Can we call and switch rooms? Should we do it now?
Is this for a cruise in December? There should be two cabins closer together for you, at least in the same hallway.
Did you book these rooms on a guarantee basis? I was not clear about why you said you just got your cabin numbers, and "they" put you somewhere.
Connecting cabins are limited on any ship, and sell out quickly during vacation times and other family cruise times. But getting two closer together is something you should ask your travel agent to try and do.
