Our room had a great balcony. It was covered so we were able to sit and read without the sun glaring off the white pages and blinding us. Our room was very comfortable, however it could have been a little larger and have two decent chairs for two adults to sit and chat. I was surprised how quiet our room was. It could be that the passengers on our deck were quiet and realized people may be relaxing in their room. There was no noise from any of the bars, and entertainment areas of the dhip.
