The cruise was relaxing. We went to Princess Cays, where we got a Sanctuary Bungalow that we enjoyed very much. We weren't fans of the Nassau market off the port since we don't like having all the vendors constantly trying to convince you to go into their shop (or get your hair braided). The food in the MDR was great. We had your-time-dining and only had to wait once. We enjoyed the music shows and went to both showings both times. I wish there had been more of them instead of only two nights. The main reason for my review is to share a warning about room E82, and really all the rooms around there. I had no idea how loud it would be in that room due to the music in the Atrium. I had researched the room beforehand and hadn't seen any warning, so I decided to add my own review afterward so that others would know better. This isn't something that would be better one or two rooms further away. The noise was loud enough that I wouldn't recommend any rooms in the midsection of the Emerald deck at all. I would recommend going with a different deck, or perhaps all the way in the Aft section.

Too close to Atrium

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8D E82
The room itself was fine. The problem was the noise from the Atrium. I wish we had been warned that, even though we were a number of rooms away from the Atrium, the nightly music and crowd noise would be very loud within our room. Unless you don't mind hearing the noise, I would recommend you either choose a room much further away from the Atrium (as in the Aft part of the ship) or else on a different floor.
