I just completed a cruise last weekend and I was on deck two-forward. Waaaay forward. There was nothing wrong with the view there, but I did feel the movement of the ship a little more then I did on any of my three previous sailings.

The water did not reach my window, but when the seas got a little choppy the ocean spray certainly did from time to time. That was kinda fun to watch!

As for the elevators, the wait for them was a long as anywhere else!

You must be a great swimmer by now! Of course wine isn't alcohol. Its "life water".

As Chef Ken stated, the gangway can change depending on the port you are in. In Miami (or when at the port of embarkation/debarkation the gangway deck is typically the same as the main lobby so that you enter the ship into the "grand lobby". But on tendering port days, you will be getting off probably one deck lower than 2 (You will get to see the crews quarters). It really depends on the ship layout. On the larger ship, deck1 will have the tender access and typically the medical facilities, then the rest is crew access only.

I wouldn't think you will feel claustraphobic on deck two. Like you said, the cruise line says you will get a big window. 'Big" means probably 3 ft by 2 ft. And you will still be at least one deck above the water.

People tend to make much more fuss about the room then warranted. Most people do not spend any more time then sleeping and changing in the cabin anyway. So for the most part, its not worth the money to go with a big cabin. Some people demand a balcony becuase they enjoy it, and that fine, but unless you are going ot spring for a big suite, there really is not huge difference in the cabins.

Deck 2 is not as low as you might think it is. Here is a photo of the Enchantment. You see that bottom row of windows? The ones that are higher than the pier? That is deck 2.

Thanks Dave! A picture is truly worth a thousand words.

Old or new, deck 2 is still deck 2. The ship was stretched not made taller.

The photo is in Ocho Rios.

I've stayed on deck 2 before, on the Monarch. I didn't think it was too low. Having dibs on the elevator, was a great plus. I have been on the Enchantment after it was stretched. She is so beautiful. Lil' Lori
