We are a family of five. Two boy's 14 and a girl 17. This will be our first cruise, thinking about the navigator. Kids would like the promonade rooms and then us across the hall. Does any one know if this would be the thing to do? Heard those rooms can be loud? Thanks
I stayed on an atrium cabin on the Adventure of the Seas last year. I was on deck 8. The room was great, and noise was not a problem at all. You can watch all the parades and shows from your room. The noise during the parades won't bother you at all, and even if it did bother you, the shows will last for a very short time, so it shouldn't be a problem.
Other than that, tha promenade is very quiet. The main concern with people in these rooms is the privacy, as others can look into your room as well. But as long as you're very careful and REMEMBER to close the courtains while you change your clothes, it should be fine. I loved having a window overlooking the Promenade, rather than not having any window at all. Plus the room is not as dark as a regular inside cabin.
If I would go again in a Voyager class ship, I would definitely book an atrium cabin again. You'll love it!
We are a family of 4 with a 14 yr old girl and a 16 year old boy. We have booked on the Navigator with a Promenade room for them, and a cabin directly across the hall with a balcony for us. This arrangement was highly suggested by our travel agent that we have known for years and who is aware of our preferences. The promenade room is an inside room with a window, so that makes the room a lot nicer than a regular inside room, and I believe the price is the same. Let me know which week you are going if you book.
Hi, I've also booked three promenade rooms on the Mariner. We're on Deck six and judging from the deck plans, it looks like we'll be above some shops. I've heard it can be noisy if you're near the pub. The price per person is $20.00 more than the Category M inside, but to me it's worth it to have any kind of a window. I'll let everyone know how we liked ours.
I was thinking about the noise above the shops and maybe the rooms above those would be better. I can't wait to book my trip. On other boards Iv'e read you just have to becareful of dressing with the curtains open.
You must have an adult...twenty five...in each room, unless the rooms connect. We are traveling on the Navigator in December and this is what we were told. As for the noise level, I asked a friend and she said the rooms were very quite.
I am thinkinking about next Easter march 26 or 27-05. Do you like the eastern or western. I've been to jamaica before but I've heard it's pretty scarry now and am not sure if I want to take the kids there. Never been to the eastern side before.
