My husband and I booked a Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with a balcony (7296) and the kids stayed in a Promenade Stateroom right across the hall (7297). I found the location of the rooms (middle, right hand side of the ship) perfect; we were always facing the ports of call. The kid's room was handy as we had the option of watching the festivities (parades and such) from the comfort of their couch. The stage was just to the left of their window so we had a wonderful view of the entertainers. The room layouts were very similar and there was ample space to store all clothing etc. The suitcases fit nicely under the bed(s).
