Our last cruise in the Spring was Plaza 208 and this cruise was next door at Plaza 210 in the front of the ship. It is a nice ocean view cabin. YOU DO NOT NEED A BALCONY ON A TRANSATLANTIC CRUISE. Save your money. It can be stormy and windy and very cold. We have seen cabins flooded that had balconies because of large waves. We get these cabins because the laundry room is across the hall, so I could do my clothes any time I wanted without interference with other passengers.It is directly down the hall from the piazza and the international cafe and coffee bar. Very convenient. Very quiet.
