Default Kelly Method - Is This A Good Or Bad Cabin?



First, I am a new cruiser, first cruise will be Carnival Inspiration on 8/15. I booked guarantee category 4A (inside stateroom). I just did the Kelly method and received the
'we are sorry your order cannot be placed for a guarantee room". Different message
from all the other rooms, so I'm assuming this is my room number. The room number was R32, which is oceanview. I hope this is truly my room, I would LOVE
to have a window. The room is the bottom deck and is WAY up toward the front of the ship. Is this a good room? I read on another board, that if you are near the anchor, it sounds like a train going through your room when they drop it. Is the anchor at the front or back on this ship?

I wish I could answer it for you- I am wondering about mine myself! I booked a gty 4a like you but on the 8/8 Paradise. My brief execution of the Kelly method and the back of my S+S application showed E4 which is a cat.5a, (portholes) wheelchair accessible room WAAAAAAY at the front. I heard that it's noisy. But from an inside to portholes is just fine by me! Congrats on the upgrade for you!

Having had a room on the front, I don't remember there being a lot of noise (music, talking and so on), but you definately hear and feel the anchor being lowered and raised. Loud jerking sound, but doesn't last too long. Just early in the morning is all. Also, one the RCCL magesty, We had a night of high waves whiched slapped the front of the boat and was sort of loud. Over all though, it was't too bad a spot to have. Hope this helps.

I also booked a Gty OV 6A. We were upgraded to 6C per Kelly Method and docs.

The only time the ship drops anchor is at a port thet ou tender into. The sounds are VERY lound, for like 2-3 min. If you dock at all your ports (not sure which stops you have), so it may not be a problem. The porthole cabins tend to be larger than the regular cabins, so you will get some extra floor space oout of the deal too!

Enjoy your cruise!

Ships are like teeter totters/seessaws. They pivot around the center. The most stable location on a ship is the gravitational center, which is usually just a little less than 1/2 way from the back of the ship, and the bottom floors. On either end of the ship, you'll experience the most motion (although that may be slight).
