Hi. This November, my wife, toddler son, and I will be going on our first cruise aboard RCI to the Mexican Riviera. Our travel agent first booked us for a large oceanview room in the front of the ship on deck 3. When we went to pay, she said there was a better room more towards the middle of the ship on the same deck (less rocking), so we took it. However, when I later looked at the deck maps, I noticed this was one of a few adjoining rooms. We won't know the people next to us in their adjoining room.
I've read on some other reviews that the walls are thinner in these adjoining rooms. Is that true? Is the door lock secure on this room? Is this common to be put in an adjoining room when you don't intend to open it up as if you had family to share both rooms?
I'm not sure if I should keep this room or go back to the original booking which was the farthest to the front of the ship, and would have 2 portholes instead of one large window.
I think you made a wise move, and no, you shouldn't have any more noise because its an ajoining cabin. It will be much easier to get to other areas of the ship being more midship, plus less moving...Enjoy!
I agree with Donna, I would keep the cabin that was just offered. Your son will love the window, instead of the portholes. I don't know about your ship, but some of the windows are almost like a window seat. We took two grandchildren (ages 6 & 10) and they loved the window seat that our cabin had. They would get their blankets and crawl up there and could see all the action. I hope your window is like this.
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
I've had connecting cabins in the past amd have RARELY heard anything from the other cabin....and even then, I had to listen very carefully to hear anything. I would keep your new cabin and enjoy the more convenient location.
