Seeing a Cruise Critic editor’s “bad balcony” put reader Sandee in a sharing mood. She recently cruised in one of Celebrity Silhouette’s 130 AquaClass cabins (1549), which means she had access to the Persian Garden, a DIY spa compound featuring rooms that mimic a bug-free rainforest and sand- and camel-free dessert, and Blu, an exclusive spa dining venue. Insider her cabin were extra-fluffy bathrobes and towels, spa toiletries and a five-nozzle massaging shower head. We imagine she was feeling a bit like putty … until she saw the view from her balcony — the ship’s window washing equipment. Still, the sight of a steel basket and possibly a man in a jumpsuit spraying water from a hose didn’t entirely kill the mood. “The Obstruction you see is annoying, but never did we regret sailing on this ship,” she wrote in an e-mail.
