Default Radiance 8/11/2001& Cabin 9586

My wife and I are sailing the Radiance of the Seas on 8/11/2001. Are any readers on this trip? Also has anyone had cabin 9586. I am interested in the layout and the balcony on the bowed portion of the ship.

I have seen the cabin in that section on deck 7. You have a better view because you can look down and see the water rather than see the covers over the lifeboats. The layout of the cabin is otherwise typical.

There is a woman named Pam who is a moderator over on CruiseCritic and posts on the RTC newsgroup. She just stayed in 9586 and said it's a GREAT location! I almost booked that one myself but opted for 9590 a couple doors down because the balcony looked like it MIGHT be a WEE bit larger due to its irregular shape. Of course, I'm sure they're the same. Anyway, I liked the where these cabins are located close to the atrium so you can look over and waaaaayyy down. Also, closer to the elevators and stairways than some cabins.

By the way, we'll be sailing exactly a year AFTER you--actually it will be August 10, 2002. Have a great cruise!

Mark,
You folks are lucky puppies. I can say that because we recently spent 7 nights in 9586, and 4 more in 9588, and IMO they are in the best location on the ship!!! And, 9586 was the best of the two. The Royal Suite is directly overhead, so if they selected that ship location for that cabin, you know it's got to be the best! The only downside is . . . It is SO CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING that you will be spoiled for future cruises. (I might be willing to "buy" your cruise from you just to have that cabin again . . . GRIN)

We will post after we return and let you know, but I'm sure it will be great.

I see that our cabin, 9590 is also under the Royal Suite. Since it's right next to 9588 and two doors down from 9586, is it a good one, too?? Did you happen to see this particular stateroom from the inside or outside? It sits right on the curve, so the balcony is shaped a bit differently. Thanks for the positive feedback regarding cabins in this ideal midship location. By the way, can you believe that the Royal Suite is the same size as 5 cabins??!! And, that long balcony is to die for!

Lindsay,
We didn't see the inside of 9590 but, as you know, it's a terrific location on the ship. BTW, there is extra "space" in the passageway outside your cabin door but I don't know what good that is to you. GRIN Don't need to tell you to have a wonderful cruise . . . it's a given!

Thanks, Clayton! Regarding that extra "space" outside our cabin door, maybe we'll send our daughter out there to sleep if she's not a "good kid". <g> I wonder if i can stand to wait until August of 2002!!
