Notes: What a great room!
Our family of 5 got the connecting rooms-1066 & 1068. This was our second cruise, the first one was on the Magic. While on the magic we stayed in category #3, a 1 bedroom suite with double verandah. Needless to say we were nervous to go from the top level all the way down to the bottom, but it was a last minute, tack it onto the parks splurge.
We were so surprised! The rooms were very roomy with alot of storage. Our suitcases fit under the bed and we unloaded all the contents in the drawers and still had left over room. The rooms never seemed cluttered and were bright and cheery. The portholes were plenty big for a few little faces to look out at the same time.
The porter was so very nice! We got our luggage delivered as fast as we did up in cat. 3! When we first got there, we asked for extra towels and gave him a tip...from that point on we got first class service. We got ice every afternoon and fresh towels and nifty animals on the bed.
The halls were VERY quiet. It was like living on a court. No one ever comes down there! Easy access to elevators, never had to wait as expected...often just took the stairs.
The only drawbacks would be in comparison to the one bedroom suite with seperate dressing room and walk in closet, so not too fair, but I'll still let you know. Not having a balcony was a bummer, but really not a big deal. We went to the big departure party so we were on deck, and if we wanted to see out, we just peeked out the porthole. The other drawback was the toilet. We had a "real" toilet in the category 3 room, and in the cat. one room, it was a typical boat toilet...where the slot opens up and a huge force sucks it down. Sometimes a bit smelly, but didn't really notice.
That's it! As a matter of fact, we re-booked the Magic again for January 2007 and opted out of the cat. 3 room again and re-booked the same category!
In short, you will LOVE this spacious, quiet, private room!
