Default Switching Cabins

Hi Everyone,

I booked 2 balcony cabins (next to each other) on the Golden Southern Carribean this summer for my family of four (mom, dad, 2 teenage sons). I understand the way they book them is 1 parent for each cabin. Of course, we will want to change that arrangement and have the two boys together and the two parents together.

My question is: I have heard that the card you get on boarding is your room key, ship credit, and identification. Will they change room assignments on check in so that everyone has a room key and appropriate identification or will we have to go through the cruise with incorrect room keys.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks Mike,

I was starting to get worried that I was going to have to spend my time chasing down everyone to get in the room.

debp... I did this with my two teenage sons last year (two cabins). You can change the cards at the purser's desk, no problem. I also got an "extra" key card for my sons' room. I wanted to be able to get into their room if I needed to without having to find one of them. It gave me peace of mind when I went to bed to know that they were both in the room and I didn't have to call them and wake them up to find out. Yes, I know... my teenage boys went to bed before us each night!

OH, another thing... I learned this on the message boards... tell the cabin attendants that your boys are sharing a room and they should contact you if necessary (hint hint). I also spoke with the couple on the other side of my boys and let them know that they should call my room if the boys were loud or disturbed them in any way. We didn't have any problems, but I felt better letting everyone know up front that I expected my boys to behave and to be respectful.

Have fun!
