Default Quiet time on Ships

Just curious. Is there any such thing as quite time on the ship?
I was wondering if they have a certain time that you have to lower the volume if you are partying on the balconies or in your room. We are a group of 26 and are planning on making the most of our cruise. We do know that you have to be considerate of your fellow cruisers.
BTW we are not all young kids but a very mixed age group from 20's to 60's, but definetly going for a good time.

really out of respect for cruisers the balcony is not place for a party; some peeps may be getting up early for shore excursions, etc;
however, many parties can be found or started on the pool deck once you have closed the piano bar and disco! we had a large group several years ago and would stay out on the pool deck til about 4:00 am; it was a blast! in fact, several people pretty much never left the pool deck until breakfast was being served; if the party is totally out of control you should have no problems

We will keep that in mind about the noise.

We were told about taking down the partitions to have one big deck to party on in the evening though. I think this may be done a lot if you have the all of those on the back of the ship?

I guess I should have mentioned the fact that our group has all the very aft balconies. And several other nearby rooms, both balconies and IS.

A little off subject I guess, but since I am usually an early riser, I loved getting up between 4 & 4:30am and going up to the top deck with a cup of coffee and nobody there except the crew "swabbing the deck" It was just so relaxing in the middle of the ocean with the wind blowing.

Croooozin, that sounds very relaxing! I am usually an early riser, but not that early, lol. However I think I may have to try and get up that early just to check out the sea and to have some quiet time aboard. I think I would enjoy being able to relax on deck feeling the wind blow through my hair while the stars are still out.

ATAB and Croooozin:

Although we are a little of track, I agree with the getting up early and just sitting quietly.

We have done that many many times. My husband's favorite story is the time we were cruising and I got up early and went to the Lido deck and had coffee. He got up and also went to the Lido deck with his coffee. We were sitting quietly enjoying the breeze and calm ,when we both looked over and saw each other. He came over to my table and we laughed for a long while. We never knew we were on the same deck just across from each other for almost a half hour.

That is how relaxing it can be

we party and run aroud alot too on cruise, but you should usually just do it somwhere besides on your deck with people who might be slepping... so just take your party to a main deck thats what we do!!

Have fun on your cruise!!!!!

We sailed on the Liberty last May and tried to open the balcony dividers to make a large balcony only to find out that you could open only one partition without blocking access to the cabins. This is because of the design of the ship.The balcony doors are either to the left of the cabin or to the right not in the center as on celebrity ships. I hope this plan works for you. Please review the Valor whenever you return as we have a group of 20 or so going in april of 09.

Thank you so much for the information

We are on the Aft of this ship, so it may be set up differently than the side balcony cabins??? I am not too sure about this, but I did get a reply back stating that the Aft(back) of the ship can be opened up to one large balcony.

I will let you know.

As long as you are not loud going to and from your cabins, there really is no quiet time. We were always very cautious of where we were loud and where we were quiet, this is also why we usually cruise on the lower decks...not as many partiers like ourselves running around to get from point A to point B.


Have a GREAT Time!! I have to get through boot camp before I get to go on my next cruise....
