Default serenade cabin

I haven't booked a balcony before, but I just booked one -8614- on the Serenade for an Alasks cruise (Vancouver-Vancouver).
Has anyone been in this cabin (or one nearby)? The hump will be on our left but I am hoping we wil be far enough away that it won't affect our view very much. Am I correct? For this cruise, does it matter if you are on the port or starboard side of the ship?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a cabin booked ( 9008). I too am very interested in reading any response to your post. I never have cruised so I am not even sure what the hump is. I wish I could give you some feedback. My cruise is on the Serenade on Oct 29.

We were on the Serenade -- 9576 cabin. Absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend it. We called the hump "the bulge". Tried to get that same cabin on the Radiance for an October Panama Canal trip, but it was already booked. You didn't have to lean over to see the front of the ship.

We are in cabin 9576 in Sept. 2006... never sailed RCI... just 2nd cruise... could you elaborate about this cabin? I expect the balcony to be larger, my sister will be next door in 9578... do the partitions open to balconies between cabins if you want? Anything you could tell us will be more than we know now.... thanx

AWP&LFP - We have 9076, same location, only port side. How much bigger is the balcony, really curious. Thanks

8614 and 9008 are quite adequate with nothing unusual about the location or the shape of the balcony . As mentioned, 9576 is a little deeper balcony just as the "hump" starts out (no access to your sister's adjoining balcony except to peek around). I favor aft balconies but love the postion of this one due to the forward view of the ship crashing through the waves. For the poster in 9076, the balcony has the same shape and great view but is located directly under the "Concierge Club." Don't know how noisy it gets when the foot traffic picks up in there (morning mini-buffet and eve cocktails for "Diamond" and suite guests). Maybe someone else can help out about this issue?

Haven't been in all the rooms (yet) but Radiance class ships have me hooked for now!
Serenade coming up in Oct '05 and Jewel again in May '06

Hey Robbie, good suggestion about possible noise in 9076. I did a "9076" search on another very large board and got quite a few results on the whole Radiance class fleet.
Almost all comments indicated minimal or no noise from above or from the hallway. Seems to be a well liked location. I'm sticking with it. Actually, could have had 9576 when I booked, but being a leftie, prefer port side.
