Hi--we're getting ready to book our first cruise on the Navigator or the Mariner. We would greatly appreciate any help deciphering the cabin "ratings"--we know we want a balcony--but are unsure of the position on the ship and what would be the best. i.e. starboard, front, back, etc. I have read reviews where people had lots of noise from the kitchen below, etc, and would really love to avoid problems like that. Any help appreciated--i.e.specific cabin #s! Thanks!!! Sue and Ryan

My two favorite locations are center and aft. I like the aft most because of the large balcony. I also like the bump out in the center. I never had a noise problem. Here is a picture from a bump out balcony >

You will be able to navigate around to see other pictures. Hope this helps.

Thanks--can you fill me in on the lingo please? I don't know what aft means, and where is the bump? Also, what about wind issues for a balcony? Is there a better side than another? Thanks!

SonnyV Thanks so much for sharing those pictures. I will be going on my first cruise and am trying to learn as much as possible. I am dumbfounded by the beauty and size of the ships!

The aft in the very back of the ship. The "bump-out" where the sides of the ship extend out. This is by the elevators. It doesn't matter which side you're on as far as any wind issues.
I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Next weekend I'll be on the Freedom of the Seas so I'll be posting a lot of pictures. They are only going to be 120 passengers so pictures taking should be a snap
