My wife said our R749 aft balcony was the best cabin we ever had and it was our 3rd or 4th aft. It was just past the doorway that leads up to the Terrace pool. We found no noise from the exit door nor no traffic in our end of the hall as there was only one cabin on the outside beside us. The convenience to the CC and the HC made this a great location. There were no leaners on the aft terrace pool rail so we had a great deal of privacy. All you saw were the feet of the corner chaise lounge on the pool deck. There was little early traffic at the pool nor at night so we felt totally at ease on the balcony with near total quiet even during the day. I had read on this blog that there was a security camera a deck above looking down but it was directed behind the rail not appearing to invade our space.
