Default what type of rooms to get?

We are cruising on the Royal Caribbean Navigator on July 5th. We were advised away from a quad room, even though we are traveling with a 6 & 8 year old. We do have 2 rooms next to each other. We have an opportunity to upgrade to outside cabins on the 2nd level, but which are connecting.

Any suggestions the best route to go...stay as is, pay the extra cost & get connecting, or try to find out if they still have a quad room left?

Hi Carol. I would suggest a connecting room if you can afford it, plus an outside room
is much nicer. Inside rooms get very dark and your kids may get scared not having you
in there with them. If at all possible I would try to get a quad, but I know the cruiselines only alot so many triples and quads due to ship capacity. We have an 8year old, and
have traveled with one of her friends before and had plenty of room for all 4 of us.
However we have never sailed RCCL before unsure how there quads are sized.
We are sailing on the Mariner this Nov. and it will be our first RCCL cruise.

To have more room I would suggest the connecting rooms, outside.

Good luck, and happy sailing.

Hi Carol,
I too would suggest the outside/connecting room, hopefully the cost is not too much. Just think it would be easier with kids that age. Bet you all have a great time!

Carol i agree with the others - the outside connecting staterooms would be my choice.

I will also agree, if the budget allows, 2 outside connecting cabins would be best. That way you will have 2 bathrooms and 2 TV's and especially, more room to move around. 2 inside connecting rooms would be OK, but be sure to bring 2 nightlights. As was mentioned above, the inside cabins get dark, completely dark, when the lights are turned off. A little night light in the bathroom would made a big difference.

I just found a website (through another poster on a different message board) that will give you 360 degree view if every category of cabins and every venue and public area of the ships of most major cruise lines. I do not see your particular ship on there bu the Adventurer, & Brilliance of the Seas are both on there. This is a must see website. It is
