On Voyager Class ships (Mariner, Navagator, etc) can anyone explain the difference between a Class D-1 cabin, and a Class D-2 cabin?

Hi Jim, they're essentially the same cabin. Only difference is the location on the ship. Higher decks and more mid-ship usually makes the diff but if it were me I'd look for either categore on deck 7 or higher. Even some of the D1s ar on deck 6. Deck 6 is the least desirable deck for view from your cabin.

Cheers, Neil

Thanks-we've always had D-2 cabins on deck 9 in the past, and this time it's a D-1.
Couldn't see the difference

I can hardly tell the difference between an E-1 and a D-1

From what I can tell, the difference is in the decks..

I am under the impression that with three in an E1 we will have a pullman bed as opposed to a sofa bed if we had a D category. Is this true? I keep beating myself up since DD will have to sleep in the pullman rather than having privacy of the sofa bed. Am I correct about this?

Hi paigelee,

You'll have a curtain for the privacy whither or not you have a sofa pull out, or a pullman. You cabin steward will unlock and pull the pullman down every evening. It's true that a D catagory has a three cushion sofa couch if it's a triple, or a quad cabin; you'll have both if it's a quad. The D catagory cabins are about a foot wider. If there's a big difference in price, I wouldn't bother paying it. But, that's my opinion, other's may not agree.

I received a response from an e-mail that I sent to RCCL about the difference between the two classes (D-1 and D-2).
They confirmed that the ONLY difference is location on the ship, deck or placement upon the same deck-they are exactly the same size and have the same interior items.
Thanks for all the info!

We booked 2 D1 cabins on Independence of the sea for spring break 2009.I wanted to upgrade to junior suites but i checked the price for the last six months,it did not even go down at all. Maybe we are going to keep those D1 rooms. I looked at the deck plan of Independence of the Sea , we have 1604 and 1610 and it looks like these cabins lay underneath the main pool and the H2O zone. Has anyone stayed in these cabins and are they much smaller than a junior suite? Did you have any problem with the noises?

How many people do you have to fill those two D-1 cabins? I know the junior suites on Mariner (Voyager Class Ships)are considerably more money; and from what I've seen as I walk past, the room is WIDER than a D-1 or D-2 cabin, and I'm sure that there are other things-Since I know WE don't spend much time in the room other than to change and sleep, the extra cost just doesn't make sense (we are only two people tho)
Also, I would venture to guess that you will not hear any noise from the deck above your cabin.
We are going on Liberty next year, and can't wait. Hope you have a great time!!
