We were on Deck 14, front of the ship on the right hand side (looking forward) and had a nice Balcony room (R259). We were just off of the elevators which was a great location, and had a completely unobstructed view. We were high enough up that we could look out over other balconies but no one could look onto ours. Plenty of closet space, but not a lot of drawer space. Bathroom/shower a bit cramped, but overall it was a great room and we were very happy with it and its location! For the ports that we went to, this was the water side of the ship, not the port side of the ship which didn't allow us the opportunity to see the ports as we came into them .... but we loved just looking at and watching the water so, we really didn't care either way.
