Default Emerald Princess....Baja Deck, question

Hi Everyone,

I couldn't resist....I paid to upgrade today from Ocean View on the Plaza deck to Balcony on the Baja Deck. To those who have gone on this ship, was that a good idea? I know that I could have possibly been offered a cheaper upgrade as the date approaches, but I was afraid that it might not happen. We are sailing Dec. 20 - 30....Caribbean Medley, with 6 ports of call.

Feedback anyone?

Alison

Which Baja cabin? We love the Baja deck, but we prefer mid-ship to aft. Going from a window to a balcony should be a good deal though. The Baja balconies are covered which we really like. You will be looking down on other balconies but no one is looking down on you. Leaving the door open a bit at night and listening to the sounds of the ocean is the best!

Hi, Colorado Alison.

We had cabin 214 on Baja deck, port side. We love the Baja deck, as the deck above and below is all cabins, so you don't have to worry about any public space noise. As huebie said, the balcony is fully covered. I think you made a good move, as the Emerald is a new ship and would most likely sail near full capacity....so your chance of an upgrade may have been unlikely. Have a great cruise!

Default Thank you for the info!

I am glad that I made the change, and to that specific deck (as you mentioned the privacy of the balcony). We are booked in Stateroom 501...it is midship. Last year we went on NCL Jewel, and we were on the 10th deck, close to the front of the ship....so it seemed there was always a long walk to the cabin. Hopefully midship will work out nice.

Thanks again!

Alison
