Default Is this cabin location good or bad

I just got notice of where my cabin will be...i'm on RCL Brillance-#8672. It's at the tail of the ship, only 4 rooms back there....is this a bad cabin? Anyone who has cruised and been in these rooms in the back end, give me some advise. Thanks

Sounds like a good cabin to me, we don't mind being in the aft portion of the ship, have fun! Been on both Radiance and Jewel, both just beautiful ships and I understand Brilliance is tool.

Catsandra:

I think you need to give that cabin to me and get another one. <VBG>

You have an excellent cabin! The stern balcony cabin has a wonderful stern view and a balcony that is about four times larger (deeper) than the other Cat D cabin balconies. These cabins are IMO some of the best on the ship. I had one on Serenade of the Seas (Sister Ship) and loved it. I think you will too. I had no problem with motion, noise or vibration, so I don't think you will have to worry about that.

Enjoy yourself, the cabin and the cruise.

Take care,
Mike (Who loves stern balcony cabins)

Once you cruise an aft balcony, you will be hooked, and never
go back to a "side" balcony. The difference is similar to moving from
a ocean window to a balcony. We have occupied aft balconies on the
Radiance, Rhapsody, and Conquest, and the next step up is the corner aft balcony.

Happy cruising

You should have an excellent cabin. I have done two side balconies (RCCL Enchantment and CCL Legend). I was happy. Then....I did NCL Sun aft balcony. You will be hooked! My next is HAL aft. I am taking NCL Jewel in January and decided a bow balcony just to see if I like it and also, the balconies are much larger on the bow than what was left to choose from. Don't worry, you will love the aft.
