We are planning a cruise in Feb. I ma curious about the difference
between the DB cabins and the D7. The DB cabins are mid-ship, but the
D7 is about 15 sq ft bigger located aft and forward. Which is
preferable overall for comfort. rockiness etc.
My personal opinion - I would go for the bigger cabins because Voyager cabins tend to be on the small side... yes fore and aft cabins rock a little more, but on the itinerary you will be on the seas are most likely to be very calm, you probably won't feel a thing.

We just booked a cabin on Explorer and went with a D7, any cabin mid-ship is a little better for a smoother ride, although we just cruised on Ocean and were 4 cabins from the rear and had no problems what so ever with movement or noise, so basically see what over you and under you. On the DB cabins you are very close to the Promanade and to me that looked like it could be noisy, with the parades, etc, although I'm sure they don't have those late?? Yes, and as you mentioned the cabins are just a little bigger too, I like bigger :-) Enjoy Voyager!
I'm sorry to say this but I wouldn't go on this ship. I've been on other Royal cruises that were far, far better than this one. Hold your nose if you go in the men's bathrooms or ashore in Jamaica or Cozumel.
WE took the D7 over the DB, one for being more mid-ship (less movement) and of course the cabin was a little larger. From all I hear about Voyager there is very little movement anyway, so either cabin should do fine. There didn't seem to be that much difference in price between the 2, so we went with the bigger one on Explorer. Its always great to have a balcony, can't cruise without one now, enjoy whatever cabin you choose, not a whole lot of difference. Have a great time.
