Cabin location for Explorer of the Seas

Recommended Posts

I booked cabin 8630 on Explorer.  Have not been on this ship in ages and was wondering if this location is good.  Usually on a higher floor but last time we ended under the buffet, lol.  Thanks for any help.  Also, besides the extra room is there any advantage to booking a Junior suite.  On Anthem you got to eat in the special restaurant, The Kitchen, which was really nice.

There's no advantage to being on a "higher floor" than 8.  Deck 8 is 3 down to the Promenade, 3 up to pool/windjammer etc.  Pretty much perfect :classic_smile:

No CK on Adventure, nor suite class.

We stayed in a panoramic room on Freedom, deck 12.   They have the same on explorer.   We loved having the big windows and didn't miss a balcony.   Cabin 1864 is kind of odd shaped but has a lot of extra room.   You have 5 windows from floor to ceiling so it really opens up the room.  There is even enough room to sit  at the bottom like a little window seat.  We were one floor up from the pool deck and had easy access to the stairs and elevator.  The only issue we had was when we were pulling into port we would feel these strong vibrations but it wasn't for too long.

Thanks Bob was thinking about booking suite for the pool section but it was more than twice the amount of balcony.  So no go, lol.

Merion Mom really dont know much about the cabins.  Is there a certain one that is better than the other?  Maybe since it is so far out it will be available, lol.  I am on 8630 but I guess I could change.

 

Thanks for any info you can give me.  We have not been on a cruise in about 3 years and not on this ship since it left NJ.  I do remember how helpful you were when I would come on here, thank you.
