Hello Everyone,

I have been in an Inside Cabin, and a Balcony, and this time me and my sister are getting a promenade inside cabin. I was wondering if anyone has been on one and what is it like?

We are both teenagers, i'm 16 (17 at time of next cruise)
and my sister is going to be 15.

My parents are in the room accross the hall so it was okay to book that way

but I was wondering what the Promenade Room was like ?

From what I've read, they are very nice, you don't hear a lot of noise, unless the parade is going on. Just be sure to draw the drapes when dressing, the cabins straight across can see in as easily as you can see in theirs.

I know most here recommend the Promenade cabins. We however found them a little disappointing. My wife & I had one, our grown kids were in the two adjoining. All of us found that most of the time we simply left the drapes closed for privacy. As such, we should have just booked an interior & saved a few dollars.

We did little people watching from the room, and we went to the parades rather then watch from the window. The rest of the time we kept them closed in order change our clothes, etc.

In the future we'll either book an interior or go w/ an exterior, but skip the Promenade. We don't regret trying it, but just wouldn't do it again. It certainly did not ruin our week

Bob, I have always thought the same....If I were going to pay for an atrium cabin, which to my mind is an inside, with a different name and price, I would say book an inside, and benefit from the lower price..more to spend in port that way!

Just to confuse the girls more I have stayed in promenade cabins three times on Freedom class ships and twice on Voyager class and will be in a promenade cabin on the Oasis. It is all I book anymore. You girls will love it.

Thank you guys for all of your replies!!

It did help me out.

I am excited about my Promenade room, Me and my sister will proabbly be looking for our parents and things, i think it will be fun!
Plus, to me, I think an inside would feel more closed in, I have sailed with a Balcony room in 2007 and in an inside room in 2004, And i definately liked the balcony a lot better, but I think the window will make it feel bigger.

the experiance would be good.

Thank you guys for your input!
