Our cabin was a starboard aft balcony and was tended to well by our steward, named Mr. Suata. We had 2 adults and 2 school aged children so we used the bed and 2 pullman's with space. I did hit myself twice on the pullman's corners and, on a future cruise, I would bring a corner stopper for these edges. The balcony was comfortable and well worth it for morning sunbathing when heading south or afternoon sunbathing when heading back north. It was also a wonderful location from which to look at the flying fish during daytime and the planets, stars and moon at night. Also, the balcony was a nice respite during midday when the decks were packed with people. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a bit dingy and worn, there really was nowhere to sit other than one tiny chair and an ottoman type seat. The closet space was wonderful! There is only 1 plug in the room so bring a powerstrip! Read entire member review >>
We had booked a cabin with a window, however two weeks before our cruise they called us and offered us an upgrade and we took it. Brest decision ever ! We loved sitting on the balcony with a drink in hand. So relaxing. Read entire member review >>
Our room was located in great location we had an unobstructed view with a balcony with 2 chairs and a table. There is an open deck below that people use and may interrupt your privacy. The room was large enough and everything worked perfectly. The bed could use a new mattress but it wasn't completely uncomfortable. 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 >>
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 >>
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 >>
