I was just looking at the availability on my upcoming cruise in December on the Jewel of the Seas when I noticed some availability in the category in which my room is in (previously sold out) I went to the category on the ship on deck 8 and ALL FOUR of the bump out rooms had become available. Needless to say I switched my room with one of them immediately. I have really wanted to get a balcony on the bump out, I have heard a lot of people really enjoy them. I Cannot Wait!!!! just me and DH. (His first cruise ever).
