First timer on RCCL and researching an october canada cruise - usually get a balcony but looking at OV cabins - found a good rate but concerned about possible noise?  According to deck plans cabin 7178 is over the Boleros night club (port/aft) - I wondering how noisy it will be at night?  Looks like a latin band plays there in the evenings - not sure how late that goes and if music would be heard in cabin?


Any insight from RCCL experts greatly appreciated!


Thanks 🙂

If the price isn't too much difference, I'd pick an OV cabin on 8. Boleros is one of the few public event spaces... and 7 OV's are "obstructed view". You're looking at lifeboats.


Also, I'd pick a cabin that does NOT have the pull-down beds (cabins that sleep 3-4). They really cut into your walking space if the 2 beds are together in the middle under the window. The bump outs from the side walls are easy to bang into with your head or shoulder in the middle of the night!


Empress is my favorite ship. But you need to know it' s small and old, but the staff are FANtastic - the best in the fleet.
