The balconies on this deck are very small, but since this was an upgrade from a partially obstructed oceanview on deck 8, we have no complaints. The location was great since we prefer aft, close to Horizon Court, the International dining room, Club Fusion, the laundromat, etc.
The cabin size is fine, adequate considering that about all one does in it is sleep, shower and change clothes. We did not use the balcony very much because of the relatively cool temperatures, particularly the transits to and from Hawaii. Read entire member review.
Caribe 259 - An excellent cabin forward of center. Adequate storage. Small shower. Convenient to elevators. Have to walk across decks to get to Horizon Court. Straight down to deck 7 for Princess Theater. Read entire member review.
