J and S,
We quite enjoyed our balcony cabin on the Emerald Princess. It was mid Aloha Deck 406 and was very private. We were on Deck 12. The balcony cabins below us on Deck 10 and on Deck 9 might have been larger, however, there was no privacy. We were able to stand out on our balcony and simply look down on the individuals sitting on their balcony. Not my cup of tea.
