Choosing a cabin- first timer!


Recommended Posts

Hi! I have my first cruise on hold with Royal Caribbean until tomorrow morning. It is a 7 day Caribbean cruise on the Liberty of the Sea. I have two questions, please bear with me. It departs out of Miami on August 15, 2009: I'm excited and nervous.

 

1. I have cabin 9575 on hold, could somebody take a peek and see if this is a good cabin? Here is the deck plan so you don't have to go search for it. CLICKY

 

The other cabin I am considering is 2327, which one is better? 2327 is $100 cheaper.

 

2. Is the Liberty a good ship? A friend recommended it, but I have not done extensive research.

 

Thank you so much you guys! I'm excited!

I would choose deck 9. I would not want to be down on deck 2. I have not been on the Liberty yet, but on the Voyager Class Deck 2 felt really far away from everything. Plus, do you really want to have to take the elevator 9 decks everytime you want to go to the pool or the Windjammer?

Since it is only $100 difference, you made a good choice.

 

I personally don't mind Deck 2 at all. If it were more $$$, I'd choose that one. I always feel lower is better anyway. It's a personal choice.

 

Have fun. I read the Liberty is a great ship. I'll be there in October.

I'd save the $100 and take the cabin on deck two. And, unless you are handicapped in some way, DON'T take the elevator anywhere. We have stayed on deck two 3 times and loved it each time. Contrary to what others suggest, we take the stairs everywhere we go. The little bit of exercise will do you wonders. About the only time we take the elevator is if DW is in high heels for formal night.

We've had cabins on deck 2 on other ships and if you can at all afford it, the higher deck is more than worth it. There are plenty of opportunities to use the stairs on a cruise like this and since the pool and buffet is 9 floors above deck 2, most people down there will use the elevators. The elevators are notoriously slow on cruise ships, no fun waiting around. Our general rule is we use the stairs if we have 5 floors or less to travel, otherwise we wait for the elevator.

 

Deck 2 we found we felt like we were staying in the basement. After a couple of those experiences, we swore off deck 2 and now choose the highest deck we can comfortable afford, usually a deck that has cabins above and below.

 

Have a great time on your first cruise!
