Our cabin was 8011 and we found it to be very comfortable. The balcony has an unobstructed view and it was very enjoyable to sit out there, particularly when we were pulling out of port. It is located port side and pretty far forward so you do feel the motion of the ship more there than a cabin midship. It was never a problem for us. I enjoyed that it was really easy to pop up the stairs to the pool deck from there, particularly the Aqua Spa area. The beds was very comfortable and we had sufficient room to hang our clothes up or store them in the drawers. The only negative was that the hallway outside our cabin always smelled of cigarette smoke. We talked to our cabin steward and he didn't think anyone was illegally smoking in their room, but that it might be a quirk with the ventilation system as we were two decks below the smoking area. After that he made an effort to spray air freshener in our section of the hallway. We never smelled it in the cabin, just in the hall.
