We have been looking at Eastern Caribbean cruises on both Explorer and Mariner for our honeymoon next August. We have decided we definitely want to go for a balcony, but are unsure which category we should book.

I noticed there are both "Superior" and "Deluxe" oceanview cabins, with superior being slightly more expensive. Is there really a difference between these categories, or should we just go with the best price?

Also any recommendations on cabins or decks would be greatly appreciated. We are trying to get this booked early so we won't need to worry about it later.

when i asked my cruise specialist, she said the main differences are where the cabins are located. The more expensive ones are in the middle of the ship, etc.
I am going on the mariner in Feb, didnt book and oceanview room, but the 'best' interrior room possible. its on deck 8, but in the middle of the ship.

We booked the Mariner for next October.
Our cabin is a deluxe cabin on the 7th deck. Middle of the ship. The main difference we were told is the room is a "little bit" smaller than the superior and the balcony is a few inches smaller. That was really the main difference, plus the location.

We picked the 7th deck because the 6th is right above the "street fair" and dining room.
We also asked not to have an upgrade because we want the 7th deck and the middle of the ship. We already know our room number. I can't wait.

If you go on expedia they actually will give you measurments on the cabin rooms. Kinda neat.

Hope this helps

We had a superior balcony cabin on deck 10, which I must say, was a large and nicely appointed as the Four Seasons! We had a double balcony, king sized bed, queen sleeper sofa, gorgeous bathroom and plenty of room above and beyond all that. If it is just the two of you, opt for the less expensive cabin, which will still be fine and go for location. We were just a few doors down from the forward elevator on 10, which put us just steps away from the center of everything. Made coming and going to meals, pool deck, Adventure Ocean so easy that we took the stairs most of the time. I'd think that that relative location on any deck would be terrific - even in a smaller cabin! We had one day/night of movement which might have been lessened if we were on a lower deck, but wouldn't trade that for being farther away from our chosen activities. Can't wait to go again!
