Have a question about cabin layout for anyone might know, the Vista Deck forward cabins. I would like to to know what the bed locations in the area of cabins 8117 to 8139, which cabins have the beds closets to the balconey, additionally the bed locations for cabins 8179 to 8196 would be helpful. Any unforseen disadvantages to these cabin locations someone might know of ?


Thanks

WereCrusin09


Now Looking forward to the Mediterranean sunrises this October

Hey BlueMoose!

Default Solstice

Ship - Solstice
Deck - 12
Cabin # - 2130
Class – Sky Suite (Handicap Accessible)
Starboard or Port Side – Starboard Aft (not stern)
Bed near?(balcony or bath) – Centered

Quiet Cabin –This cabin and others along both the starboard and port aft sides (not stern cabins) are directly under the Ocean View Café and are subject to beaucoup noise all hours of the day and night.

Balcony View – Unobstructed

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? – Oversized

Was wind a problem? -- No…. Regardless of class of cabin and location, you will experience wind tunnel effect if you have both your balcony and cabin doors open.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -- No

Any specific problems with this cabin? – None

Any other comments? – Because this is a handicap accessible cabin, it has several unique features. 1) This cabin is larger than the standard Sky Suite. 2) Your key card, handicap button inside the cabin, or manual operation of the door handle results in the cabin door opening automatically. It is impossible to manually close it; you have to wait until it closes itself. This feature allows ample time for wheel-chaired passengers to enter and exit the cabin. 3) The primary closet’s clothes rod has a lever a wheel-chaired passenger can pull lowering the rod and providing easy access to hanging clothes. The hanging rod in the secondary closest is half-length and at wheel-chair level. While this provides easy access to a wheel-chaired guest, it is so low you cannot hang trousers on it and reduces the amount of available hanging space. 4) The shower is designed to accommodate wheel chairs. There is a tiled ridge that runs the length of the shower designed and intended to keep the shower water inside the shower. It is not very effective and water will flow onto the bathroom floor. Stateroom attendants will lay two bath towels lengthwise to absorb the water. The controls and hand wand are easily accessible.

Your welcome!! Hopefully we can continue to collect information as others return and I can add cabins each week. I noticed that even with the few that we have I already have two on the list that state a problem with noise and two afts with the soot problem. Maybe this will help some in the future to avoid those cabins. I am not able to include all info in the table because it would be too large but when you see the info in the table on a specific cabin you can look up the post that the information came from. There is a great post with information on one of the handicapped cabins. I hope to be able to update this at least weekly on the chart and will continue to sort it by cabin number to make it easier to find specific cabin numbers.

AWESOME CHART Donna...thanks for all the work you've put into this project. We'll know more about the cabins than the X representatives!

Have a great day.

Quiet Cabin (With comments on problems. Note if connecting. ) – Connecting but quiet. On other side there is a utility room which accounts for the larger balcony but some noise but not enough to bother us.

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Great view of the wake

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - A bit larger due to the utility room next door.

Was wind a problem? No

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? No

Any specific problems with this cabin? No

Any other comments?
Great cabin for those who enjoy the wake plus the larger verandah.

Donna,

Great chart! I do have to give you a couple of corrections on 1059, though. It is not a connecting cabin and I would have to say that wind was not a problem (they all have the wind tunnel effect if you have both doors open).

Keep up the great work!!!

Tiffany

Now Looking forward to the Mediterranean sunrises this October

Hey BlueMoose!
We are in 8129, wondering about anything on that side of the boat (as you are wondering). Someone out there has got to have been in that area..
