The spacious approximately 210 to 234-square-foot Balcony stateroom is appointed with fine amenities and outstanding views from an approximately 35 to 72-square-foot private balcony. Some staterooms also have pullman beds to accommodate 3rd and 4th passengers.
The cabin was a nice standard balcony state room. The fact that the air conditioning wasn't working on two different occasions was a major problem. It took hours to get it fixed. It was hot and humid. The bathroom towels were in sad shape. The toilet seat was scarred and scratched from I don't know what. I noted that the public toilet seats were all bright and shiny and new. The bedsheets are pretty nice and when I needed and asked for a different pillow I got it. Read entire member review >>
Our bed was quite comfortable and we were pleased to find a king bed as opposed to the queen bed we expected. The chair provided always proved to be in the way, with me continually asking my husband to move because he was obstructing a mirror or a drawer while I finished dressing.
The angle of the television could not be adjusted. The angle at which it was fastened made the picture good if you were standing on the bed, but we tend not to do that. I doubt if most people do. Read entire member review >>
We always choose a balcony cabin to be on an upper deck, as we like the easy access to the open deck, pools and hot tubs. It was well positioned but the terrible smell mentioned above, in the corridor outwe side appeared to come from the toilets outside the Horizon Court directly above. This really must be fixed, as it was incredibly unpleasant, though fortunately did not seep into our cabin.
Our steward Jaime was always cheerful, and extremely efficient, maintaining our cabin to a very high level, however the fittings are beginning to look very tired. Read entire member review >>
We booked our balcony cabin E306 which is Emerald Deck on Port side. It was right by the elevators and stairways, so we just stepped out our door into the elevator and we were whisked to Lido Deck 14 for the buffets and pools, etc. It came right out at the entrance to both. One stairway down and we were right at the door to the promenade deck for our walks. When we wished to go to the Atrium for the Dining Rooms, etc. we turned right out of our cabin and walked down a short hallway and we were at the elevator or the stairs for a short descent to Deck 5 or 6 for dining. The room was incredibly quiet. We heard other folks out in the hallway only a few times, but never a bother. Above us we only had more cabins - never book a cabin below Lido. We absolutely loved the location for our cabin. Read entire member review >>
Loved the balcony. Yes the bathrooms are small but then again you are on a ship. Food was great, if you could find anything to eat I believe it would be you own fault. The whole crew was nice and tried to make your time special. Read entire member review >>
