Default 1A porthole cabin

Anyone have one of these? Can you see much out of the portholes?

We are in one in April. If you put in port holes on this site, a ton of stuff comes up. Pics and such. From my understanding, you can see straight out, but thats all, more of lights probably than anything. The pictures I saw had people sitting up in ledge.

If there is something to see, you can see it.

This one is 2216 on Splendor. One thing about the forward cabins on lower decks is that you will know when the forward thrusters are in use - but that is generally just entering and exiting ports. Often people are on deck when that happens, anyway.

When the anchor gets dropped you will know it too! Loud clanging as the chain is played out. We had one of these cabins on the Elation. It was fine - who can complain when you win a free cruise?

Midship low deck cabins are best for least noise and motion I've had forward cabins and aft cabins before both had noise aft had vibrations also.

For the money, I think these cabins are really a winner! We've sailed in those cabins a couple of times, and the only negative thing I can think of other than the noise from the thrusters, and anchor, is that during really HIGH seas, and when underway, you can hear the waves smack the hull of the ship. I kind of liked it, but the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) said it kept her awake at times. I'd book these cabins again in a heartbeat!

Default Portholes

I would check to make sure what type of porthole is in the cabin you're getting. We had to move out of our assigned cabin on the Holiday on one cruise, due to a water leak, for a twelve hour period. It was the most forward cabin on the lowest passenger deck. The porthole was for a little light only. The hull is deep here and the porthole is in the outer skin. I have no idea how many cabins have that type of porthole. We could see waves splashing by at times but it was high and deep enough that you could not see out. A friend who cruises several times a year economically also had a cabin with this type of porthole one time. She checks now.
I don't think she would have minded the ledge but deep is another thing.
The cabin was fine though.
