We just returned from Hawaii on the Island Princess. We were in cabin D518 which is a mini-suite with a balcony. We have been on many cruises and always try to get a similar cabin on a lower deck near mid-ships, which cuts down the rocking in heavy seas. The balcony is not covered, and overlooks the promenade deck. No obstruction. Room for 4 chairs and a table.
The balcony is fully exposed from above and from the higher decks on each side. Who cares!
At out age, we do not plan any hanki-panki on the balcony.
Works for us!

Thanks for the reply. That was very helpful info...especially the pics of the balcony situation. We are on the Dolphin deck...toward the center of the ship.
