Am considering and have a opportunity to get a balcony at the rear of the ship on the Legend. What are the pros and cons?

You get double the standard sized balcony. You also can see the sights for either side of the the ship. When I get a balcony, it is always the balcony on the aft of the ship.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the replies.

One of my concerns is if you get any smoke or soot from the stacks.

What about the wind? Do you get any breeze or is it a dead spot?

What about cigarette or cigar smoke from the other balconies?

We've had an aft balcony on the Legend twice...minimal soot, no problems with cigar/cigarette smoke, some vibration but nothing too bad. Lovely views. My only complaint was that you get very little breeze and on a hot Caribbean cruise you really appreciate a breeze.
