Should I ask for a change of cabin - too much sun!

Recommended Posts

We're cruising in December from Rio to Buenos Aires.  North to south, summer down there.  Our cabin is on the starboard side, aft, and I realized that we're going to be getting full sun in the afternoon and we hate the sun 🙂  FWIW we'll be on Oceania Marina with a veranda.  I've considered contacting 'my guy' there and see if we can get a comparable cabin on the port side.  Any opinions? TIA.

Well, on the port side it would be full sun in the morning.  Six of one...EM

You’re liable to have it pretty much all day.  Me, I like the sun and would keep the starboard cabin; you, I think you should contemplate changing if yoy want to avoid having it all afternoon.

ASK for room darkening curtains/shades.  Most ships have an upholsterer on board and likely could sttich some up for you if they do not  have any ready-made

Oh, sorry.  I wasn't clear.  We'd like to be able to sit on our veranda.   🙂

But also not as hot in the AM.  And we'd likely be off the ship early and back later.  Only one sea day.

We just chatted and decided that we're more likely to have coffee on the veranda in the AM.  And it will be cooler than the afternoon.  So we'll still with what we have.  Do you think I should report this thread and ask them t delete it?  Thanks y'all.  Cath

Good decision....

 

Leave the thread alone and see how long it takes for the discussion to morph into something totally unrelated to the title’s subject matter!  See, I’m already doing my part.

I’d recommend leaving the thread as it’s a good illustration of decision-making considerations.   Might help other cruisers who could be processing factors for their own cabin selection.
