We upgraded to a Grand Suite, Cabin U84, on the ship's port side. At first we were taken aback by the pole right next to the bed. We worried that it would be in the way when getting up at night. But we got used to it in a couple of minutes and it was no problem.
The cabin was wonderful. The large balcony had a totally unobstructed 180-degree view when standing. However, we cannot stand longer than a few minutes.
The balcony chairs were very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony even though that view was blocked by the 3' high solid metal railing.
Transparent fiberglass below the rail would have been nicer, but the solid railing certainly didn't spoil a moment of our enjoyment.
