Has anyone stayed in this cabin or its equivalent? The balcony looks like it is much bigger than others in the same category on the deck plans. Are they really or is it just an out of scale drawing.

Also, are you being looked down upon by cabins on the Baja deck?

Well, I've stayed in C510 on the Grand (not sure how similar they are). It was a bigger balcony - your travel agent would know for sure. It was 50/50 - if you stood by the railing, those above you could see you, but the back half of our balcony was completely private. The deck below us (Dolphin) was 100% non-private.

If you look at the deck plans they are close to scale. If it looks bigger it probalbly is. Your category will also indicate what you are getting. A suite has a bigger balcony than a mini and then there are some regular balcony categories that state larger or extended. We had a mini suite balcony that was fully exposed on the Diamond. There was no probelm with privacy. I enjoyed it being open. In my Diamond review I gave all the balcony sizes for the Diamond and it may be of some help.

Mary, if you take a look at the deck plan, you'll see an 8-cabin wide section midship that sticks out a bit on both the Coral and the Island, its sister ship. Cabin C508 is only two cabins away from the edge of that section and you may find that your view to the right (assuming you're facing the ocean and not your cabin door!) may be partially blocked. If it's possible, you may want to try to move aft a few cabins (say, C514, C516 or around there) for a more panoramic view from the balcony.

Unlike the Grand Class ships (Grand/Golden/Star and also the Caribbean and the new Crown), where the decks are fairly uniform with respect to balcony size and covered/uncovered-ness, the Coral and Island aren't quite so simple. The BA category cabins, which are all on Caribe deck, do have slightly larger (deeper, not wider) balconies than the cabins above (cat BC) on the Baja deck. Therefore, your Caribe deck balcony will be half-covered, so if you step out to the railing you can see and be seen, or you can stay underneath the balcony above for shade and shelter and/or more (but not complete) privacy! It's the best of both worlds!

Hope this helps!

-Steve
