Aft-Facing Balcony Cabins

22 Reviews
You'll enjoy every inch of these staterooms, with enough space to sleep up to four guests. The two lower beds can be converted into a queen-size bed and the convertible sofa pulls out to sleep two more. You'll also have a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony. Because these are aft-facing, the view from your balcony is amazing and truly unforgettable.

This room was clean and so spacious!! We loved having our own balcony!! We were able to escape to our own space to watch the scenery float by! We saw seals and mountain goats all from the privacy of our own room!! Every nite the service would leave whatever documentation we may need for the next day;our itinerary, Canadian custom forms, and all port papers and info!

Loved Alaska et101
I had to have an aft-facing balcony for Alaska and it was worth every penny although the room itself was more cramped than I expected.

Mostly Good joelkmcw

Our cabin location was Deck 11 aft-facing. Deck 12 aft is the Great Outdoors cafe and patio. Apparently, about 7 AM each day the crew cleans the Great Outdoors patio, moves the deck chairs and tables back to starting positions, etc. We could hear the thumping and scraping very well in our cabin. And, I didn't see any benefit to the aft-facing cabin versus one in midship, even though the aft-facing has a higher price.

Room was ok. Great views. If its a bit windy and cool, this is the place to be as the wind doesnt whip around the back of the ship. Cabin steward was great. Sliding door didnt lock properly; when worked on it then whistled when locked.

The room has a nice sized balcony for this level of room. It fits a lounge chair, two sitting chairs and a tiny end table. Unfortunately, the balcony is directly below the Great Outdoors restaurant. We found used cigarette boxes and bits of food nearly everyday on the balcony. The balcony rail was greasy from the incinerator located above. Little privacy during the day since someone was almost always looking over the rail onto our balcony below. I would get a room one deck level below next time. The room was very petite and efficient. The bathroom is about the size on an airplane. Lots of storage available. They had a ladder in the closet which took up a lot room and was unnecessary. They could have removed it and made it available upon request. The bed was comfy. The tv was tiny and was poor quality. It's really only big enough for two adults. We shared the room with our 7 year old daughter who slept on the sofa which pulls out to a bed, making balcony access difficult and acrobatic. It was really cramped with all 3 of us in the room.

cabin 8634 You will always know which cabin you have, its on every sign on deck 8. Ever sign. tiny bathroom, but lots of storage. huge closet small TV, but your on vacation, why watch TV? huge balcony, 3 chairs, no table, take the table from your sitting area and put it on the balcony. works like a charm. NO HALLWAY NOISE. in a great location, rooms above you and a walking track below you. BEST VIEWS! Panoramic view of the ocean, great when you leave Nassau and NYC.

8634 is at the very back of the ship. Don't remember what they call it, but we enjoyed the experience. Would we do it again...NO... too noisy. It's like being outside a giant loud waterfall all of the time. We love to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by. Too noisy here. HOWEVER... we did enjoy this balcony for the glacier viewing. It was also very nice when we left a port. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

Very quiet. Not much floor space. Adequate storage space. Bathroom is functional but small with little counter space.

Great balcony and great view. We like sleeping with the balcony door open so we can hear the waves. Very hard to hear PA announcements in this location. Otherwise, quiet location, not a lot of traffic being that you're at the end of the hallway.

Across from art gallery storage, so sometimes you find carts of artwork in front of your door. Lots of soot from the incinerator collects on the balcony railing and chairs.

balcony - 10 aft decent size room for 2 people. any more and you wouldn't be able to walk! closet space was good for storing luggage & our clothes. 3 decent size drawers & 4 good size shelves as well. Bathroom was small but comfortable. 1 bed & a small couch in the room along with a few corner tables. Balcony is wonderful! Fit a lounge chair, small table & 2 deck chairs with plenty of room!

AFT BA category is the way to go. These have a larger balcony than the port or starboard balconies. Not much time spent in the room in the first place, but the time you do spend is outside looking at where you just visited. Or just getting that panoramic view while underway. No noise from the outdoor cafe above nor vibrations or noise from the propulsion system.

Good, not great Steph27
10168 aft is a great location. Balcony is larger than regular BA. I suggest they leave the loungers on the balcony so you do not have to request them. Closet is a good size but decor is too jaring. Orange, pink and blue are not my favorite color combinations.
