Did I pick bad rooms? If so can I change?

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to say we are quite new to travelling and this is our first ever cruise and I'm as apprehensive as can be.  I picked adjoining cabins, as my grown son is coming along and wanted his own space, but he sleeps very lightly and is very sensitive to noise.  I chose low and mid ship because I am afraid I might get sea sick.  However I realise our cabins are quite close the the elevator, (2310 and 2312 voyager of the seas), and possibly the atrium? Noise is the main thing that I am getting ulcers worrying about.  Any reassurance or advice would be appreciated. I would happily pay a bit (not a lot) more for less noise.

While I have not sailed on that ship, or room location, I have sailed in rooms near elevators before and you should be fine. While it doesnt look like it on the deck plans, the elevator banks are in their own lobby, and you actually have to go through a door, and down the hall to get to your stateroom. The noise level should be pretty low.

So I have not sailed those specific rooms I have been on deck 2 of many Voyager Class ships and these are very quiet cabins, please note that there are no interior rooms on this deck so that's 50% less traffic down your hall....You are close to the elevator but I would say you should be OK with your choice.

@jill wozhere  Hi and welcome to the RCB fourums.

I was in 2292 in 2000.  We find the rooms surprisingly quiet.  I think you will find being mid ship near an elevator is very convenient.  We booked an 8th floor room right near an elevator on Harmony for next November.  We like those rooms...

It's so funny that I just read your post, as I just called (again) to change my room number and one of my top priorities is to be CLOSE to the elevator!   I was thrilled to find a room that was both near the elevator, on the port side and on the same floor as at least part of the solarium.... I am sure that the Customer Service folks at RC are thrilled that I have found the perfect room too, and will quit calling them every night... 😁

Thanks for the welcome and replies:12_slight_smile:.  I feel less worried about my decision now:34_rolling_eyes:.  I still have a tummy full of butterflies, about venturing into the unknown, but I'm doing my best to inform myself with good advice from kind people, such as yourselves, who know the ropes. I appreciate each of you taking the time to help:91_thumbsup:.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the LACK of noise we've had on all of our cruises thus far. As someone that gets easily annoyed in hotels over incessant hallway noise, I've been very pleased with how quiet it has been. I don't recall even hearing noise from adjacent cabins.

The only time we had any noise was when we stayed in an interior cabin on Deck 3 of Rhapsody, directly under the Centrum where bands play. Oops! Live & learn.

On Grandeur --- Vision Class ..... I picked a room that, at the time, I didn't realize, was right under the Centrum and the R Bar ...... to my surprise, it was generally quiet, we could faintly hear the music from above, but that ended at 11:00, so there were no issues.  In fact, we've been in the same cabin 3 years in a row with a fourth one coming.

As I said, we are new to travelling in general, but when we went to Bali, our first overseas trip ever, a couple of years back, there were loud people and kids and running down the corridors of our hotel at all hours of the night, on most nights..  It was hard to get a good night's sleep.... Therefore I was very fearful that this all night noise, might happen on the ship also, with there being so much going on. Even though most of the hotel noise was mainly from people checking out in or out the dead of night and forgetting that not everyone is up at 3am😒!

Same with us, we were on the Harmony of the Seas and it was very quiet.  We were on Deck 10 by the elevators and did not have any issues.  We are booked on the Allure for next May and I picked rooms by the elevator again.

Royal has a curfew for the kids so they go to bed at a reasonable time.

I agree with everyone else, close to the elevator should not be an issue.

You should be fine.  I always throw in a a pair of earplugs in my travel bag. Keeps out all the possible noise.

Yep, that's a sign of aging, impatience. At least that's what my wife tells me! :3_grin:

Haha. I read your response too quickly and did a double take because I thought impatience was some thing else! 😂😂😂
