I did tell my TA to put me on wait list for a Jr. Suite if someone cancels to let me know and I want the room imediately no questions asked. I hope she is checking I guess you are right I should call her on a daily basis to see. But we are getting close to sail date less then 11 days away.....I hardly think somone will be cancelling. Don't you?
I really am gonna be dissappointed going from Jr. Suite to a D1......I already know that....and to also not be aft. So what is your opionion on forward the cabin I am in now?
OH Wow Desta4........I didnt realize you were so close to your cruise date (I still have a YEAR to wait!!
Well, even though it is not a Jr. Suite, you still have a balcony (which is awesome!) and you still have the peace and quiet of being far forward!! You will have a wonderful cruise!
We were used to midship balconies and I was very worried about having that cabin far forward on our last cruise. It was fine though.......even though we didnt get to enjoy our balcony at all because of the wind. I don't think that will be the case with you, but I don't know enough about the Voyager class. It was very quiet for us being forward. We had a VERY long walk to get to any food (it was AFT on the ship), but we were always the first to get to the huge theater for the shows because it was right below us! So, there are advantages and disadvantages I guess.
We also had been told that there was a lot of motion being far forward on the ship.....but, we didnt notice anything unusual at all.
I do remember the wak to go to aft....it was a walk believe me but it was well worth it.....didn't hear anything once we were in our cabin. I just hope the forward cabin is not to windy......would love to sit out and not be wind blown...lol.
Enjoy your cruise.......I will get back to you and let you know how it went with me...thank you for all your help.
I have one more question, how soon should I board, it leaves at 5:00.
7360 looks like a good spot to me. Deck 7 is a nice stable choice as far as motion goes. You are somewhat close to AFT so you can just go straight up from there to the Windjammer to eat. Hopefully you have checked to make sure that your balcony doesnt have an obstructed view??
On my first cruise I had your same location but on Deck 8 instead of 7. We loved it. Hopefully, you will love your location too!
Go to Cruiseclues.com or RCCL and check out the Mariners deck plans. You can switch from deck to deck and see what is above and below your cabin and get a feel for what is around you.
i just booked a hump cabin on the navigator of the seas for oct 1. it is room 6614 which is right in the middle of the hump. had a junior balcony suite on my last cruise in feb aboard the serenade of the seas. the room was unbelievable! has anyone had this hump cabin or one nearby on the navigator? bob
I just booked on the Voyager cabin 9322 cat. D1 close to mid -hump....I am a newbie to cruising....does this mean I am going to have a larger balcony? Or an odd shaped balcony that will be cramped??? I am so green to all!!!!!! :o)
Did you look at the deck plan before you booked? If not, just go to the RCI website, hold your mouse over "find a cruise" click on ships and pick the Voyager, click deck plans, chose deck 9 and you can see your cabin for yourself. It looks to me like a nice cabin and balcony. Enjoy.

We have cabins 1392/1690/1692.
Does anyone have any info or photos, we are told the balconys are large ? Are the cabins themselves any bigger?
We are on the Jewel in cabin 7596. Does anyone know if we will have a larger balcony or if it has an obstructed view?
BTW a great cabin was on the VOS 7388 it was a corner aft and the balcony was huge. It had 2 lounge chairs plus a table and chairs so we ate breakfast out there every morning. That was our first balcony and now I think we are forever spoiled, I tried to get an aft for a Nov trip on the JOS but they werent available, hope Im not too dissappointed.
Chrissy- How was your cabin on the Jewel? We will be sailing in Oct. on the same deck. Please let me know how you liked it. Thanks
Has anyone stayed in this aft cabin??? According to the layout map the balcony looks huge and comes around the side but is this true??? We've stayed on the Legend in a balcony aft cabin and loved it but like the looks of this balcony. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION ON THE PINCHED BALCONY, SO WHEN YOU SAY PINCHED DOES THIS MEAN YOU DON'T GET THE LOUNGERS AND CAN'T STAND UP OFF TO THE SIDE? WE TOOK OUR HONEYMOON CRUISE IN JANUARY ON THE LEGEND AND STAYED IN 7126. I SAW SOMEWHERE ELSE ON THIS SITE THAT 9256 HAS A ACCESS DOOR FOR CREW THAT SLAMS SHUT???? NOW I'M WORRIED THAT WE PICKED THE WRONG CABIN, WOULD WE BE BETTER OFF PICKING 9258 OR ONE LIKE THAT?
There is still plenty of room on that balcony, just not as much useable space as the deck plans depict. But my wife was the one that "crew only" door bothered since she is in the cabin more than I am during the day. She says she wouldn't want that cabin again, but it is a nice oversized balcony with an aft view (you won't be able to see the port side without a periscope). I would take it again and we never complained about the crew slamming that door so that is an option too. Feel free to e-mail if you want any other clarification, Robbie
Waiting until the end to book has some advantages but when you want a specific cabin you need to book early. As a TA I watch my prices constantly and monitor for drops and also check the categories above them to see how much they might drop. I am booked in 9256 aft on the Jewel for 1/14/2011. Yes it's far away but I have the only D2 with an extended balcony. Now if the price would just drop.
