Default cabin question on mariner



Sorry, I posted this earlier on the wrong board.

Anyway, I am booked on the mariner of the sea. At first I had ask my TA to give us an
aft balcony cabin. She told me that the aft cabins on the voyage ships are not that great. That there is alot of steel beams and wires which block the view. In stead we are booked in a balcony cabin on the "Bump" cabin 7316. Has anyone been in these "bump" cabins? If so, are they anygood? Was my TA handing me some B.S.?

Actually it sounds like you're fortunate and found a TA who has some knowlege of the ship.
On many ships aft cabins are certainly the "bonus" cabins, but on Voyager, many of the aft cabins are "wrapped in steel" and not that desireable. The hump cabins do offer nice balconies.

Yes,
I agree with Kuki, you T/A was not giving you any BS, there are support beams in the back on the Voyager class ships, not the case on Radiance class however... I think you made the right choice, enjoy!

Thanks for the reply. I feel better now about the cabin we took.

Thanks again for your input.

If Im right, the hump or bump cabins are the middle of the ship and stick out a bit. You are able to look out from you balcony and see forward and backwards.

My sister and her husband had cabin 7318 last May. I thought it seemed bigger than our cabin just a few rooms down at 7298. I don't think you will have any problem. The difference, if any, over other cabins would be minimal. The Mariner is a wonderful ship. Enjoy!!

It sounds like your TA was giving you positive advise and your cabin should be great. We just had cabin #1690, Deck 10 aft category D1 and it was great. The cabin is wider, longer than other D1's and the balcony is also much bigger holding 2 lounge chairs, 2 straight chairs and a small table with plenty of room to spare. The grill work mentioned and the wrap around steel hull does affect the side view on 1688 and 1388 and on lower comparible cabins but the cabins are bigger. So I guess you have to decide what is the better of your options. I know all of us cruisecritics, in similar cabins were very pleased.

The Mariner is very easy to navigate and we had a wonderful cruise.
Bon Voyage
