Our last cruise was on the Mercury which was the first with a veranda. Now we are spoiled. We are booked on Millie, February 2002 in a Category 3 (#7202). I know we will love the larger cabin and veranda, but I am curious if the partition that separates the bedroom area from the sitting area cuts down on the enjoyment of the ocean when lying in bed at night.
We loved keeping the door open at night on the Mercury and listening to the sound of the ocean.
We just cruised on the Infinity in a category 3 cabin - 8183. The cabin is very large, and so is the verandah. The partition does close off your view of the ocean when you are in bed. We missed being able to look out and sea and hear the ocean.
Check out my web site where a number of photos of the cabin are posted. http://members.home.net/sf1776
I'm sure you don't know this, but we were informed that folks who keep their doors open at night help create a large indoor wind that howls through the corridors into the other cabins that do not have their veranda doors open. We recently experienced this on Mercury on a deck with all verandas & had to roll a towel up & place it in front of the door to try & block out the terrible whistling. I hope any who read this consider closing the door after a certain hour so as not to distub others. Hope you have a great cruise with no whistling in the night..
Just looked at your pictures and looks like you had a great cruise. I am curious about something. We have a corner cat. 3 veranda cabin reserved for Dec. on the Millie (same deck plans). I am wondering if you can see off the veranda. Your pictures from your cabin looked like a clear safety guard didn't obstruct your view. On the end verandas it looks like a big white guard would block your view of the ocean unless you were standing right up to the end. Am I mistaken. Anyone else who has been in this cabin have the answer. Thanks
We just returned from Infinity and stayed in corner cabin 9197. While the veranda is partially blocked, it is on a slope and you still get great views. You can still see off the veranda while sitting closer under the covered area near the sliding door. The fact that the corner verandas stick out further offer much more panoramic viewing than do the cabins in the center. To me it was worth having the partial slope in return for the panoramic vistas.
Thanks for the information. I was getting concerned that our great veranda wouldn't be of any use unless we were standing right up to the edge. Glad you enjoyed your cruise and I am looking forward ( 8months to go) to our vacation.Can't wait!
