Aft-Facing Balcony Cabins

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.

Great room, would recommend this view to anyone going on a Panama Canal Cruise or a Alaska Cruise.

Smaller than your average balcony, and definitely not worth the extra money. This was the first time I've ever cruised that the room steward didn't introduce themselves and check to see if we needed anything.

Cabin 8634
Aug 2016
I took advice from previous postings and booked an aft balcony stateroom. I concur with a previous review - an aft stateroom balcony provides the grandest vantage point for viewing Marjorie Glacier and Glacier Bay in general. It was worth every penny to be able to sit outside and soak up the scenery as we moved through Glacier Bay and during transits to other ports. We have amazing video and photos from the balcony. A great touch was having park rangers onboard to provide narration over the ship's intercom system. One note about a prior review complaint about stateroom 8634 being too noisy because it's over Bliss Lounge: If you are sensitive to noise, you will want to go higher. However, we had no noise or vibration problems. My advice- pack ear plugs and use them if you need them.

Novice Cruise to Alaska By: 1959Cruiser
Just perfect. Plenty of room for our suitcases and clothing - there were two of us on the week long cruise. Lots of drawer and shelf space. Cabin was clean and nicely maintained. Everything was in working order. Nice shower with soap dispenser and shampoo dispenser which was enough for me. There was a shelf in the shower for my wife's things. The toilet area was a bit cramped but it worked. The bed was comfortable enough and queen size. The aft balcony was a real plus. When the wind off the ocean was cold, the aft balcony was fine. And did not have to worry about the 25 mph wind from the ship moving forward. Deck 10 aft is an excellent place. Room was quiet and conveniently located near excellent dining choices. Steward was great.

Right above the Ultra Lounge, disco was booming all night, not good for light sleepers.

Horrible Disembarking By: compayre
the aft cabin was great for viewing the Alaska scenery. The cabin was in need of updating and the furniture needed to be replaced. It also was cramped for the three of us. The bathroom was made way too small due to them having a sliding door in the toilet area.

Cabin 10168
Jan 2013
Aft Balcony (B1) 10168 was great! The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. (2 twins form queen). Good storage space and don't forget to put luggage under the bed! Bathroom was good size for a cruise ship with sliding doors for the shower and separate toilet area for privacy. Plenty of shelves for stuff. I liked the fact that the hair dryer was in the room near the balcony door which freed up the bathroom. Our balcony was larger than BB balconies or other afts on different decks. It was 10 ft x 8 ft. Deck 10 so only cabins above and below. No ash, little wind and little vibration. Awesome view of the wake and on each side! Our daughters had the inside across from us (10167) which had the head of their beds facing forward instead of side to side. Their bathroom was different with the toilet area and sink area together. (They did not have the slider toiler area that we did).

Great balcony. Room for 2 loungers, 2 chairs, and a small table. Only draw back was people in above cabin smoking and dropping their ash and cigarettes which wound up on our balcony.

We were fortunate to book two side-by-side BA staterooms on the very back of the ship, deck 9. I cannot say enough good things about the view from these rooms! Wake view and you can see both port and starboard views as well. We saw so many whales feeding in our wake while heading into Juneau. Amazing! The room was fine with regards to size. Suitcases fit under the bed perfectly. Another tip with the rooms is to buy a clear over-the-door shoe holder to hang over the towel bar on the bathroom door. Great suggestion from another CC member to hold all of our toiletries without cluttering the counter of the bathroom. Also, we definitely made use out of the in-room coffee maker while in Glacier Bay. Bring some of the hot chocolate packets back to your room from the Garden Cafe, heat up some water, and voila! Yummy goodness while viewing the glaciers from our balcony.

Worse Cruise Ever By: MDcruiser07
Closet and storage space was OK. Tiny bathroom and the smallest staterooms in the Fleet. Our room was across from the art auction storage closet - noise in the hallway at all hours. Tripped over ice chests in the halls and small buckets of cleaning water the entire week. Disembarkation in port was routed through stateroom hallways making it difficult to get into or out of your room if you were unlucky enough to be on deck 4. Balcony railings in need of varnish, windows weren't washed, deck wasn't mopped for excess water.
