comments on the cabin?
We were in a D1 on Navigator; on Jewel
, I was in 1512 and our best friends were in 1514, so I was in your
cabin! Anything you need to know, just ask.
As a simple comparison, the E1 cabin is the same exact width as the D1- it's just not as deep. In other words, there's not enough room for a three cushion couch in the cabin, but instead there's an outsize chair (maybe 2 people could squeeze into it?) in the sitting area- does this give you a sense? (There's also a silly little "coffee table" that we quickly moved off to a side- it was not a logical addition to the room.) Otherwise, everything is the same size- bathroom, dresser area, bed, storage space, etc. The balcony is the same width, but it seems bigger as the overhanging roof doesn't completely enclose it- you have a better view of the stars!!! As for the lounger (?)- I think if it fits on the D1 balcony it'll fit on the E1 balcony, but where did you get the lounger?!?
The balcony has two chairs, and a smallish table.
I hope Rex is still your cabin steward- he was excellent! (he'll probably be out of rotation by then)
Think of the Jewel
as Navigator-lite! No Promenade... or ice skating... but plenty of beauty and art and gorgeousity!!!!
