Smallest balcony cabin we have ever been in but the room overall was comfortable. Balcony was only big enough for 2 chairs, no foot rest. Bathroom was so small that I felt as if we could have taken a shower, washed hands, and used the toilet without taking more than 1 step. The closet was good-sized with lots of hangers and plenty of shelves and drawers. The closet included bathrobes without our having to ask.The room was quiet, with no noise from the staterooms above or below or from either side. I was concerned that the cabin external door from the interior room across the hall would be bothersome but we never heard it close.The cabin was somewhat mid-ship on the port side, which made it a good place from which to watch the port entertainment. Being mid-ship, we did not experience much rocking except for the first sea day between Yokohama and Aomori.
