I have sailed on the voyager 3 times on one cruise we had inter connecteing doors with a stranger (obviously locked and we never heard anything the whole cruise It does not really matter what position your cabin is on the ship you rarely hear outside noise. We have been above the theatre and never heard a thing - enjoy yourself it is a beautiful shi.
No you should not have to pay to do this. Just ask your TA to do it for you if you booked through one. Give them the new room available and I would advise you to change.
Been on voyager several times.(50+) cruises. Inter connecting doors are no different. and no noisier. never heard a noise from elevators before. (we are the nearest to elevator, in 2 weeks time on the Norwegian jewel).Under restaurant seating area is Fine, BUT if you are under the kitchen area, it WILL be noisy....
The theatre can be noisy with the music, and this area is always busy all night.
Usually only one area is open for open seating breakfast.
Go for connecting door, no different... Enjoy.
We have just been on Arcadia (P & O) and did not hear our neighbours at all although we had an interconnecting door.
Not sure about inter-connecting noise on this ship, but from experience of other ships I would never book an inter-connecting cabin again.Try RCI and ask for a free transfer, it's worth asking. Went on this ship last year, and cabin noise insulation from outside sources was excellent, also passengers were not noisy anyway.Main restaurant is open for all meals, not sure if all levels, but I think it was just lowest deck apart from dinner.
Hi, We have cruised on Naviagater of the seas and Explorer of the seas, both part of the voyager family. On Explorer we had 2 interconnecting cabins and when the door was closed could still hear our children talking or the tv noise. On navigater we were on deck 3 right next to the theatre. I was a bit concerned about noise before we sailed but did not ever hear anything. I would recommend the cabin near the theatre. No one is ever around in the mornings or during daytime and we found it very quiet. I am not sure if you will have to pay to change cabins. I have swopped cruises with royal caribbean before and had to pay £25 admin fee per person, but only because we were choosing a cheaper cruise than what we had previously booked. Good luck and enjoy your cruise. We are booked to go on Voyager next April.
I don't think you have anything to worry about. We have been on a number of cruises in inside cabins, outside cabins, staterooms and cabins with balcony's. We have had cabins near lifts, under theatre, under sundeck etc. The only time we ever experienced noise was when we were on A deck immediately under the jogging track and woke every morning to people dragging sun loungers around the deck at 06.30 onwards. I think your adjoining room will be perfect.
I a sure u wont have to pay to move cabins as long as u stay in the same grade.. I dont remember any cabins near the theatre doors.. but the theatre closes around midnight and is vacated really quickly.
The main restaurant is on decks 3 4 and 5... I wasnt aware of decks below this, but the ship is huge, well built and I am sure that even there, there would not be a noise issue.
I wouldnt suggest a promenade cabin near the cafe as we did encounter some noisy nights there as it is pen 24hrs a day..
It is a fantastic ship with a happy crew,, even better than its youner sister ship the Navigator.. food is excellent and the service as good as any normal person could expect.. a good mix of people and loads of entertainment whatever you are into...
I have been on it twice and Navigator once.. Loved it and would definitely go again.
Hi, we are also cruising on the Voyager in October, the 18th. We too have two rooms with an interconnecting door, as we too have 2 children.
All I can say is that we cruised on the Voyager last May and had no problem with noise at all. In fact, I can't remember ever hearing anything from outside our cabin. So don't be worried, you'll have a fantastic time, it's a great ship and you and your children will love it, I'm sure. Den.
