Aft-Facing Balcony Cabins

38 Reviews
With room for up to three guests, these staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate one more. Along with a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing aft-facing view and larger than normal balconies.

We booked a suite with balcony, so we expected extra services. Butler and concierge were a waste of time and money. Our suite was nice - living area with separate bedroom. Balcony was accessible from both rooms. The first day people in suite above us threw pretzels at the birds. Unfortunately most of the pretzel pieces fell on our balcony. The cleaning staff never swept our balcony or vacuumed the carpeting. It rained 3 of the 4 days, so we had pretzel mush on the balcony and carpet.

We love aft cabins. The cabin was small but clean. The bathroom was small and the shower was smaller, but clean as well. It was comfortable for 2 people. The balcony was perfect except they had too many chairs, 2 chairs and 2 loungers and a table, which made it a little squishy. It was all perfect. Aft cabins are above the theater so it is quite loud when there is a show. Luckily there is only one show in the evening, but sometimes in the afternoon when there is rehearsal, it gets loud too, but not for long though.

Room: 9276 – Aft-facing balcony

Our Personal Cruise Consultant picked this room for us. It was FAB! He said Deck 10 in under the outdoor restaurant so deck 9 is better.
The views from the aft facing balcony were fabulous & exciting to see.
Room size is just ok. Not enough storage, but for a short cruise it was ok.
The shower was extremely small. Not a big deal for us, but I’m sure it is for some.

Room was clean and tidy and plenty big enough for the two of us. The balcony was nice as we love the aft facing balcony always.

Aft Balcony Cabin 9076: Tiny, tiny, tiny. Cracked lampshades, debris left by prior guests in cabin still there upon our arrival; the balcony advertised as "larger" was barely large enough for 2, tiniest I've ever had. We had maybe 6-8 inches between the foot of the bed and the wall to walk around the bed. The shower was extremely small, I barely fit and able to turn around and I'm no large person (5'3", 130lbs).

The room (aft facing balcony room on deck 10) was larger than expected. Large bed, little desk area and small bathroom. The balcony was nice and had two beach chairs. Unfortunately, you don't get a whole lot of privacy. It's rather easy for people staying at either side of your room to look into your balcony. Not to mention that it can be seen from the public deck above. Otherwise, the balcony had a nice view. The mini bar was locked until the next day but I'm not sure if this was intentional or not. I would have loved a Wi-Fi option in the Stateroom, even if I had to pay for it. There is only Wi-Fi in certain public areas. It's slow and expensive. There should be more TV channels in the room.

Aft facing balcony. Small closet, very nice view. Carpet needs replacement, not much storage space. Bath is cramped. We had a bit of debris falling on us when we were on the balcony as we were just below (deck 10) the Garden Cafe.

Got us hooked! Joanne Batty
Great cabin, had a curtain we could close to help baby sleep in travel cot. Not much room left when travel cot up but expected this. Balcony big and offered great views. Very quite room, a little noise from the hallway but as we were at the end of the ship found not many people passed by.

Small. More like Motel 6 than a cruise ship.

Wonderful florida Sky Vigo.cruiser
Good balcony - light cabin as it has glass across the whole of the end wall (includes a sliding door to the balcony). Some noise from the Outdoor cafe above but not enough to complain about or wake you up, mainly at 5.30am when the crew clean the deck, but if you were awake you heard it for 5-10 minutes at most.

The Closets need to be re-fitted in order to utilize the available space in a more efficient manner.

Balcony was great and the boat was amazingly quiet but it's showing it's age. Only time I noticed cigarette smoke was at the casino.

The balcony was in direct sunlight all day and got very hot, the room was small, and the air conditioning did not work. Great bedding, though.
