ok mates your slipping, i posted this over half an hour ago and no response...shame shame.


No seriously Nancy can hold this till early morning tomorrow. I am not so thrilled with the fact its the FIRST floor but that with the elevator...im perplexed, but i do however want my son to go on this cruise (as the grandbaby will overtake his role as little one the next month) this room wont have a port hole will it?

Will we be happy, pleased, ok, or devastated?

should i shoot for a higher deck, evidently there arent a lot to pick from with triple cabins. i hate the front or the back of the ship due to motion of the ocean....so i might not have a choice. is there NO noise on this level or will the elevators make me insane.


Ok im rambling.

I think it's a good location. You mentioned the elevators, but you really don't get that much noise with the elevator itself. You have rooms above you, so they will make it better. It is in the middle of the ship, so you will be an elevator away from everything.

I say go for it.

We sailed on the Elation last year, Fantasy class ship, same as Esctasy. Our cabin was on the Main deck - 168, one deck up from Riviera. The room was great, you could see out the window, the window actually has a small ledge that was great for sitting in and watching the ocean go by. I will say this, there seemed to be a vibration most of the time, I would assume it was from the engine. We really enjoyed our room and the window. If we were to sail this class of ship again and was unable to go with a balcony (these ships have very few) I would not hesitate to book another one of these rooms. You can sort of see the ledge in this pix. I love the size of the ship and the open deck out the back of the Lido buffet, and along the buffet area, great place to sit and enjoy the view.

The cool thing about the lower decks is the waves sometimes come right up to the window. There is less motion and if you are near the engine you sometimes get some vibration like a gentle rocking. Loved it.

see the rocking is what makes me nervous lol.

I'm thinking of booking anyway, i really would rather sit with our group instead of finding myself at a dinner table with a group of people who either dont speak english or dont shower hehehehe

The rocking is more like one of those beds you put quarters in or like a massage mat. It would lull me right off to sleep. The actual rolling that causes seasickness is worse at the top of the ship, the bottom has much less sway. You should be fine, and after all your family has been through you deserve a relaxing cruise. Still praising God for your daughters health.

On both of my cruises, we were in the middle of the ship right near the elevator, once on the main deck and the other time on the riviera deck. We did not even notice any noise from the elevator and it was nice to be right by it when we wanted to get somewhere.
They are right about the motion, it's like being rocked to sleep. The motion is more noticeable higher up.
Hope this helps

As you know, we were on the Upper Deck, right above Riviera, and we felt 24-7 movement. But we were pretty forward.
