Default Booked 14th Deck Oasis - What are we near?

We have a smaller interior room, 14677. On the deck plan, there is an open space near our room, and my husband is worried that we're near an engine. Would any of you know what it could be or how I can find out? It's our first cruise, and we want to make sure that it's relatively quiet.

I doubt that you will find an engine on the 14th deck . The engine room is in the bowels of the ship...

you will be near shore :::: (sorry, could not resist)..as huge as that ship is you will be far away from something

when are you going ?..if it's not within the first few weeks of launch, you should check back on these boards because several folks will be on the first few sailings and then can give you insight as to your cabin location and what it's near

5,000 folks onboard, it will be interesting, but exciting if this is your first cruise..too bad you could not do a 3 day weekend cruise first to make sure you like the whole concept of cruising before going on the "mother of all cruiseships and experiences

I have no idea you will just have to wait until the first sail date.

croozbabe is right. The engines are waaay down below...however, from what I can tell I will bet you that the "blank area" includes the engine exhaust funnels coming up from the engine room and other mechanical spaces. If you notice, this "blank area" is consistent on all decks in the area just aft of the aft elevator banks. Since there are very few photos of the ship so far, you can surmize from the deck plans and the artists' renditions that exhaust funnels have to come up from below somewhere in that area.

We have had cabins in that general area and have never had any issues with noise from engines. You may get a slight vibration or humm being at the aft end of the ship but nothing to bother you very much.

Enjoy your cruise!!! We are booked on the Oasis for April 17, 2010 - 572 days and counting!! Weeeeeeeeeee....

I always think this is a bad idea. 3 day cruises are the college kids party (drunk) cruises. A seven day is so different from that it's hard to compare the two. People who hated the 3 day cruises have enjoyed the 7 days.

Wow, the 14th deck...You should be close to all the neat stuff, pool deck, sports deck, Windjammer cafe, etc. I love being close to the top, seems we spend a lot of time in those areas and are easily accessable by stairs..

AMEN Katlady! That is exactly what we did years ago, primarily to "test the waters" with my wife. We did a 3 day Carnival cruise and I swear we had shipmates who did not sleep and stayed drunk (and sick, not seasick either) for the entire 3 days. I guess they wanted their $$ worth. I guess they got it, but it took me nearly 12 years to get DW back on a crusie ship again. There is a totally different vibe to a 3-4 day cruise as opposed to a 7+ day cruise. One can call me what they want, but I have lived that one.

In my opinion, 3 day cruises are a waste. You are just starting to have a great time and then you have to pack up and leave! So sad. Bob

then take a 4 day during the week, which would avoid the party weekend cruise seting (and you usually get a good rate off season)..point being, if you have never cruised before and your first is a 7 day, if you find out you don't like to cruise (it happens), then 7 days is a long time compounded with being on a ship with 5000..the countra positive to that is that a ship that large one should be able to find lots to do to enhance the cruise experience....the other option, is go with another couple who have cruised before to show you the ropes (or if you have the opportunity do a cruisemate group cruise)


funny, i've been on several 3 day cruises on Royal Caribbean in the fall and have never experience the "24 hour party" young people crowd
so I have been very lucky in that respect

We are going with another couple, our best friends, who cruised on Freedom of the Seas. I can't wait and am not worried about liking it.
