Balcony Cabins

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. They also feature a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing view.

A Wonderful Time
We loved our cabin steward he was wonderful Alejandro. He was kind and provided advise, our room was cleaned daily and everyday we had a special animal created with towels. Even with the cabin being small, always having it cleaning we did not mind the small space.

Small, old, musty smell. Balcony was OK with 2 chairs and small table.

The cabin was just perfect, there's nothing like waking up in the morning to the first light of the sun as it rises out of the ocean, gorgeous sight to see really. And Jimmy our Cabin steward was just amazing, very prompt, attentive and always making sure we were happy with our room.

Fine Four Days FourUpState

Room was fine, not new but worked. The sliding door is only on one side, the other side is a port hole, I think this has changed on newer ships. The décor is not as "rich" looking as other ships, but all is clean and in working order. Bathroom and shower were fine.

Ok so this room DOES exist!!! We were a little worried about it when we saw this room was assigned to us, there are pros and cons so read on. First this room is a little bigger then all of the other standard balcony rooms onboard. It was added at a latter date I guess but the one big difference is the bathroom. It is smaller and does not have any room around the sink to set down anything. When you open the door there is a sink and no counter around it at all! There is a wall vanity with a little storage behind the mirrors but thats it. The shower is also smaller the shower curtain was clinging to my back the whole time I was in there and the toilet is almost in the shower with you!! There are towel racks which are overflowing with the towels, hand towels and wash clothes because there is no other place to put them. You literally have to use the toilet to set something down unless you want to put it on the floor! That said the overall room is bigger then the others, because of the bathroom layout and the door comes out more into the hall giving you a little extra space. So if you can deal with the bathroom then you will have a little more overall space. Its a personal preference I guess, but no matter what it was fine for a 3 day cruise, not much noise at all and the elevators are close. I am basically writing this because there were no reviews of this cabin which made us worry even more, if you book it dont worry its really there and not too bad of a cabin for a 3 or 4 day.

0253: again, great location quiet nice balcony plenty of room in closets & I always over pack! I think for my 4 night cruise I brought 8 pairs of shoes! But, again, I am an "over packer" and I had plenty of room. 2 good points to remember...... suitcases can be stored under bed and I saw someone said in another post the water did not get hot. Well, I thought that too until I figured out, it's opposite of what you are used to H vs C.

Very quiet, balconies are perfect, bed was comfy, room decent sized overall, clean and simple bathroom, water wasnt that cold in the sink but not an issue, Small but ok TV and small couch that pulled out. Overall was perfect and we loved it!

The cabin was fine. Just very small in comparison to other ships. Good Location to stairs to the bad buffet and pricey spots to eat. Our cabin stewards were great.

Our Stateroom- Was small (smallest balcony stateroom we have ever had). On top of the tight quarters, it lacked sufficient storage space for 2 adults, even though it was listed as able to accommodate 3 people. As a result, one of us had to keep our clothes in our suitcase the entire cruise. The space around the bed was inadequate for one person, let alone for more than one to circulate. The Bathroom shower was equally inadequate, including a shower curtain that would not stay in place, which we believe explains why, upon our arrival, our Stateroom's carpet was wet! The carpet was also worn and dirty, the room could have been cleaned better, the edges of the carpet near the walls were very dirty and dusty, the room did have a refrigerator with beverages for purchase, the hairdryer was very old and provided very little heat and power, the TV in the cabin was very old, storage is very limited in the cabin with a very small closet area and only 3 small storage drawers for clothes.

Dissapointing designercruiser
This cabin was on the wrong side of the ship to see the islands when the ship pulled into and out of port. It was nicely located near the elevators and the main dining rooms and pool deck. The furniture was falling apart and in need of repair and cleaning. Average in the way of room size and balcony.

Room 0222 (10th floor) Right around the corner from the elevator, this room is a good size for a typical stateroom. The large round window and sliding glass door allows for plenty of sunlight. The balcony has a full size privacy panel between other stateroom balconies. The doors on this particular room don't close easily and I'm sure my neighbors always heard us slamming the door. Plenty of closet space with drawers inside. The hairdryer is hidden in the top desk drawer! The shower water temperature fluctuates somewhat, so set it on the cooler side at first. Plenty of storage room in the bathroom for toiletries.

Tiny bathroom, electric outlet did not work. Balcony was fine, bed was much too hard. Clean. Would definitely go for a bigger room with balcony next time.

We had a balcony room on Deck 9 and we really like it. The room was small but the balcony made it feel larger. I was thankful that we had our own bathroom, television, sofa and comfortable bed to ourselves.

Sky Review cruising90210
We loved having the balcony, It was very nice to be able to sit on your own private balcony and watch the port as you sail away.

Our room was located directly under the spa - very quiet. Rooms were VERY SMALL!!! However, the room next to ours 0201, is the same category, but is a handicapped room, and was HUGE!!!!!! Showers were maybe 18-24 inches and circular....very wierd.

Nice, but small room with large balcony! Not a lot of extra room.

Great view, even with the extra space, it was a bit cramped for three persons.
