Aft-View Extended Balcony staterooms feature a larger balcony for more lounge-around room, two twin beds (convert to a king) and a single sofa bed, sofa and coffee table, desk and seat, and a full bathroom with shower.
I choose a Aft Balcony, cabin 7466. For me, this was a huge mistake. While the views were outstanding and the cabin seemed larger than other balcony's, there was way too much motion. I have never gotten seasick, until this cruise. I had tried using Scopolamine patches, ginger ale, and Dramamine and nothing worked. I only felt better when I was at the middle of the ship or on land. If you are not bothered by motion, you will love this cabin! Read entire member review >>
We had extended balcony stateroom 7467, which is located at aft, overlooking the stern. We like aft balconies not only for the extra room, but for a better view. Since the privacy screens to either side slope, you and your neighbors see each other when standing at the rail, but I didn’t see this as a big issue. This ship seems to have a slight side-to-side “shimmy” when going full speed, quite noticeable aft. If you are bothered by motion sickness stick to a mid-ships cabin. The balcony was just large enough for a chaise lounge and 2 side chairs, and the room itself appeared to be slightly longer than other balcony rooms, with everything in good working order. There were two hanging closets and one with shelves, adequate for the three of us. Read entire member review >>
We LOVED our stateroom!!! Aft Extended Balcony on Deck 7 (7465), sandwiched between other staterooms. It was very quiet and we never heard people speaking loudly in the hallways or doors banging. And the balcony....WOW!!!
At first I was a little hesitant to pay extra for an extended balcony because I didn't know if we would spend much time there. Well it turns out that we spend A LOT of time there! We would eat breakfast on our balcony every morning, do sail away at every port from our balcony (the views are spectacular!) and had one last drink, looking at the stars and moon before going to bed every night. I could feel a little bit more motion in our room, but it wasn't that bad. We slept like babies every night! On port days we could hear the thrusters (sp?) while docking, but it lasted less than 5 minutes. But every port days we were up and getting ready before the ship docked, so it never woke us up.
