Default Cabin No. - Good or Bad?

We booked a guarantee cabin and looks like we have been assigned the very first cabin on the main deck (M4). I really don't care where we are, as we probably won't be in the room much, but I was just wondering what any advantages/disadvantages would be too being that close to the front of the ship. This is our first cruise and are so excited!

Thanks!

Hey, should be very easy finding your cabin, eh?! What ship are you going on? If on the Celebration or Jubilee, it looks like that cabin M4 is slightly larger then other regular sized cabins. So that could be somewhat of an advantage too. Not sure how accurate that is, but just from the looks of that cabin in the catalog it looks a little larger, however I have never been on that ship nor a cabin that looked like it may be larger.

John,
The main thing that yopu will notice is that there will be much more movement up there according to the seas. In addition you will not need an alarm clock at any port that you have to anchor at. Believe me, if they drop anchor you will get up! <> It sounds like a train coming through your cabin!

Hi Mjohnson,

Which ship are you sailing on? And do you suffer at all from sea sickness? Depending on the size, you may feel more motion with some of the smaller vessels. The larger ships shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Enjoy your cruise!

How true Jim! I totally forgot about the anchor!

I had a room up there once (RCL Nordic Empress) and you definitely did not need an alarm clock, ha, ha!! All that banging and clanging - oye!

Take Care,

Cathy in NYC

oh my! I hadn't even thought about an anchor! this could be VERY interesting! We are on the Celebration....I don't get motion sickness, but my husband does, and we plan on taking preventative measures for that!

Thanks for the info!

Yep. When my daughter and I sailed on the Jubilee in July of 02, we a room near the front. We arrived in Grand Cayman at 4:00 AM instead of 7:00 AM because of a medical emergency on board. Nothing like being jerked out of bed at 4:00 Am to a loud jerking sound, thinking you are still at sea. My 15 yr old daughter was terrified tilwe figured out what the deal was.
