Default Explorer of seas cabin size/location

Can anyone give me details about the Explorer of the seas cabins. I'm interested in category DB on the 7th deck mid ship. Are the rooms roomy at all and what about the balcony,is there an overhang as to where it prevents you from actually going out onto the balcony. I was told that all of the cabins in the "D" series are all the same size and that some of the balconies have an overhang or a walkway to the balcony that actually prevents one from actually walking out onto the balcony and being able to look over the rail onto the water. Are the DB cabins on deck 7 larger than the other DBs

Jim,
Glad I could be of some small service. Have a great cruise and I think you have made a wonderful honeymoon selection. My wife and I sailed our first cruise in 1984 for our honeymoon and now every cruise reminds us of that special time and special feeling.

Best of luck on your coming wedding.

George in NY

Hi Jim,
Just another thought about Labadee, we did the waverunner tour and had a blast, but I also noticed people were parasailing all day as well. Have fun what ever you do, the lunch on the beach was also very good, just beware of the merchants in the shopping area, they can be agressive, just say no.

Jim,
If you are into beach many enjoy hitting St. John's while in St. Thomas. St. Thomas has become so commercialized in recent years that we stay away from the Town itself for the most part and often head for Megans Bay by Taxi. We also walk over to the tram ride ( about a block from the ship ) and take it up top for a great view of the harbor and the ships coupled with a cocktail or two. An interesting one time tour that we loved was the Atlantis submarine. This gets booked up real fast. Provides a nice boat ride out to reefs where sub is and a nice dive to about 100' down in a submarine designed for this. Then a ride back with some rum punch.

In San Juan we usually either walk Old San Juan which is where you dock and stop in the Wyndam Hotel across from where you dock for some time in the small casino they have there. We also enjoyed the Bacardi Rum Factory tour. NOt exciting just a liesurely way to kill some port time. The factory is not all that big but provides a nice bus ride through San Juan and a couple of tastes of some great rum drinks. Most find the Rain Forest tour long, hot, and unrewarding because it takes so long to get there.

IN Labadee we took the wave runner tour which we loved.

We are in upper Westchester County near Bear Mountain, where upstate are you?

Donna and George,

Thanks both for the ideas the waverunner sounds like fun as well. The other suggestions are the ones we were leaning towards also.
ONLY 12 DAYS TO WEDDING AND ONLY 18 DAYS TO CRUISE

We are by Rochester, NY in the Finger Lakes area.

Thanks Again,
Jim

We sailed on the EOS in September. We stayed in 7296 which is almost exactly mid ship. We had plenty of room (even with my overpacking!). There is a lot of storage spaces and the balcony proved to be a wonderful spot for morning coffee and pre dinner cocktails. There is no walkway or overhang. It's just like stepping onto your deck at home. I know you will have a perfect vacation and we will definately pick a similar cabin next cruise.
