Default Cabin, good or bad?

I just booked our FREE cruise for the first week in Dec aboard the Explorer RCI. I had no say as to a cabin location. They gave me Cat "Q" # 6687 in the stern of the ship. Any comments from all of you good or bad would be appreciated. This is our first time on a cruise. The company handling the free cruise arrangements told me I couldn't upgrade. Any chance I could do something when checking in at the dock?

I would check back periodically w/ the co. that booked your cruise. Many times, if the ship isn't filling up, they will go to what's called a "Guaranty" which means you're not assigned a specific cabin. You are placed in the Q catagory but could be upgraded upon arrival. The upgrade for a Q would be to a like cabin but on a higher deck.

If this doesn't happen, the inside cabins aboard the Voyager class ships are very nice, so not to worry. There is plenty of storage and room to move, while also being pleasing to the eye.

As to being at the stern of the ship, we've sailed 3 times back there, however, on a higher deck. We've had no problem what-so-ever. The ship is so large, I can't imagine it being a problem. From what I understand, the lower deck you're on, the smoother the ride.

An inside cabin is nothing to worry about. You don't spend much time there anyway! There is lots of room. Have a great trip!
