Could someone give me a little insight as to how much better a balcony is, I would like a visual from a cruisers perspective. I am a first time cruiser.

Well I like the balcony so you can sit outside and relax or if you are in your room you can leave the door open and get a nice little breeze instead of having just a window and sometimes in my opinion the room can get stuffy and the balcony rooms are a little bigger, but not much I believe. So that is why I prefer a balcony.

If the balcony will not strain your budget, go for the balcony. It is great to sit outside of your room with a morning cup of coffee watching the sunrise. It is great to sit outside of your room in the evening with a drink of choice watching the sunset. Watching the sail-aways or docking in the ports of call is wonderful. When you're going to sleep at night, it is wonderful to have the door open to listen to the waves hitting the side of the ship as she glides through the water. There's a little extra room in the cabin as well. Just my opinion, however. Have a wonderful cruise!!

If you would like to out outside with out having to leave you own cabin you need one. How much better is a balcony? It's worth a few hundred dollars for me to have one.

If you can afford it a balcony is the way to go!

I think balcony is a unanimous choice....If it is in the budget that is the only way to go and it makes extra-curricular activities a little more exciting!!!

Good Morning Everyone. My first cruise is in January 2007 and we chose a balcony as well, I'm so glad we did. Actually there is 3 of us so we chose to go with a Jr. Suite which has a little bigger balcony. I am soooo excited, I have never been on a cruise before, so it feels like a looooong time until we go, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Have a great day everyone.

Sandra
