Enchantment of the Seas Suite Below Windjammer - OK?

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of booking on Enchantment of the Seas - the suites are mostly below the Windjammer Cafe.  Our concern is that it will be loud...footsteps, chairs moving, etc. from above.   If anyone has been in those suites, would you give us your feedback?  Thanks!

We had GS 8540 on a cruise in 2015, which was underneath one of the side dining areas of WJ.  We are EXTREMELY laid-back cruisers and generally are not fazed by "little things".  We go expecting to have a great time and that attitude generally means we DO have a great time. 


Having said that, when we finished the cruise - having had a wonderful trip - we both agreed that there was more thumping noise coming from above us in the early mornings than we cared for.  We assumed that we were hearing carts being moved around pre-breakfast, although can't be 100% certain  what all the noise was.  


Over the years we've had (hotel) rooms that were uncomfortably close to elevators and/or air conditioners, street noise, staff utility spaces, etc.  We've managed to live with all of them with no real reason to complain.  ("The worst day on vacation is better than the best day at work.")  So for us to agree post-trip that there was more noise than we'd hoped for is pretty significant.  We just don't normally let this kind of thing bother us.


Our bottom line was: the cabin did NOT ruin our cruise and if our ONLY choice was to rebook the suite or skip the cruise we'd definitely rebook w/eyes fully opened and know we'd hear more noise that we'd prefer to...but if we could have a do-over we would have booked a different cabin that didn't have early AM WJ traffic coming through our ceiling.
