Looking at booking this ship What are the aft cabins ie #904 like? I know the last cruise Carnival Liberty we had the aft cabin with a HUGE balcony, I understand the ones on the RCI ships are not the same but curious if it is worth booking one of those opposed to the regular balconies. Can you see down to the water or is it obstructed? Also anyone been to the Bannister Island Tour in Belize? Looks beautiful.

We have had aft cabins. On a ship this big remember it is a hike to the stairwell/elevators from the very back. The balconies are bigger. The back of the ship angles downward toward the water so you do look down onto balconies on lower tiers of rooms. The balconies are warmer, sunnier at times, due to the shelter of the ship breaking the wind when underway. We got a lot of cigarette/ cigar smoke even when underway because you are shielded from the wind by the body of the ship. You have to decide what you like: Bigger/less private. More opportunity for sun/other peoples sounds and smells. Seeing down onto other people and them seeing down onto you/being able to see the ports of call no matter what side of the ship faces the island.

Thanks for your input, I do remember it being a hike to our cabin on the Carnival Liberty & Freedom and they are shorter in length. I guess you can consider it "exercise" I just loved the view we had, since the aft of the ship is a different configuration than the carnival ships I can see how the privacy level would be altered somewhat. I'm not too concerned about seeing others, not so sure I want them seeing me Costa Maya was such a pretty port, think I may give up a little privacy, afterall i can just go hide in my cabin for that.
Thanks for your advice.
