Need advice on picking cabin on Explorer

Recommended Posts

Hello

My husband and I are considering taking an Eastern Caribbean 10 day cruise on the Explorer.

 

We are thinking about an F2 or F1 cabin depending on location.

 

The ship is almost sold out for this particular cruise, and we aren’t interested in Western Caribbean and want to try the Explorer l.

 

Here are the choices

 

F2

forward cabins only on deck seven-705, 708, 709

 

F1

two available on deck 7 both mid ship -732, 733

 

F1

below pool deck on deck 10- 1020, 1018, 1021 or 1023

 

can anyone offer insight into any of these cabins and their location? Noise, etc

 

thank you!

Take cabin 733; leave the cannoli.

 

Deck 10 gets noise from above. Mid-ship is better, and starboard is on the same side as the laundry.

Agree that you would not want to be under the pool deck.  We have sailed on Explorer several times and feel that deck 7 - either forward or midship should be fine.

 

Enjoy your Explorer cruise (she is our favorite ship)!

Another vote for Deck 7 in preference to 10.

Try the resource SuiteGuru in the “sticky” for reviews of suites in similar locations.

Have a great cruise 😎

 

PS: If this is your first Regent cruise, you might consider moving up to Concierge grade, D or E, to obtain earlier excursion & dining bookings; plus take a look at the Ambassador Programme.

We were just on the explorer a couple of weeks ago.  We had cabins 1014 and 1016.  Occasionally there was noise from the pool deck but it was very minimal.  Guess it depends on your itinerary. Our Itinerary was port intensive so we were up and out early most days.  We have booked deck 10 again next year on the Splendor

As a followup to Flossie009 there is also a sticky entitled "member referral credit" which would also be helpful if it is your first cruise. Enjoy!
