E217 is a great room. The balcony is slightly extended because you're at the end of the row, closest to midship. Storage is good. It was relatively quiet. Great location if you want to be near the dining rooms. Read entire member review.
Our balcony stateroom was simple and adequate without any frills. The bed was quite comfortable, and the room was always meticulously cleaned. The balcony was a pleasant extra; however very small, as was the "head" or bathroom. Read entire member review.
Since our first cruise with a balcony, we decided to get one whenever we can. This balcony cabin was exactly what we expected, but the king bed was extremely nice. No surprises, no disappointments. Read entire member review.
Very small cabin for a balcony cabin, mid ship and good location. With two beds barely separated, we had no other room. Very sparse with two small closets, one set of shelving and a few drawers. Small flat screen tv, and bumped our shins quite a bit on the ends of the beds, either to climb over to get to the bathroom/balcony or to stand to dry our hair. Very quiet with no above or below noise. No hairdryers or fridges, balcony itself was large enough for two chairs and a small table. Read entire member review.
