We're going on our first cruise in Nov. with another couple...on the Mariner. We got balcony rooms (E1) on deck 8. They're not adjoining but they're next door to eachother. It looked in some of the pics we've seen that you could open a door or something between the balconies....do you kow if that's possible? It'd be nice to have that option. We asked the TA (walmart.com) and he said no but it looked and sounded like we might be able to- thought you guys would know.

THANKS!

Someone else might know otherwise, but I have been on 8 RCI ships and they have never agreed to remove or open the divider between balconies, even though we have asked several times.

hhmm...even when both you and the other people asked? Maybe they just didn't want to be bothered with it. Oh well- it was a nice thought.

Thanks for letting me know.

I always had a cabin with a balcony and never checked on opening the partitions between balconies. I'll be on the Freedom in Oct. with friends, and we have ajointing rooms. The Freedom has a keyed partition, which makes it easy to open. I've been told we can have the partition opened upon request. Ajointing cabins may be a must if you want to open the partition.

I've seen the same question asked in other forums, and people have said that RCCI is pretty adamant about not opening the balconies between cabins. Once you get on the ship, you'll see that it wouldn't be as easy as unlocking a door.

You can certainly have a conversation over the railing, and you will absolutely be able to hear every word that they are saying when they are on the balcony. But if you don't have adjoining rooms, you won't hear conversations (or other noises) when you're in the rooms. That's probably a good thing!

If you're like most people, you'll spend virtually no time in your cabins. You'll be out on an excursion, on the pool deck, in a restaurant, or at a bar.

Have a great time!

HI. We had adjoining balconies on the Mariner last Christmas and we had the door between the balconies unlocked and open the whole trip. It was very nice to be able to go from room to room without going into the hall. I had asked RCCI if we could do that and they said yes. But when we got on board, the customer service desk said they didn't think it was allowed. They found out it was allowed because I told them to call someone and ask. You must be able to "prove" that both cabins are linked. (Ours were booked together so that wasn't a problem). However, I did have to call the customer service desk 3 times before someone actually appeared at my door with a key. If you want it open, you can get it opened.
