Our TA selected 8209 for us & we really thank her for that. The view was great, nothing blocked our view. The lifeboats were to the left and right of us. Closet room was spacious for the two of us. Of course the bathroom was tiny, but efficient. I was a little curious of the amenities left for us. Mostly ice tea packets! Sample tubes of toothpaste or lotion would be more appropriate. The breathe rite and motion sickness samples might have been appropriate, but we didn't need them.
