We have many ät sea¨ days and want to experience this ship to the fullest.
We have booked an aft-facing ¨sunset view¨category balcony on deck 8.
So I guess we may not be allowed to use the ¨Blu¨restauramt eventhough the cost of our cabin was a few dollars more than that of the äqua class¨cabins. Is that true?
Hmmmmmmmm? We are just curious about any random thoughts others may have that may add to our cruise experience. Thanks in advance.:razz::razz:
We were in cabin 8351 (SV) and it was great. You will get a little bit more motion, but it's wonderful to watch the wake as you cruise along. Do watch where you sit, as a little ash can fly off the stacks and land on your balcony; just depends on the wind direction.
In addition, there is very little "over hang" so you will get more sun than the average veranda -- my wife loved sitting in the sun out there!
No Aqua class with these cabins; we've done AQ on the Solstice and it's great having a change of pace, but the MDR is fine.
All the alternative restaurants are wonderful. Qsine is fun, but very, very filling (avoid the meat ball tray -- Yum, but too much food). Muranos is very upscale, but worth it. Love the Tuscan Grill. Make sure you eat a lunch or two at the Bistro on Five -- we always eat there on embarkation day and avoid the rush in the buffet.
During one at sea day there will be a "Brunch" in the MDR -- not to be missed!
Let us know if you have additional questions.
