We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 19 and 15 year olds) Is anyone familiar with the Junior Suites with balcony and if this stateroom type would be adequate for our family? What about one of these suites located on the stern of the ship on the 7th deck? Our oldest can sometimes get motion sickness, would this be a good area for our cabin? Any information you have, we would love to hear from you. Thanks.

I have stayed in a junior suite on the Enchantment and although it is a nice size cabin that has adequate space to accomodate all of you my question would be, can the 19 and 15 yr. old share a convertible sofa bed? There are no pullman beds in the junior suites. If you need to add a rollaway -it will obviously take up additional space. I did it with 2 teen age girls and since they kept to an entirely different schedule than me, it worked out fine!

Hi NancyN, thank you for your reply.I should have mentioned that we have 2 daughters travelling with us and they will be sharring the sofa bed.Good to hear this type of room will accommodate us from another traveller.Royal Caribbean informed me that it would be adequate unless we wanted to get 2 smaller staterooms, but the cost was too much for 2 rooms with balconys and I really wanted a balcony to enjoy so they suggested a junior suite.

You're welcome. I forgot to mention in my first post that you will feel the least amount of ship movement midship (in the middle).
Nancy

We just got off the Legend of the Seas in a junior suite, You can see pictures of it on my review at

http://www.cruisereviews.com/RoyalCa...ftheSeas28.htm

The Legend is a sister ship to the Enchantment. Have a great cruise!

We just booked our cruise this week and there were no junior suites available in the centre of the ship, only towards the back or on the stern.We opted for the stern area thinking it would be a nice view on the balcony when leaving the ports or when watching the water.If anyone has any comments or suggestions on these staterooms, would like to hear any feedback on our decision.Thanks, we are not leaving until February, but are all soooo excited.

You are in a good location on the ship. It is rare that the ship will have enough movement to count for anything, and when it does happen, the bow is the place NOT to be. While the center of the ship is the best location, the stern is just as good. You will have a great cruise.

Thank you Tom, good to hear once again that we made a good choice and hope to have a smooth sailing in February.Checked out your pictures, they're great. I find it hard to imagine that all this is floating on water.I'm sure we will all be amazed when we get to see and experience all this for ourselves.Can you or anyone recommend a nice beach at the port of Cozumel for us to spend the day.Soft sand and good swimming is our priority.

Check out the special reportsd on Cozumel's east coast, west coast and Chananaab National Park on the Cozumel port review pages. This will give you an excellent idea of what is available.

Have a great day in Cozumel!
