Default Ever been in this cabin....

Have 9218 booked on the Mariner. I imagine any voyager class ship would be the same. I usually get a cabin with 2 lowers and 2 uppers for my 2 boys and I. I like the two lowers put together for me and the kids each have their own bunk.

I am wondering about this category. It is 211 SF. It says is has a sleeper sofa instead of pullmans. Do the two single beds line up perpendicular to the window or across? It seems the balcony cabins have the beds sideways because of the sliding door but the ocean view generally go the other way. This cabin is on deck 9 all the way forward. Has anyone been in this category and have any pictures of this cabin or one like it (9218)? Is the sofa big enough for 2 people? I am thinking this would be good 'cuz the kids can go to sleep, I can pull the curtain across and have my own little section with the sofa sleeper. Any input or pictures?

I've not been on a voyager, but I'd think the beds would have their heads against the window-wall, if that makes sense.

You thinking of giving the boys the beds and sleeping on the sofa, Dave?

Yes, that helps and makes sense. From the pics, that is what it looks like except for the forward facing cabins with the sloped wall. I guess I will just have to see. yes, If they have the beds I can close the curtain and come in and out after they are asleep and entertain if necessary.

PS Tracy, there is some crazy talk going on over on the singles board...

Well I'd best go check it out, then!

As another PS....say your prayers for Princess Crown passengers. Something really bad happened at about 3:30 today. A terrible list, everything smashed and broken, and sounds like some serious injuries as a result. I'm combing the news, but they are more interested in the middle east.

The ship should be back at Port Canaveral by now.

Here is a link to the latest news story from the local tv station:

http://www.cfnews13.com/StoryHeadline.aspx?id=17293

The cruise is terminating in PC, and there will be full refunds for all passengers. Sounds like there are perhaps a hundred injured.

Thanks. I didn't think there were any ocean view on deck 10 just balconies. Deck 10 is the bridge deck and there are cpatains quarters behind the bridge and then the balconies start. Deck 9 only has 3 ocean view on either side forward. There are also forward facing ocean views on decks 6,7,8, and 9 I believe. These have a sloping forward bulkhead.

I don't know what I was thinking... It must be that I have not had a Bud Lite yet today. But now I am on a mission to go get pictures.
