We were suppose to only have an inside room no windows and were upgraded to 5A with 2 portholes. Is this room ok being on Rivera? I have only stayed on the Embassy Deck before so I am a little worried being on the bottom. Any thoughts?

Any room on a cruiseship is better than a htoel room on land in my opinion.

You went from an inside to an outside, its better than what you had...

I agree with Jim C. This is better than inside. The portholes on Rivera will be a nice cabin.
I found the Riveria Deck on the Triumph to somehow be not so nice, we had an inside cabin. And wished we had done better, we stretch now for a balcony. What ship are you sailing on?

My Theory is go Cheap and go twice. Or on our next trip its go cheap and bring the kids. We have two outside cabins booked on Riviera deck.

Have a great cruise!!

That's funny; my theory is just the opposite--go once and do it up first class; Oh well, different strokes, and all that.

We used to always get an outside cabin, but went with a balcony when we went to Alaska. Now we're spoiled, moving up to Junior Suite next week (9 more wake ups and we be wheeling). Balcony or better from now on; an outside cabin would seem like slumming to us now!

Oh oh; just noticed we have a new guru amongst us. But then, we've always known that f-mattox was a cruise guru in an experienced cruiser's suit; right?!

Thank you for the kind sentiment;
and you are right--once you've had a balcony, there's no going back. For years I was content with obstructed ocean view; but now it's mini-suite or bust.
