Any thoughts on this cabin vs a owners suite for 4 people? Noise? Balcony etc 

 

thanks 

 

Seriously?  8394, now called a 2 bedroom grand suite, formerly known as a royal family suite - two bedrooms, two bathrooms.

 

How can you compare that to one bedroom, one bathroom???????

 

(and aft balconies are fabulous) (I had the equivalent suite on the Mariner for 46 nights.  HEAVEN)

Few are as lucky as I was to sail on the Mariner "around the horn" from Port Canaveral, Florida to Los Angeles (San Pedro), California.

 

Trip of a lifetime!

No, it's certainly not ! I've had the formally known aft RFS a few times and their amazing !!

The obstruction is the superstructure that you can see at the aft of the ship.  Some do not like it and say it feels like a construction site.  We have stayed in aft cabins many times and do not have an issue with it at all.

I would have directed you to my huge thread from my trip, but alas, my photos were on photobucket, which means that they disappeared when the website changed its terms.  😞  

 

Here are a few pics, though.  These don't show the superstructure, but gives you some idea of the size of the balcony.  This is half & half.

We were on the last leg, boarded in Valparaiso. Great trip and got us hooked on longer is better. I remember the ship being somewhat empty with the third level dining room shut down. happy cruise resumption.
