RCI's balconies are like boxes with a hole cut out. I prefer something more open, with more glass and less metal. We had a full-size couch, whcih was nice. Twice we had impromptu parties with 8-10 people and the room didn't feels crowded. RCI's curved shower doors are so-o-o much better than shower curtains. Even though we had clothes for two weeks, there was plenty of room for them.
