Yes on the Breeze three times. It made a long balcony for all of us.

The walkway is a white metal walkway that extends from the bridge over cabin 7210 and a bit of 7214.

Unless you think it will hinder the view from your balcony, this seems like a non-issue. It does not seem to be an area accessible by passengers. I'm guessing it is for crew to have access for window washing.

You may want to get the doctor to say if you can mix the patch with Dramamine. I would use both without a pharmacist or doctor saying so

You can always ask your cabin steward if they will open it for you. Like I said, I don't think it's a matter of them not being capable of opening, I think it's that they are not supposed to open them because the partition will block the door of one of the cabins. You can always ask and see what they say. However, there are always a fe w exceptions where balcony partitions cannot be opened because they physically won't open (like when the partition is actually a permanent fixture like steel) but I doubt that is the case for the balconies you booked.

Quite possibly, there was a problem with connecting rooms when you booked and this might have been the best available. No way to know now but at least you have the connecting door.

As for the motion sickness, Dramamine does nothing for me--it is too much like Benadryl. I have to take Bonine, which is prescription Meclizine, and I do pretty well with it. My doc won't prescribe the scopolamine patches for various reasons. So pick up some Bonine and see if that helps. GinGin candies also soothe my stomach as well.

Its a holiday cruise and you're going to have a great time.

Re Ginger.. I don't suffer seasickness so have never tried this, however a friend of mine swears by it!
She cuts a small piece of natural root ginger and puts it in her belly button and covers it with a bandaid .. I know it sounds bizarre but she swears it works

May be the case. Your correct having the connecting doors is a benefit for a family of 5. Especially since our eldest two sons are 16 and 19 and the size of grown men. Then we have our late in life gift who is 6 (turning 7 very soon).

I will definitely take pictures and write a review for future cruisers.

We will make the best of it. And it is a Christmas sailing. We were pleasantly surprised how well CCL decorated the Breeze and had Santa appear in the main atrium on our last CCL Christmas cruise.

Happy holidays.

On amother forum they were talking about sea sickness and so many people said they had excellent results with a product called motioneaze. On my next cruise Iím going to try the patch but Iím also going to be taking some of the motioneaze with me. I already have Dramamine on my packing list.

I was so scared about getting sick on our first cruise in April but I did fine. I took Dramamine twice a day. Just as a precaution and I started it the day before we got on the boat. I also brought a Sea band but didnít use it. Iíve heard they are better than Dramamine.

I am prone to motion sickness big-time and also sensitive to drugs. For a while I wore a Sea-band BUT was sick as a dog on the open seas to Cozumel. So I tried the patch. A miracle but it made me a little woozy. Now I just cut the patch in half and change every three days. We just had heavy seas coming back from Mexico. I had no problems at all. I put them on about an hour before sailing. Good luck!

I took ginger candy on my first cruise, not knowing whether or not I would need it. I did not but my roomie did. It worked great and tasted really good. You could always try some before the cruise to see if it is tasty enough. Some people swear by ginger ale so if you can take a bottle, that might help. HTH...

If you opt for the Sea Bands, know that the two in the package are for one person. One band on each hand. I saw many people on our last cruise with one. As mentioned before try Meclizine. You can get it (US) behind the counter at any pharmacy or even on Amazon.com. I got it at Costco pharmacy this year. Much less expensive than Dramamine or Bonnie. I start taking in the morning prior to getting on ship and take each morning regardless of how the seas are. I have never missed out on activities even when we were walking sideways. You might want to read this article about the patch before having your child use it.

Talk to your doctor about dose for children. The pills that I have got before are able to be cut in half and are chew able. Good luck..

This is the first time I havenít believe it or not. Except for a few times when my parents have cruised with us and my mother requires a accessible cabin. But even then I find out which cabins are open for her then select hers first since they are limited and then select ours.
Again hard lesson learned.
