Default Atrium cabins deck 8

I just booked an atrium cabin on the Voyager of the Seas on deck 8, but I was wondering, since this is the last deck with atrium cabins, if I will be able to have a good view of the parades and the action that goes on at the Royal Promenade. Room booked is 8275. Has anyone stayed in this cabin or at least at an atrium room at deck 8? Any hints that I should now about with these rooms? Any help would be appreciated.

The view of the promonade doesnt count when you are in port or by the pool or dancing or dining or at the spa or meeting the captain or playing golf or whatever.

FYI

a picture of 8275 is at

http://www.royalcaribbean4me.com/rcc...ger_atrium.htm

The caption is

"Voyager of the Seas Promenade Stateroom

A view of the Royal Promenade with bowed windows, two twin beds or one queen-size bed, mini bar, private bathroom, vanity area, television, radio and phone. Comfortable and wonderfully relaxing. 167 square feet"

Since you are new I will share my taking on cruising.

One of the first things I do when I get a room is have the attendent remove the contents of the mini bar to prevent accidental charges. Unless you dont mind paying the mini-bar rates.

Bring a power strip so you have more then one or two plugs.
Bungeecord helps tie down luggage.
The hairdryers are wimpy - you can get a fold-up 1600 watt at a pharmacy.
Bring yellow-stickys - they are useful for communicating with the staff.
Bring highlighter to mark your "Daily Planner"
I am bringing a mess of $2 for tips.
Make any reservations for alternate dining as soon as you get on board - they go fast. Order your excursion on-line 12 or more days before embarking via www.rci.com.
Dont reserve time at the spa until you see the sales after the 3rd day (2 for 1 sales).
Bring clips in case the shower has a curtain not a door to hold down the bottem.
Bring plenty of hangers and drycleaner bags.
Bring a nightlight.
I bring a cell phone to call from port from the ship. Using the ship phone costs $12/min.
Different cell phone companies have varying usefullness in port.
I always get insurance cause the ship doctor is expensive and doesnt take
bluexblueshield

Thats my story and Im sticking to it.

regards,

J

I loved my atrium room on deck 8. But to really enjoy the parades you need to be street level. there are 2 plugs right by the mirror at the desk. feel free to ask any questions

My kids were in 8275 on the AOS last week. Hubby & I were across the hall with a balcony. We did watch at least 3 parades/performances from their window seat sofa. I thought the view was fine from there. It was certainly better than a blank wall, but not quite as nice as the balcony. It was interesting to be able to see what was going on in the promenade if you like to people-watch. There was a VERY spacious closet, double hung & with shelves, but drawer space in the cabin is limited.
