Just noticed TA changed our cabins!!!

Recommended Posts

We're on the Oasis, Jan 28th sailing. Our cabin numbers were originally L 6535, and D 6164.

I paid the final payment yesterday and when she sent the confirmation I noticed the cabins were changed to L 6546 and D 6545.

 

Is there any difference in these cabins such as size, location ect????

I don't know anything about Oasis, but just by looking at the numbers it looks like they'd be in the same area, just more "together" than before?

Yeah, I noticed this as well. Just wondering if there's any noticable difference in the actualy rooms.

Did you tell your TA she could change cabins without letting you know first??

Could you not just ask the TA why the cabin numbers were changed. As per the previous poster, it looks to me that you were moved so that you had cabins closer together than the ones originally reserved.

Yes, ages 17,15 and 7.

 

Thats the reason then, minors, under 21 can only be booked into cabins next to or across from their parents/guardians, looks like when the time came to make final payment and the kids ages were entered the original cabins would not work

No way! She sent over the last quote which was $104. more than original quote. We argued back and forth about this until I told her there's no way RC could increase my price after I've already put down a deposit. She then called back and said they took it off.

 

I then recieved my final quote after my payoff and the cabin numbers were different.:confused:

This does make complete sense. Just wondering why she would change them without notifying me. No biggie. Just wondering if there was a difference in the cabin sizes.

The cabins are going to be the same as before, just in a slightly different location, the TA should never have tried to book them apart in the first place

That's good to know.

 

She originally wanted to put us on different floors, but we said no way.

Good job it was caught, you may have been denied boarding, or made to put an adult in each room

She had it set up already with an adult in each room. Which is why I don't understand the reason for the cabin change :confused:

Maybe she originally tried to get you rooms together, but they weren't available. So when she made final payment, she checked again and was able to get them together! She probably just did it to be nice, knowing that you'd rather have rooms near each other! :D

Your original two cabins would have been on opposite sides of the ship 6535 is starboard side, and 6164 is portside. Now both are not only on the same side, but almost directly across the hall from each other.

I did call as soon as I noticed. Recived her voicemail so left a message. Sent an email as well...no response.

 

Just wanted to find out if there was a reason to sweat it when she finally called back. Doesn't seem to be a big deal now that I know there's no difference in the cabin sizes.

 

I'll still find out exactly why when she calls back.

 

Umm, I don't understand. Why don't you call your TA and ask why it was changed?

This knda stuff is why some of us no longer use TA's, I book my whole party myself and then I know that the only fingers that will be mucking around in my reservatin are my own! I can find just as good of a deal as a TA can, and I trust myself more.:)

 

I got screwed by a TA in 2002 on a cruise, and I haven't used one since. I'm not saying all TA's are bad, but some are awful!:eek:

Are you aware that you went from an original set-up of a double balcony and triple interior cabin to now a triple balcony and double interior?...and you now have a cat N interior, not an L....are you sure the cabin #'s posted are correct?

What doe this mean???? The cabon numbers are L 6546 and D4 6545...Is this a bad thing???:confused: Only 2pple for the interior and 3 in the balcony?

I noticed that she changed that when they raised the price of my cruise. She said that wouldn't allow 3pple to be in a large interior stateroom. Which I told her was BS cause they wouldn't have let it go through initially.

6545 is double capacity Cat N cabin....6546 is a Quad capacity Cat D4....this is probably why you noticed a price difference....you category of interior cabin changed as well as the triple on you original resi were booked into an interior...now the triples must be booked in the balcony...either change could bring price changes as the 3rd and 4th in a balcony are usually more than in an interior. What this means is that 3 of you now must sleep in the balcony cabin....so if the plan was that you and your husband would be in the balcony and the kids in the interior....that wouldn't work anymore.

I noticed that change and asked my TA about it. She said that really wouldn't matter that the 3 could still sleep in the interior. Should I call and demand she cange my rooms back to the original? Are the rooms a different size then the originals?

Both the interior and balcony are still the same size...however the pullout sofa is now in the balcony cabin....you can't have 3 sleep in the interior as there are only 2 double beds. Your original interior had 2 double beds and a Pullman (bed that drops down from the ceiling).

WHAT?!! Ok I'm calling her now! Don't understand why the hell she would take it upon herself to change this!!

If you want the set-up of you and your husband in the balcony cabin and your kids in the interior....you will need to have a double capacity balcony cabin and a triple capacity interior cabin....sounds like your TA is a bit mixed up.

Original cabins:

Cabin 6535 is category L interior and holds up to 4 people.

Cabin 6165 is category D2 balcony and holds up to 2 people

 

New cabins:

Cabin 6546 is a categroy N interior and holds up to 2 people

Cabin 6545 is a category D2 balcony and holds up to 3 people.

 

A category N cabin is usually less expensive than a category L cabin. It sounds like they didn't really take off the extra $104 dollars. It sounds like they downgraded your interior cabin from L to N instead.

 

Unless you want one kid sleeping in your balcony cabin adn the other two across the hall, you need to talk with your TA about getting your original L cabin back or getting another interior cabin that holds 3 people.

That is not correct.

Also, your original D2 cabin 6164 connects to the balcony cabin next door. If possible, I'd try to keep D2 cabin 6546 since it is not connecting.

tab1220...I just checked availability for your sailing....the problem now is that there currently aren't any triple or quad interiors available....only triple and quads available are balcony cabins like you now have.

I know you are trying to be helpful:)....but you are confusing the categories...she never had a Cat D2 either before or now.....both balconies before and after are Cat D4

All,

 

Apologies. Cabins 6164 & 6546 are D4 cabins not D2. Colors are very similar on the deck plans so I messed up.

If it were me, I'd feel a whole lot better having my 7 year old in the same stateroom with me and DH, and let the 17 & 15 year olds have their room across the hall. I'd be afraid that the two older children would sneak out during the night and leave 7 year old alone. :eek:

There is one large interior stateroom showing on deck 3 but that wont work with the balcony

My least costly suggestion at this point (if you are looking for one) would be switching to 2 Boardwalk balcony cabins.....there are actually a couple of connecting Boardwalk balconies where one cabin is a double and the other a triple.

BTW....I found where the OP's price difference came from....it indeed was cheaper for the 3rd person in the interior than in the balcony...that is what raised the price.
