    Deck 2 ??

    by Steph » Mon Jul 18, 2016 12:40 pm

    I'm just wondering what is wrong with deck 2? Why is it considerably cheaper than even deck 3 for example? Just wondering :D

    Because you'll be housed in the brig. Its actually pretty decent. You get a window which shouldn't be underestimated. How much cheaper is it than the next floor up?

    I was in an ocean view room on deck 2 in 2015. It was fine. I don't recall any reason for it being cheaper. I may be wrong, but I thought deck 2 & 3 ocean view were the same price that year. It was also great for disembarking the boat that cruise, as we exited on deck 1 that year.

    Ocean view "I" are strictly doubles while the H are "Cabin has third and fourth Pullman beds available."It problably has to do with selling out certain cabins first so they can sell triples and quads .Not a lot of difference in the category type ,so in the balconies you pay an extra $100 foot the same room on the "bump/hump" which gives you an expanded view of water.

    I'd go with The Poseidon Adventure instead: Deck 2 would be closer to the escape-route through the bottom of the hull! :D

    All kidding aside, cruise lines always price their Deck 2 cabins lower, whether in-category or in different categories, and UMC's pricing reflects Royal's normal pricing here. This is despite the fact that, for anyone who's prone to motion sickness, the lower decks are much better since there is less motion involved if the seas get rough.
    The low pricing really works out great for some of us, since (arguably) the best stage on the boat -- the Studio B ice-rink stage -- is within an easy walk and a short stairway climb.

    I could be completely wrong as I was never in a cabin on deck 2, but I thought I recalled someone saying that later in the cruise the lower decks start to have a bit of a funky smell to them, due to being closer to the sewage?

    That could be reasoning for lower price perhaps?

    I've stayed on deck 2 a few times and that was never an issue.

    Was on deck 2 last year, you have to learn that you can't walk on the 2nd deck all the way. It's blocked in the middle because of the stages. More elevator but it's not that bad once you figure out the best route to your room. What I find more important is proximity to the elevator. Those long walk to the far side of the boat when you have to go to your room are the worst, but we are still very much spoiled when compared to other festivals. Wherever your room is... it 1st world problems.

    Actually thinking back the year I went solo I stayed with mates on deck 2 on the Majesty and it was okay.

    I was on deck 2 last cruise and requested (and was given) the same room for next year. Bad smell? Certainly not near my cabin. We were like 10 meters away from the theater stage, which was extremely convenient, and also really close to the elevator. I wouldn't change my room for another one (in a value-for-your-money reasoning).

    I was in an interior on deck 2 in 2015 and it was fine. I was actually fighting of a flu and spent a lot of time sleeping. But who cares about where it is because it is just for sleeping isn't it?

    I stayed on deck 2 this year right next to the Alhambra theatre. It was fine, close to 2 of the stages, and we only got a little of the bass from the stage in our room but it wasn't bad, especially if you watch the sets on your tv.

    When we went to Costa Maya we ran into a storm and the whole damn night, the banging was intense! The water smacking the side of the ship. Even with earplugs it was difficult to fall asleep. Hopefully we won't run into rough seas during the night this time around. :beerbang:
