Excellent room with a lot of space & storage. Balcony much much larger than a standard balcony cabin. Had two chairs, table & lounge chair. Only complaint was the hack repair job in the bathroom behind toilet. Looks like the cut a square section out with a reciprocating saw than screwed the piece back on and messily caulked the seam.

Immaculate and spacious. A mini-suite, really! Beds were comfortable, and the bunk beds where our boys slept were very sturdy and roomy, without taking up any more space in the cabin. Read More

We had a premium balcony room #7299 and it was fantastic! One of the best rooms I've had so far (#6485 an aft wrap on the Splendor beats it out on the basis of the huge balcony that room had). The room is nearly a suite and had a big balcony with 2 regular chairs, a table and a lounger. It had the nice marble counters in the bedroom and bathroom that the suites have and loads of closet space! Read Less

Chose a balcony room and was offer reasonable upgrades to aft balcony which we like or "Premium Balcony". Went with the later, 6279. LOVED this room. Will try to upload pics. It was right off the elevator but surprisingly quiet. Dressing table was right inside the door so I could navigate around the room while my wife was getting ready without tripping over her. I'm guessing this room is 30-40% larger than a standard balcony room. Balcony had 2 lounge chairs, 2 regular chairs and a small table. Updated with granite counters and flat-screen TV

We had a Premium Balcony cabin 7299 (Cat 9B) which is what I would call a “mini-suite”. Bigger than a standard balcony cabin but not as big as a suite. We booked this cabin class as on our last Miracle cruise we personally found the standard balcony cabin to be a little tight for our tastes. Even though it is just the two of us and the comparatively little time spent in the cabin, we found the Premium Balcony cabin 7299 to be better than expected. Two closets (one by the door the other by the bathroom) provided more than ample storage with generous hanging space on the right and shelving space on the right in each. There is also a cabinet with three drawers beside the bathroom door which we never even used. The bathroom is the standard compact style of all cabins (except suites, that is). The only “goodies” we had were samples of Breathe-Right strips and sunburn relied ointment. (FYI, the sunburn relief can in handy because I threw all caution to the wind and put on no sunscreen during the trip. Ouch!) There is liquid shampoo and body wash dispensers in the shower; these do the job but recognize they are generic. If you have a strong preference, take the packing plunge and bring travel size versions of your own soap/shampoo. There is a generous console with full mirror backdrop for a dressing area, the safe cabinet and the mini-fridge. Note: leave the door of the cabinet holding the mini-fridge open if you can. I am not sure if it is an old wives tale, but I read somewhere this helps the fridge stay cooler due to the heat generated by the fridge. It was indeed very warm inside the fridge cabinet with the door closed so I just left it open. After removing the standard “mini bar” contents and stocking the soft beverages we brought with us, they seemed to stay nicely chilled. Not cold-cold but cold enough for our tastes without needing ice.

Speaking of cold-cold, this cabin was cold. I mean long-sleeve, light coat wearing cold. Now, I am one of those people that prefers it on the cool side and even for me, this room felt cold. The thermostat was dialed all the way to the warm side, but it never really seemed to change until day 5 when it because truly comfortable. We chose not to say anything for fear of any change being made resulting in it being too warm. This was our choice; others may do differently. However, for those who appreciate a cool room (or for those afraid of all those cabin-too-hot reviews), have no fear of this cabin.

The bed was firm and, to me, comfortable. I suspect others may find it too hard as it did have an extra-firm feel with not much of a top plush. Suggestion? Lay down the extra comforter stored in a drawer under the couch (if you bed is not set up as two twins) and you’ll get a bit more of a “pillow top” effect.
The Premium balcony was much better than our last Extended balcony. There was more than ample room for one fixed-back chair, one reclining-back chair, one full reclining lounger and a small end table. We did spend a fair amount of time (from minutes to hours) enjoying the balcony during the week and for those who like private space, this balcony provides it. Others find it a negative (I don’t) but if you look straight down from the balcony railing, the lifeboats are there. Otherwise, the balcony view is pretty darn amazing.
