We knew we were in trouble when the cabin stewardbrought us an empty ice bucket. I asked what it was for, and he said that sometimes the room made people sick. To this day, if hubby and I talk about that room, we start laughing.

The room number was R240

Better known as the room with the vibrating bed, no quarters needed.

We were in R157 and I know exactly what you mean Luanne. Rock the boat don't rock the boat baby.

We will never stay on the Riveria Deck again.

It was like having a baby. Now that it is over, it didn't seem so bad.

I tend to go with inside cabins. First off, we're generally only there to sleep, change, wash up, etc. And we're not claustrophobic so that's not an issue.

I get quotes for inside, outside, and balcony. Then I look at the differences between those numbers, multiplied by the number of family members. Often the difference between inside and balcony is $1,000 or more (there's more than two of us).

And then I think...what shore excursions could I buy for $1,000? Or what art could I buy for that much? Or what gemstones/jewelry?

So we always end up on the inside.

Well... I think my sister and I may be in biggg trouble.
Through a series of upgrades and alot of excitement, we found ourselves booking the Penthouse Suite (cat 12) for our very first cruise.
I already suspected it was going to be hard to downsize on our future cruises, but after listening to all of you.... I'm afraid, I won't be able to book anything but the Penthouse...
And believe me, I'm not exactly rich.
