Panic not. The previous poster was talking about an aft balcony. If yours is on the side of the ship, there won't be anyone leering into your balcony. That being said, your neighbors on either side can see you if you are leaning on the rail, etc., because the balcony is separated by a full height plastic panel. Simply stated, the balcony is for sightseeing, relaxing, romance, but probably not "intimacy"...
