Deluxe Balcony Cabins

7 Reviews
A larger version of a balcony stateroom includes all the same amenities, plus a comfortable sofa bed to relax and rejuvenate. This stateroom also offers some of the same amenities found in a mini-suite stateroom, including upgraded bathroom amenities, waffle bathrobe, terry cloth towels, and an upgraded duvet insert.

Deluxe Balcony (D4)
We had a deluxe balcony and it was the smallest balcony cabin that we have ever had. However they boost – “deluxe amenities you'd expect from a first class hotel” - really?!. There is not sufficient storage space and we had to keep most of our clothes in our suitcases under the bed. The sitting area is so small that you can’t sit at the desk and have someone sit on the sofa. Speaking of the sofa it was the smallest one that I have ever had and barely seats 2 people. You can’t even use the TV remote while seating on the sofa so you are forced to watch TV on the bed. Speaking of which with such a new ship the mattress needs replacement. Getting to the balcony – I don’t know how they call this a deluxe larger balcony! It was soooo small.

Disappointed 07bucephalus
The cabin was very good as expected, excepting for excessive rattling caused by vibration. we discussed this with another passenger on the same deck whose cabin was a forward balcony, and which had the same vibration problems.

We were staying in a premium category suite with balcony. Whilst this was a largish suite the layout made it strangely claustrophobic. There was plenty of closet space but very few drawers. The balcony was long but very narrow which made it difficult to negotiate your way around the furniture. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom and separate toilet were both large with separate bath and shower. The fridge came fully stocked as a complimentary bar but once these were gone it becomes a pay as you go bar.

Great Ship Careena

The balcony cabin was the same size & layout as other ships - queen bed, desk, chair, small sofa & regular ship size bathroom with the normal layout. The room was quiet and comfortable & you can adjust your own heat/coolness. It had a large TV hanging on the wall, however it was only showing various news progams for normal tv but had selections for movies etc that you could choose from. Our balcony was larger because it was angled to conform with the shape of the ship.

We had a aft facing balcony listed as a premium balcony on the Aloha (12) deck. It had no cover from the deck above; it was less deep from room to railing than the floor above and below. None of the above was given in the description. Some overhang from the deck above to shade and deep enough for loungers with foot rests (as deeper balconies had) would have been worth the extra money for that premium designation, but this deck was not even as good as side balconies as they have overhead covers. I am sure I called and asked about the overhang because of the same problem with another cruise, but the phone people do not know every deck on every ship and so you cannot really find out the details. Since it was not an obstructed balcony, they do not feel the need to describe decks differently. Don't pay for a premium deck unless you know exactly what you are getting for the money. Very disappointing! Room was fine but nothing special for a balcony room.
