This was a balcony that had an adjacent room which had an angled balcony next to it. I knew this but there was a mix up due to Vacations to Go screwing me out of the room I originally chose (R739) so we occasionally met a nice elderly gentleman at the bar and chatted. It wasn't too bad, but hearing his wife nagging him all week was kind of sad. But the cool thing about this location is we could walk a few steps down the hall and be out at the terrace pool and walk up a few flights to get to everything at the stern, without using the elevators. Loved the location! Not noisy at all... quiet location. We did get a $200 credit from VTG for the screw up, and I say, it was worth it!
