Ok, I am not sure how you were 'allocated' a room without your knowledge of the room number or where it was on the ship - any good T/A would discuss this with you, but that aside, there is no noise from the lifts - this is a brand new cruise ship. the lifts open inwards so the passengers walk out of the lift and then have to do a 180 degree turn to get to the corridor. You have a room on the 'hump' which is highly sought after so surprised this room was available. I have myself had a room in exactly the same location and did not hear a peep.

....Unless of course you booked a 'guarentee' cabin where the T/A should have explained to you that you have no say over what cabin you are given and the location. Either way you have got a great room and location IMHO.

I also booked last minute for October (next week) and was not given a cabin number by the T/A, all they could guarantee was that it would be a balcony cabin and RC would allocate and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite on Deck 10 aft portside, 4 cabins from the lift, which is great for us because my husband is recovering from a leg op and we wanted something close to the lifts and food areas as his walking is not great yet. So I guess it is a bit like last minute package where you are allocated on arrival only with a better outcome!

We always go nearest the lift/stairwell as it's less to walk & we've never experienced noise.

Make sure you both sign up for the meet&mingle then! Go to royalcaribbean.com - then customer support/faqs and under 'onboard' you will find instructions. RCI throw a party if more than 25 people register.

I would like to know where I can find a deck plan or elsewhere. As well as, figuring out what the alphabet has to do with the cabin catagories such as, H,H,I,L,M,N and Q.

All deck plans and descriptions of various staterooms categories can be viewed on the RCI website hope this helps.

Put Me Through To Your Manager!

Put Me Through To Your Manager!Isn’t taking a holiday supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience? – well you certainly would not think that if you knew some of the complaints that people actually make. Have we lost our sense of humour and our common sense? Are we so much into the ” If there’s blame then there’s a claim culture “?As a cruise consultant I speak to lots of people who for the most part enjoyed their cruise and can’t wait to book ...
